Some psychological aspects of Maslow's motivation theory are discussed with a view to pointing out the usefulness of this theory in the industrial situation. It is suspected that industrial psychologists do not always interpret Maslow's theory correctly. The aspect of responsibility in the need for selfactualization seems to be undervalued, in some instances completely unrecognized. A logical conclusion drawn is that self-actualization, in accordance with Maslow's own description, is related to productivity.

Maslow se motiveringsteorie wat uit die kliniese sielkunde ontspruit het, is ook deur bedryfsielkundiges van nader beskou, veral in hoe verre dit met produktiwiteit verband het. Enkele sielkundige aspekte word bespreek ten einde op die nut van hierdie teorie in die bedryfsituasie te wys. Die vermoede bestaan dat die teorie deur bedryfsielkundiges nie altyd korrek vertolk word soos Maslow dit self uiteensit nie; veral word die verantwoordelikheidsaspek in die selfuitlewingsbehoeftes misken en nie verreken nie; 'n Logiese konklusie is dat selfuitlewing, soos deur Maslow beskryf, wel verband met produktiwiteit het.
