Description
Content

Nudges have an important place in the knowledge base and toolbox of managers. Nudging is a behavioural science theory based on the concept that instead of a bold complicated move to influence people to act differently, you should make small, simple, gentle, economically neutral changes instead. It is designed to increase the receptivity, efficiency, effectiveness, productivity, welfare, and motivation of employees. It is popular in government, business and charities. Currently, because the theory is relatively new, most management texts do not cover the topic in practical business situations.
