Certainly the topic about motivation has been one of the most interesting ones so far. The fact that currently companies in Venezuela lack of it, makes it not only interesting, but the factor of differentiation that could give my future company the edge to brake through and be successful. Understanding that the company MUST be percieved as different and better, mean a great challenge in terms of having a correct strategy towards a corporate culture based on trust and meaning of the work being done. Civil engineerring, in my case could definitely be driven towards social benefit and impact towards the lower classes.
I appreciatted all I have learn so far, thanks for the time spent in class with us.

Last week, I was reading Greenberg's _Science, Money, and Politics: Political Triumph and Ethical Erosion_. Government funding of R&D has been increasing right along, especially at NIH, through several bouts of lobbying hysteria. The question is whether firms' investments in their employees (training & relo in particular) have been keeping up as bodyshopping has sky-rocketed. Even CDC in the late 1980s was cutting back, diverting employees from substantial classes to fluff. Haven't heard more from 3M's intrapreneurship efforts since 1987. In software project estimates, scheduling time and resources for the necessary and unpredictable numbers of cycles of experimentation is unheard of, and long days with the occasional 30-hour crunch shift are still the norm. Creativity suffers. (But one has to soldier on. Today, I'm polishing off Thomas Sowell's _Intellectuals & Society_.)
