Working as a team of 4-5, you are required to create a film clip of 5 minutes duration (suitable for viewing on e.g. Youtube) that explains the potential application of one or more key theories about motivating people in the workplace in a way that might be helpful for someone who has become a line manager for the first time. You should aim to make the film both informative and entertaining, to capture the attention of your potential audience. Your film should conclude with a reference list and a commentary indicating the sources you used to create your film.
