Economic Psychology: concentrated around people's individual financial management behaviour (the use of automated teller machines, i.e. wallbanking - and other experiences with electronic banking devices, and the introduction of the euro,). 3. Research Methods Major long-term projects focus (or have focused) on the impact of managerial motivation as a predictor of professional success, managerial behaviour in health care units, rewarding systems and their impact on managers in the non-profit sector, social impact of quality management programmes, the psychology of wallbanking and electronic banking and the psychology of the euro.
