A critical analysis of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs and Herzberg’s Two-Factor Theory

Maslow (1987) was responsible for classifying human needs in a hierarchical fashion. At the bottom of the hierarchy are survival needs, next come security needs followed by needs for love, affection and affiliation. Then come competence needs and finally, self-actualisation.
