Abstract

Motive scores (needs for Achievement, Affiliation, and Power) of the CEOs of the National Tourism Organizations (NTOs) in North-East Asia were determined using content analysis. The extent to which CEOs possess need for Achievement (n Ach), need for Affiliation (n Aff), and/or need for Power (n Pow) is significantly correlated with suc­cess in profit and nonprofit organizations. The present study findings show that tourism receipts per capita are high in a country whose vision is associated with high Achievement whereas tourism receipts per arrival are high in a country whose vision is associated with high Power.

Keywords: Vision, achievement, power, affiliation.
