The ‘IKEA’ Effect Labor leads to love: There’s a link between labor to increase of valuation From the experiment: Participants who assemble the products, value them more highly than identical pre- assembled products The builders willingness to pay over something that they make by themselves is relatively higher than those who didn’t build the product Conclusion: increase in liking that occurs due to effort Increase of willingness to pay due to positive feelings that accompany the successful completion of task Goal: maximize customer satisfaction Risk/Challenge: Convince customers to engage in the labor that will lead them to value products more highly Task should not be too difficult as to lead to an inability to complete the task (reverse effect) Create motivational benefits of assigning employees to tasks they feel capable of completing
