While there is increasing use of the terms ownership or sense of ownership, there is a paucity of research regarding what these terms mean, how this body of knowledge influences employee behavior, and the various approaches that can be applied in contemporary research and practice.

Applying the concept of ownership can increase the productivity and also help to develop motivated environment in the organization.

Implications are discussed regarding how this sense of ownership advances in modern day organizational environment and how relevant employees consider it for their behavior in the organization and what sort of implementations organization should do to nurture this feeling .
