The paper examines the technology enterprise. After the literature review, key motivation choices are listed out, namely training and development, authorization of innovation, promotion, involvement in management, which are optional incentives relevant to personal capability, as well as improvement of R&D working environment. The R&D personnel incentive-control mechanism is proposed based on the principal-agent relationship. Six groups, including MBA students, R&D personnel were selected as experimental subjects and corresponding experimental studies were performed after careful designing. The paper presents explorative discussion on the effectiveness and efficiency of two incentive-control mechanisms - trust and incentive- and has proposed a series of useful conclusions. In regard to effects and benefits, the experiment suggests that the trust incentive control method can achieve the win-win result under the unremitting learning condition.
