The Principles of Scientific Management

The Principles of Scientific Management Presentation

The Principles of Scientific Management, written by the North American engineer Frederick W. Taylor in 1911, has an extreme relevance in management as a knowledge course. In fact, Taylor’s work had the merit of being the first to look at management as a separate activity and perfectly identifiable. In it Taylor develops conclusions of his investigations about the most efficient way to fulfill individual tasks, creating what became known as work scientific management. After having identified each movement and action involved in the fulfillment of each task, Taylor determines the optimum time to perform them. From this optimum time, the manager could then evaluate the individual work quality.
