Riassunto: "The Principles of Scientific Management," a business efficiency classic by Frederick Winslow Taylor, is an influential essay that has motivated administrators and students of managerial technique for more than 80 years. Though Taylor's ideas are commonly viewed as antiquated because of the time and circumstances under which he worked, business thought leaders such as Deming, Juran, Shewart, and Taguchi all find their roots in Taylor. In the words of one reviewer, TQM and Collaborative Management are just Taylor on steroids. While it is true that Taylor applied his efforts mainly to work consisting of brute force, that was the workplace world which existed in his day. Taylorism and his task management ideas are actually more human than most people think. In the very first page of his first chapter, Taylor explains the principal of object of management, which "should be to secure the maximum prosperity for the employer, coupled with the maximum prosperity for each employee. The four elements of "The Principles of Scientific Management" are (1) the development of standardization of methods, (2) the careful selection and training of personnel, (3) extensive supervision by management and payment of bonuses, and (4) an equal division of the work and responsibility between the workman and the management. Advanced thinkers today are rediscovering the truths first elaborated by Taylor. As a result, "The Principles of Scientific Management" remains a ground-breaking, and still-inspiring, work.
Dal retro di copertina:
For more than 80 years, this influential work by Frederick Winslow Taylor?the pioneer of scientific management studies?has inspired administrators and students of managerial techniques to adopt productivity-increasing procedures. Indeed, this book laid the groundwork for modern organization and decision theory.
As an engineer for a steel company, Taylor made careful experiments to determine the best way of performing each operation and the amount of time it required, analyzing the materials, tools, and work sequence, and establishing a clear division of labor between management and workers. His experiments resulted in the formulation of the principles expounded in this remarkable essay, first published in 1911.
Taylor advocated a scientific management system that develops leaders by organizing workers for efficient cooperation, rather than curtailing inefficiency by searching for exceptional leaders someone else has trained. The whole system rests upon a foundation of clearly defined laws and rules. Moreover, the fundamental principles of scientific management apply to all kinds of human activities, from the simplest individual acts to the most elaborate cooperative efforts of mighty corporations. Correct application of these principles, according to Taylor, will yield truly astonishing results.
