Principles of Scientific Management


In principles of scientific management, Frederick Taylor argues that scientific methods need to be implemented in management style to increase efficiency at work place. He goes on further to say that jobs need to be divided among workers to increase productivity and revenue. He expresses the significance of management commitment to the scientific management method. Taylor also stresses the essentials of worker trainings and gradual implementation of scientific management methods to see over all changes. To see complete work place efficiency and increase in earnings this method needs be welcomed by the entire labor force. He explains employment industries needs to welcome scientific management in order to benefit and see change.

Taylor spectacles the main motivation and objective for companies and managers were to maximizing profit by increasing productivity. He also believes that workers are driven and motivated by money. I disagree with this point he makes, I believe this reference puts down workers and the general labor force. He overlooks the possibility workers love their jobs and companies enjoyed to seen their final product produced. To imply workers work hard to maximize their wages is suggesting money is the driving force behind people's motivation.

Taylor over and over stresses managers and companies only adapt scientific management method if they only understand the fundamental method. What are these fundamental methods he is referring? What do you think Taylor would say about today's management style? Do you think today's management style implements scientific management method?
