This paper discusses the different issues involved in Taylorism - Taylor's theory of scientific management. The paper describes the major concepts of Taylorism, provides a critical review of this theory as opposed to other management theories and concludes with a synthesis of all the information.

From the Paper:

"With the coming of the Industrial age at the turn of the Century, and a new era, came the need for more efficient management techniques. Several Classical Theories evolved during the early years of this discipline. Fordism arose from a synthesis of the other earlier theories. Fayolism philosophy included close communication between bosses and workers. Taylorism developed a theory known as "Scientific Management" to study and set appropriate work quotas based on research. Lillian Gilbreth believed that workers were motivated by both direct and indirect motives. Arthur Gantt developed a task chart to help monitor and plan projects more efficiently."
