About the Author

Frederick Winslow Taylor (1856 1915), widely known as F. W. Taylor, was an American mechanical engineer who sought to improve industrial efficiency. He is regarded as the father of scientific management, and was one of the first management consultants. Taylor was one of the intellectual leaders of the Efficiency Movement and his ideas, broadly conceived, were highly influential in the Progressive Era.

A must read! Although dated in its practices (and with the characteristic convoluted English of those days), this book is the very inception of our modern managament stance. I've heard about those ideas from high school History teachers, whose always tend to be on the left side. For some misterious reason, they usually hit Taylor way too heavy when all he has proposed was to make better use of each individual prowess to everybody's benefit. Probable because of placing so much emphasis on the indivual aspect of work wheras leftist always like to think of people as meat robots - all alike. Anyway, I should have read it before. On two side notes, Taylor looks like having invented Business Intelligence and reported one of the first Data Mining cases.

F. W. Tayor originated so much of what we now take for granted in manufacturing and process engineering. His work, and ht work of the Gilbreth's et al. laid the foundation for what is now Lean. This provides to view the thinking of an original mind in his own words.

I really enjoyed the books story of the relationship of employees and their shared interest s. He goes on to a rant about apparent failures of the system he espouses. He sounds over zealous as a result and not credible.

I love this book because it is the beginning of scientific research in the domain I love: scientific organization and management. Frederick Winslow Taylor demonstrates how to improve efficiency of organization and management of workers’ processes through scientific studies. Principles enunciated by author are still valuable today. Every manager must have this book in his reference library.

This brought back memories from college. This is a great reminder of how some of the principals of management came about. Early thinking and modern applications from people we see in that field today. Same principals that have been enhanced in a modern world,. What is really surprising is how true those principals ring in a modern world.

Class text book so not purchased on a whim. Easy reading and very interesting how management principles were introduced during the industrial age. Those principles are being used today on the "one best way" to do a job efficiently.

A classical masterpiece laying the foundations of Industrial Engineering. Read this book to understand how much effort had gone into developing the science of work accomplishment and also for the behavioural elements that go along with it.
