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.

This classic text on the standardization and efficiency of labor was a source of misery and alienation for workers, but it also spurred the labor movement to action. It's a difficult read, if only because of the sheer menace and inhumanity of the ideas being presented. That being said, the book is very much worth a look if you want to know where the 21st century corporate world came from.

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.
