Book Description

The Principles of Scientific Management – Elite Illustrated Edition

- Includes 30 specially created illustrations to enhance the clarity of the text.
- Optimised for Kindle with fully implemented navigation features.

This is the classic management text which introduced the application of the ‘scientific method’ to management practice.
Taylor’s work is often quoted, but much less often read. Consequently his ideas are much misunderstood, indeed within the book, even before the ink had dried, Taylor details how his ideas had already been misinterpreted and malapplied. Updated to electronic format and newly illustrated throughout, this edition makes Taylor’s original work accessible to the ‘Kindle generation’.

eBook features:-
This volume is fully illustrated throughout and features a fully linked table of contents plus hyperlinked footnotes. Also included are ‘bookmarks’ navigable using the Kindle 4-way keypad to fully update this classic management text.

More About the Author

Steve Unwin is a creative thinker and internationally recognised speaker on the subject of change. Perhaps uniquely he combines the exacting mind of a scientist with the questioning of a philosopher, an almost child-like humility and a spiritual outlook.

In 1999 he received the UK's most prestigious award for business improvement from HRH The Princess Royal and began his unique exploration of how we can change our lives for the better.

As he describes it, "The world seems full of books that claim to have the answer, here I offer something that recognises that the best person to arrive at your answer is you, and that far from needing to be given it, you probably already have it... I seek to write without writing; to avoid answers by creating space between my words for the reader to discover their own answers."

Steve lives in Preston in the North-West of England.
