9780807844694: Taylorism Transformed: Scientific Management Theory Since 1945

This intellectual history interprets recent American business management ideas as political theory, describing their underlying assumptions about power and value. According to Stephen Waring, most business management theory descends from either Frederick Taylor's 'bureaucratic' theory of scientific management or Elton Mayo's 'corporatist' idea of human relations. Waring discusses the subsequent evolution of several management theories and techniques, including organization theory, computer simulation, management by objectives, sensitivity training, job enrichment, and innovations usually attributed to the Japanese, such as quality control circles.

Book Description:

"Combining masterful accounts of the development of theory with textured vignettes of specific industrial settings, this volume is thoroughly grounded in impressive research and often quite brilliant. A stunning first book that offers much to historians and social scientists and to all those interested in current discussions of competitiveness and relative decline."--Mary O. Furner, Northern Illinois University

From the Back Cover:

Waring discusses the subsequent evolution of several management theories and techniques, including organization theory, computer simulation, management by objectives, sensitivity training, job enrichment, and innovations usually attributed to the Japanese, such as quality control circles.
