   A Timeline of Management   

1880 - Scientific Management

Frederick Taylor decides to time each and every worker at the Midvale Steel Company. His view of the future becomes highly accurate:

"In the past man was first. In the future the system will be first."

In scientific management the managers were elevated while the workers' roles were negated.

"Science, not rule of thumb," said Taylor.

The decisions of supervisors, based upon experience and intuition, were no longer important. Employees were not allowed to have ideas of responsibility. Yet the question remains -- is this promotion of managers to center-stage justified?

1929 - Taylorism

The Taylor Society publishes a revised and updated practitioner's manual: Scientific Management in American Industry.
