He also developed the "Time and Motion Study". He

The advantages of this Theory is that organisations became much more successful and flexible. Also, each individual member of staff were scientifically trained and developed rather than leaving them to train themselves, giving them a much more successful working environment and the stability of a long term working relationship.

Taylor published many articles and short monographs, his most famous being "The Principles of Scientific Management" in 1911 and "Shop Management" in 1903. ]
