Question and answer
advantage and disadvantages of f.w.taylor's scientific management theory
work was actually being done and that workers deliberately shirked work. [ He therefore suggested that those responsible for management should take on a scientific approach in their work and make use of scientific method for achieving higher efficiency. The method consists of the following: Observation Measurement Experimentation Inference He also developed the "Time and Motion Study". He
would break a job down into sections and measure each section to a hundredth of a minute. 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. The Theory also has its disadvantages, as some workers resented the idea of being watched and timed and this led to many strikes. Taylor published many articles and short monographs, his most famous being "The Principles of Scientific Management" in 1911 and "Shop Management" in 1903. ]
