  2. 2. Industrial Revolution • Substitution of machine power for man power. • Mass production • Improved transportation and communication system. • Centralization of production activities. • Establishment of new employer employee relationships.
  3. 3. Problems • Short supply of skilled labor. • Losses, Wastage • Corruption • Favourism • Nepotism, • Laziness • Difficult to maintain efficiency and effectiveness
  4. 4. SCIENCETIFIC MANAGEMENT THEORY • Focuses on worker and machine relationships. • increasing the efficiency of production processes. • concerned with creating jobs that economize on time, human energy, and other productive resources.
  5. 5. Contributors. • F.W.Taylor (father of scientific management) • Frank and Lillian Gilbreth • Henry L. Gantt
  6. 6. FREDERICK TAYLOR (1856-1915) • He was finding more efficient methods and procedures for coordination and controlling work. • Principles of Scientific Management in which he proposed work methods designed to increase worker productivity. • Taylor broke the job down into its smallest constituent movements, timing each one with a stopwatch. The job was redesigned with a reduced number of motions as well as effort and the risk of error
  7. 7. Four basic principles for increasing efficiency. 1. The development of a true science for each persons work. 2. The scientific selection, training, and development of workers 3. Intimate friendly cooperation with the workers to ensure work is carried out in a prescribed way. 4. The division of work and responsibility between mgt. and the workers.
  8. 8. He believed that • There is a best machine for each work. • It is a best working method by which the workers should undertake • All work process should be analyzed into separate tasks by scientific method. • Each job was broken into component parts, each part timed and part rearranged into most efficient method of working. • Then it was possible to find the one best method to perform each task. • Employees can be motivated by highest possible wages through working in the most efficient and productive way. • Emphasis on fair day work.(differential rate systems). • He was a believer in the rational economic needs component of motivation.
  9. 9. Criticism • Emphasis on optimizing the level of worker productivity. • Workers require little skills. So they were found boring and monotonous. • Workers retained unfriendly. • Workers were regarded as machines and from a engineering point of view. • One best method is not always the best method for every worker. • Reduction of some physical movements is not always beneficial and some wasteful movements are essential to maintaing the overall rhythm of the work.
  10. 10. Criticism cont. • Operation managers gave a dangerous high level of power. • Workers were regarded as rational economic being motivated only by monitory incentives. • They were viewed as isolated individuals handled almost in the same way as machines. • He did not so much concern complexity of individuals and human behavior, importance of individuals own feelings, group working.
  11. 11. FRANK (1868-1924) AND LILLIAN GILBERTH (1878-1972) • Fatigue and motion studies to finding the ways of promoting the individual workers welfare. • Using motions cameras found the most economical motions and then upgrade performance and reduce fatigue. • Raise worker moral
  12. 12. HENRY L GANTT (1861-1919) • Reconsider the Taylors incentive system • Worker who finished the day’s assignment would win a 50% bonus. • Supervisor would earn a bonus for each worker who reach the daily standard, and extra bonus if all the workers reached it. • Workers progress was rated publicly. • Recorded and displayed in charts.

  26. 26. SYSTEMS APPROACHES • To recognize organizations as a; • Complex, integrated system of inter-related variables. • The systems theory looks at the organization as a whole, examining all relevant organizational variables simultaneously.
