Section: IE 2104 Subject: IOM Quiz Write three (3) paragraphs explaining the concept of Scientific Management Over a hundred years ago, a man named Frederick Winslow Taylor introduced a revolutionary idea relating on how to run a business effectively and efficiently that forever changed the way employers view their people and organization, and this idea is now we called Scientific Management Theory. The premise of this theory is that the key to improving labor productivity and expertise in performance lies within the administration and the systematic management that runs the organization. The scientific management approach is associated with the belief that the application of science principles in all aspects of work, worker, and workplace would enhance performance and output. To understand the idea better, Taylor explicated that in order to meet the goals of your business in much reduced time frame, the manager, the labor, and the workers must all conspire together. He developed the idea that breaking down tasks and simplifying them would increase the amount produce and would lessen the time required. In relation to this, he also believed that dividing the activities into smaller parts would determine the most efficient way of doing it. He suggested that the organizations must hire people whose skill level is well suited for the job that they want to be done, and proposed that the organization must monitor and provide training for their workers to the job in a standardized and specific way. While Taylor’s Scientific Management theory clinged more to output and worker’s capacity, the Gilbreth’s further studies about this management approach is more concerned with the worker’s welfare. Instead of reducing the process time, the Gilbreths focused on reducing the motions involved while doing work to promote the interest and comfort of employees. Even though both studies were introduced in the 1900s, the influence of the scientific management theory is still relevant and utilized today. Though not explicitly, its principles are still observed in some management measures used in today’s organizations such as organizational charts, performance evaluations, quality measurements, and production goals.
