"To quote the authors in the opening chapter of this book: 'Scientific Management means thinking scientifically instead of traditionally or customarily about the processes involved in the control of the social groups who co-operate in production and distribution.' This volume deals briefly with the lives and work of thirteen pioneers of scientific management who have had considerable influence on present methods of direction and control in business organisation and management. The book is of essential value and interest to all business executives." - inside DJ cover of Volume I
