Summary
One hundred years ago American management faced many of the problems it confronts today - poor productivity, rapid technological change, and heightened competition. This program shows how mechanical engineer Frederick Taylor attempted to meet these challenges through "scientific management," an early 20th-century program aimed at organizing and making ruthlessly efficient all aspects of industrial production. The film includes original footage which Taylor and his peers shot for the pioneering time-motion studies that paved the way for automated assembly lines.
