Christina Evans, Principal Lecturer in Human Resource Management and Leonard Holmes, Reader in Management, both of University of Roehampton Business School have co-edited the book Re-Tayloring Management: Scientific Management a Century On. Over a century has passed and yet there is growing evidence that knowledge workers across the globe today are as constrained by F.W. Taylor's much-maligned The Principles of Scientific Management, as factory workers were in the early twentieth century. The book was launched on Thursday 13 June.
Re-Tayloring Management looks critically at Taylor's philosophy on management and contrasts it with other perspectives that have since emerged, along with the professionalization of management and the growth in business and management education. The contributors demonstrated that despite the complexity and uncertainty that organizations face, instead of designing work systems where knowledge and service workers have the freedom to apply knowledge and skills at the point they are most needed, managers are obsessed with maintaining tighter control.
