He then went on to become the GM of the company for the next 30 years. At the time of his retirement the company had become the biggest coal company in France. Before After

Emergence of Management Thought The Evolution of Management can be classified into 3 stages: 1.Classical Theory of Management Bureaucracy Theory - Max Weber Scientific Management - F.W. Taylor Process Management – Henri Fayol This is also known as the structural theory of management.
Bureaucracy A system of carrying on the business of government by means of departments or bureaus, each under the control of a chief, government conducted on this system. In the 1930’s Max Weber, a German sociologist, described bureaucratic form as being the ideal way of governing an organization. Essential & Basic Elements Hierarchy Division of Work A system of Rules Impersonality of impersonal relations Standardization Selection and Promotion Only legal power and Authority
Scientific Management Robert Owen, Charles Babbage & Henry Robinson Towne were the forerunners of scientific Management. Robert Owen: The first person to pay attention to labour welfare. He suggested a change in the attitude of industrialists towards workers. Charles Babbage: A leading British Mathematician at Cambridge University He studied the working conditions of factories and observed that most of them work on the basis of estimation & imagination. They were traditional rather then scientific. The pioneering work: Differential Engine on the ‘Economy of machinary and manufacturers.’ He said that methods of science and mathematics could be applied in the solution of factory problems.
Fredrick Winslow Taylor: Popularly known as the father of scientific management. He made a systematic study of management and evolved a set of orderly principles to replace the trial & error methods that were in vogue. He observed that workers at the ‘Midvale Steel Factory’ were not enthusiastic about work, instead of getting angry with them he sympathized. He joined ‘Bethleham Steel Factory’ where he first introduced scientific management, but there was strong opposition from his managers because of his uncompromising nature which led to his termination. After leaving he wrote a books ‘ Shop Management’ and Principles and Methods of Scientific Management were his pioneering works.
Principles Of Scientific Management Time & Motion Study: Observing motions os workers in the work place. Identifying movements carried out at work Elimination of unnecessary movements Observing the time required for each movement-Stop watch Developing shorter & fewer motions Standardising motion & time
Differential Payment: Differential piece rate system. Fixed the standard level of production, the ones who produced less received less. Group Harmony: Achieved through satisfying the needs of group members. Cooperation between workers and Management Management should understand workers Workers should understand organisational requirements. Standardization: in tools, instruments, working hours, working conditions, quality of work, (COP)? etc,,
Methods Study: Methodology and systematic movement of materials ensure fast movement of materials in the factory. Reduction on transportation time. Scientific selection and training: Scientific selection based on job analysis and using selection tests should be done. Providing training to all employees based on training needs, for organizational success. Seperation of planning from execution: Supervisors perform planning function whereas workers perform the execution.
Administrative Theory Henri Fayol in 1916 put his observations on paper under the french title ‘ Administration Industriella et Generale’ and was later translated into english under the title ‘ General and Industrial Adminisration’ This book contains two parts Theory of administration Discussion on training for administration.
Fayol the activities could be divided in 6 groups : Technical Commercial Financial Security Accounting & Managerial
Henri Fayol felt the first five were well known as a result devoted most of his book to the sixth. Classified the managerial group into 6 sub-groups Forecasting Planning Organising Coordinating Commanding & Controlling He stated the qualities required by managers were to be physical, menrtal, moral, educational and technical. He emphasized that as one goes higher up in the levels of management, administrative knowledge becomes more important than technical skills.
Traditional View: It was eariler believed that the main puropose of business was profit maximization, it was believed that profit earned by business was exclusively for its shareholders and if the profits were used in a social need, money is used in a place that it was not intended to be used for.
Mordern View: It is slowly being recognized that business is not an end but it is only means to an end, the end is ___.be is a worker, customer, or any that member of the society. It is believed that the establishment and development of a business are contributions of the society. Society allots land, provide facilities and develop and provide human resources. It is mainly because of the customers that a business functions. Thus business totally depends on the society and must do something in return for it.
