8 Human Relations Approach Started with a series of studies conducted at the Hawthorne Plant of Western Electric. Located near Chicago. Conducted by Elton Mayo and his associates. 1927-1933.
9 Hawthorne Studies Relay Assembly Test Room Second Relay Assembly Group Mica-Splitting Group The typewriting Group Bank Wiring Observation Room –21126 employees interviewed –What employees liked and disliked about their work
10 Hawthorne Studies Both control and experimental groups improved when studied and interviewed Human-social element operated in the workplace. –Group norms developed In any different or experimental undertaking – improvement may take place Called “The Hawthorne Effect”
11 Hawthorne Studies These studies indicated that the understanding of human behavior, especially group behavior, from the perspective of management was firmly established.
12 Contributors-human Relations Approach Kurt Lewin: –Field theory and group dynamics. –Democratic and authoritarian groups. Carl Rogers: –Internal frame reference of the individual.

20 Douglas McGregor Theories of management developed by Douglas McGregor depicting two extreme positions representing the options available for the management of people. Theory X describes workers who are disinterested in work and need manager control through incentives and punishments to be motivated.
21 Douglas McGregor Theory Y is the management view that workers are self directed, intrinsically motivated, and want to take the responsibility for work and productivity. Self-actualization: A term used by Maslow for the effort of the individual to fulfill his or her potential. Theory Z: Is there one and what is it?
