  34. History of Management • Knowledge is Power! • Where you’re going, where you’ve been! • Management is relatively a modern concept…

  35. The Industrial Revolution • Began in the United States in 1860 • Just before the Civil War • Period during which a country develops an industrial economy • Before the Industrial Revolution, economy based on agriculture • By the late 1800s, economy depended on industries such as oil, steel, railroads, and manufactured goods

  36. Causes of the Industrial Revolution • Many people left their farms to work in factories • Professional managers supervised their work • Changes in technology, communication, and transportation • Telegraph and cable lines extended across the U.S. after the Civil War • Railroad lines, canals, roads, steamships

  37. Cornelius Vanderbilt(steamships & railroads) James B. Duke (tobacco) John D. Rockefeller (Oil) Andrew Carnegie (steel) J. P. Morgan (banking) Captains of Industry • Powerful businesspeople who created enormous business empires dominated and shaped the U.S. economy

  38. Creation of Monopolies • The captains of industry often pursued profit and self-interest above all else • Drove competitors out of business • Created giant companies that maintained monopolies in their industries • Monopoly • Occurs when one party maintains total control over a type of industry • Trust: giant industrial monopoly • By 1879, Rockefeller controlled >90% of the country’s refining capacity and pipelines

  39. The Break-Up of Trusts • People became worried about the concentration of wealth in the hands of a only a few • In response, the government began regulating business Cornelius Vanderbilt

  40. The Break-Up of Trusts • The Interstate Commerce Act, 1887 • The railroads gave rebates to some customers but not others • This act forced railroads to publish their rates and forbade them to change rates without notifying the public • Established the Interstate Commerce Commission (ICC) to supervise the railroads

  41. The Break-Up of Trusts • The Sherman Act, 1890 • Made it illegal for companies to create monopolies • Intended to restore competition • Example • Standard Oil Company was broken into smaller companies so that other oil companies could compete with the former giant • John D. Rockefeller

  42. New Challenges for Management • When most Americans worked on farms, sophisticated management techniques were not necessary • By the end of the 19th century, giant companies employed thousands of people and distributed products all over the country • Workers performed tasks that needed to be coordinated • These changes demanded new ideas about how to manage people working in large corporations

  43. Frederick W. Taylor and Scientific Management • Father of Scientific Management • Wanted to find ways to motivate workers to work harder • To increase efficiency, he tried to figure “one best way” to perform a particular task • Used a stopwatch to determine which work method was most efficient • These time and motion studies lead to scientific management principles

  44. Frederick W. Taylor and Scientific Management • Scientific management seeks to increase productivity and make work easier by carefully studying work procedures and determining the best methods for performing particular tasks

  45. Frederick W. Taylor and Scientific Management Henry Ford followed Taylor’s work • Created the assembly line • Mass production lowered costs • Could price car low enough to attract more customers • Every part was counted, production was timed • Paid a daily wage of $5 when the average was $2.50 • This allowed workers to become customers • Low morale & injuries resulted • Repetition caused boredom • High turnover

  46. Frederick W. Taylor and Scientific Management • Companies today continue to use the principles of scientific management • Marriott Corporation • Customer satisfaction

  47. The Hawthorne Studies of Productivity • In the roaring 20s--Researchers began to look at the relationship between working conditions and productivity • Series of experiments at the Hawthorne plant of Western Electric in Cicero, IL • Lowered the lighting and expected to see productivity to fall • What happened? • Productivity increased…Why?

  48. The Hawthorne Studies of Productivity • Baffled by results, a team of psychologists from Harvard University were called upon • Over five years, hundreds of experiments were conducted at the plant • Different wage payments • Rest periods • Work hours • Other variables • What were the results? • Same: Productivity increased!!

  49. The Hawthorne Studies of Productivity • Researchers concluded that productivity rose because workers worked harder when they received attention • Hawthorne effect • Change of any kind increases productivity • Factors other than the physical environment affected worker productivity • Psychological and social conditions, effective supervision

  50. The Hawthorne Studies of Productivity • Informal group pressures • Teaming tends to drive everyone not to let the others on the team down…. • Individual recognition • Highlighting a worker contribution tends to motivate them to work harder • Participation in decision-making • When workers are part of the process they work harder
