Scientific Management is 100 Years Old - Centenary of Scientific Management

"Scientific management: 100 years old; Poised for the next century" was published in SAM Advanced Management Journal / Spring Issue, 1996. Michael Freeman is the author.

According to Taylor, scientific management's birthplace is his paper "A Piece-Rate System," read by him in 1895. It being a step toward partial solution of the labor problem, Taylor fixed age of scientific management as  17 years in 1912.

But Taylor's definitive work, The Principles of Scientific Management was  first published in 1911. Hence in 2011, scientific management completes its 100 years and 1910-11 is the centenary year of scientific management.
