Abstract

Dominated as it is by the powerful personality of Frederick W. Taylor, the history of scientific management thought has neglected important figures like Alexander Hamilton Church. Professor Jelinek shows that whereas Taylor's contribution was to move thinking down one "level of abstraction" to concrete shop operations, Church moved it up one level to construct a pattern of observations useful for management planning and evaluation.
