And keep in mind that the 'business' here can be a company, a non-profit organization, a company, or even a personal project.There are methods that become disposable and obsolete over time. But in the case of the principles of scientific management you will realize that their pillars are still increasingly valid, needing only to contextualize for the technologies currently used, but the need to treat management more and more as science continues.Several companies fail before completing their second year. Many people try to put their ideas into practice in an amateur way and end up frustrated. In this book, which is a classic of administration, you can observe important concepts such as:1. Leadership2. Productivity3. Division of labour4. Study and times and movements5. Creation of standardized operating procedures6. Need for training and training7.
