An early account of scientific management as applied to women’s work with comment by Frederick W.... The core of this paper is a reproduction of a study published in 1911 by Clark and Wyatt entitled "Scientific management as applied to women's work". The paper is significant because it provides a very early eyewitness "warts-and-all" account of scientific management as applied to women's labor. It is also of interest because Frederick Taylor both read the work and corresponded with one of the authors. Hence it provides a rare insight into Taylor's ideas regarding gender relations and the place of women in industry. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Management History (Archive) Emerald Publishing

Abstract

The core of this paper is a reproduction of a study published in 1911 by Clark and Wyatt entitled "Scientific management as applied to women's work". The paper is significant because it provides a very early eyewitness "warts-and-all" account of scientific management as applied to women's labor. It is also of interest because Frederick Taylor both read the work and corresponded with one of the authors. Hence it provides a rare insight into Taylor's ideas regarding gender relations and the place of women in industry.
