There are many theories on management. Taylor's Classical Theory comprising Scientific Management, Fayol's Administrative Management and Weber's Bureaucratic Organization.
Frederick Winslow Taylor (1856 ? 1915, Philadelphia) is known as the Father of Scientific Management and is considered as one of the first most successful Management Consultants. He became famous for his ?Time and Motion Study' and the ?Piece Rate' system which he introduced.
Taylor imposed the principles of scientific management, and the fact-finding approach put forward and largely adopted was a replacement for what had been the old rule of thumb.
