Abstract

Scientific management has traditionally been closely associated with time and motion studies, payment incentives schemes and industrial efficiency. The following discussion reconsiders this portrayal by arguing that the combined effect of F.W. Taylor's philosophy, principles and methods made his system sufficiently flexible to infuse non-industrial spehres. Accordingly, scientific management's impact is evaluated by reference to the educational reforms introduced in both the USA and Australia in the first two decades of the twentieth century.
