Taylor’s 4 principles
Study the way workers perform their tasks, gather all informational job knowledge that workers possess and experiment
Codify the new methods of performing tasks into written rules and standard operating procedures.
Carefully select workers who possess skills and abilities that match the needs of the task, and train them to perform the task
Establish a fair or acceptable level of performance for a task and then develop a pay system that provides a reward for performance above the acceptable level.
