Increasingly, the demise of many businesses and organizations is being blamed on current Western management practice which can be traced back to the 19th century and Frederick Taylor's theory of scientific management. Although W. Edwards Deming proposed a more modern philosophy of management, the Western world continued to practice Taylor's philosophy, now known as neo-Taylorism. This volume explores neo-Taylorism (its origins and what its beliefs are), Deming's philosophy (his system of profound knowledge and his 14 points), and suggests how Deming's philosophy could be an antidote to today's managerial ineffectiveness. The text aims to show organization and technical managers how to change using Deming's principles in order to improve quality in delivered services and products as well as employee satisfaction. It also analyzes the flaws of Taylorism and neo-Taylorism in comparison with Deming's philosophy.
