Publication Date: 2017-07-07
Number of pages: 210
As part of a 1950s study dealing with various phases of the impact of mass production on human behaviour, this volume, originally published in 1956 and now a classic of its time examines the technological environment and the foreman within management, from the foreman's point of view. The book presents case-history material, but behind this presentation and controlling it are broad concepts, one of the most important of which is that of a technological work environment. The book relates its study of a segment in American industry to the borader challenges of human relations to work in the modern world.
