Taylor’s 4 Principles of Scientific Management

1
Replace rule-of-thumb work methods with methods based on a scientific study of the tasks
2
Scientifically select, and develop each trainers rather than passively leaving them to train themselves
3
Cooperate with the workers to ensure that the scientifically developed methods are being followed
4
Divide work nearly equally between managers and workers, so that the managers apply scientific management principles to planning the work and the workers actually perform the tasks
