This theory would also open the door in allowing the management ways of better measuring the workers task mix in efforts to raise said workers productivity and efficiency. Quality management came into play around the late 70s and came to light as employees and the industry began seeing the negative effects of Japans superior quality products were having on competitiveness. Deming taught Japan that quality must be number one goal of the entire organization. A systems approach was derived implying organizations are systems and all things are all interrelated and most likely not related to one individual. In my opinion, it is the culmination of all three of these theories, scientific, behavioral, and management science that has evolved the ways in which management is perceived in the management society today. The techniques taken from each of the theories has given managers of todays world the ability to take more precise information and data on specific task and make much more informed and effective and quality decisions. With all decisions, management must take into account the human element, exploiting the positive and not punishing the negative. A good manager must identify positives, work towards improvement and allow the human side to perform and succeed. In our organization I use Taylors approach quite often. Standardization and efficiency are the two that stood out. In a production environment I am measured by units per labor hours. If the work is not standardized my units per labor hours go way down while decreasing my efficiency. If my team is not efficient my cost are increasing, which has a direct impact on my total cost per box. An organization cannot afford to have people standing around while they are on the clock. If this should happen they will not be in operation too long.
