XX century - a time of the origin and evolution of management science , or management science in the technical and technological, biological and social systems. http://viagraovernightdelivery.biz The need to solve practical problems , especially in the industrial sector , has led to their scientific study , the search for and use of elective forms and methods of management, the allocation of the profession of the head ( the manager) in a special kind of activity that requires appropriate knowledge , skills and abilities . Attempts to systematize management experience were in the first half of the XIX century in England. The first kind of textbook management - a book of English mathematics professor , engineer and businessman Charles Babbage's "Economy of machinery and production" ( 1832 ) . The founder of the science of social control is considered to be an American engineer and researcher F. Taylor ( 1856-1915 ) . His proposed system of organization of labor and management relations has caused an "organizational revolution" in the field of production and management. For the first time his views on management , he outlined in his article " The system of piece-wise rates " ( 1895 ) . They were then expanded in his book " The guild- management" ( 1903 ) and developed in the " Principles of Scientific Management " ( 1911 ) . Basics of F. Taylor : - The ability to analyze the work , to study the sequence of its implementation; - The selection of the workers (employees ) to perform this type of work; - Education and training of workers ; - Cooperation management and workers . An important feature of the system - its practical implementation with the appropriate tools , or "technique system. "
