Fredrick Winslow Taylor is someone who is well-known as the “father” of scientific management. In the early 19 th century, he proposed four Principles of Scientific Management to pursue “one best way” to improve workers’ efficiency, studying their work processes closely, carefully, and systematically at the microlevel to speed up work. Scientific Management have a significant impact in many industries and McDonald’s is definitely one. For the instance of the more entangled assembling foundations and multinational organizations as McDonalds, it is vital to be imagined that the best success for its representatives which is joined by colossal thriving for the business must be brought if the organization's work is being done to the littlest consolidated use for the human exertion, for the nature assets, and the working expense. Almost all McDonald’s franchises in worldwide practice the same management styles. As in that, I have chosen McDonald’s Sunway Mentari which is located at Petaling Jaya for my research in scientific management. To start with, the first principle proposed by Taylor is to develop a science for each element of an individual’s work. According to this principle, in every task that the employee is doing, there should be clear guidelines, such as handbook manual and job prescription. This helps employees to have the righteous guide to perform the task assigned to them accordingly, step by step. Similarly, in McDonald's, they have built up a uniform strategy for every labourer to achieve their individual occupation whereby there is an arrangement of finish and itemized working systems to guarantee the food they convey to their customers has a similar quality of value in each establishment. For example, the arrangement of equipment and machineries are measured and computed to build productivity and are practically same in each outlet. Apparently, the most unmistakable demonstrative of utilizing a standard method is in the production line of

The Made-For-You (MFY) kitchen framework guarantees that food served is hot and crisp as they are made to arrange. The practice does not only stop at the production of goods but is also applied in the service line. McDonald’s enforces workers to follow a rigid script when they are talking or performing their service to a customer. Eventually, the number of mistakes are reduced. Secondly, scientifically selecting and then to train, teach, and develop workers. To be more precise, selecting first-class employees and match them to a job that best suited them and then, having a career development so that the workers can reach their full potential. Taylor believed that more work accomplished with fewer workers who are competent and talented, and it also contributes more profit to the companies. McDonald’s prioritise training as they’re aware of its significance to their business. There is deliberately organized training that can help in

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
