1. Explain how the work of Fredrick Taylor and Frank and Lillian Gilbreth improved worker efficiency Fredrick Taylor developed scientific management and improved efficiency by urging employers put the right person on the job with the correct tools and equipment, have the worker follow precise instructions, and motivate workers with an economic incentive. Frank and Lillian Gilbreth studied the motions involved in work and improved work efficiency by attempting to eliminate inefficient and unnecessary hand-and-body motions. 2. Identify and define Fayol's 14 principles of management. Division of work: specialization increases output by making employees more efficient. Authority: managers must be able to give orders and authority gives them this right. Discipline: employees must obey and respect the rules that govern the organization. Unity of command: every employee should receive orders from only one superior.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
