Frederic Taylor is best known for defining the techniques of scientific management. Taylor was a manufacturing manger who eventually became a consultant and taught other managers how to apply the principles of scientific management. To discover the most efficient method of performing specific tasks, Taylor studied and measured ways different employees went about performing their tasks. He used time and motion studies. He advocated that once the best method was found for performing a particular task it should be recorded so that it could be taught to all employees performing the same task.

F W Taylor is termed as the father of scientific management and his prime contribution in the area of management is the founding of efficiency movement and also the start of the progressive era.

He is best known in the world of management for his study of time and motion. What he propounded was to break the job into many component parts and then measure each of them to the hundredth of a minute.

He believed that the management of that era was amateurish and he propounded that it should be taught as a separate discipline and to get the best result from the work force there should be partnership between qualified management and cooperative workforce. It was he who said that the trade unions were irrelevant as both the sides were important for each other's existence.
