Criticism of Taylor's Contribution
Scientific Management has contributed a lot to the science of management but it was criticized on the following grounds:
1) the consideration of the work 'Scientific' before 'Management' was criticized since what actually is meant by scientific management is nothing but an approach to management.
2) His principles were mostly confined to production management. He ignored other functional areas of management like finance, marketing', personnel and accounting.
3) His functional foremanship violates the principle of unity of command.
4) Trade unionists criticized Taylor's principles as the means to exploit workers due to the reason that wages of the workers were not increased in direct proportion to the increase in productivity.
