What are the Objectives of Scientific Management

The objectives of scientific management are:

  • To assess industrial and market tendencies and to regularize continuous operation. 
  • To earn a larger profit from a given expenditure on man and materials by minimizing waste work and waste movements. 
  • To provide healthy and safe working environment. 
  • To build character through proper work. 
  • To develop self-realization and self-satisfaction among workers thereby improving their morale. 
  • To give better opportunity for individual through scientific methods of working. 
  • To ensure a happier and social life for workers.
  • To promote justice among the workers by treating them equal. 
  • To perform planned and balanced operations.
The time and motion study of scientific management had created awareness of using the right tools and minimizing waste movements while performing a work. Further, the scientific management also insisted the scientific selection of workers and made the management to realize the training needs to do a job. The scientific management suggested the work design, that is, one best way of doing a job. The scientific management had developed a rational approach to solve the problems of an organization and contributed to the professionalization of management.
