Who Is Frederick Winslow Taylor? - Deepstash

Who Is Frederick Winslow Taylor?

Taylor was a high achiever. He was accepted to Harvard and had plans to become a lawyer just like his father. But then, he started having sharp headaches was later diagnosed with the eye condition of Astigmatism.

So, by a weird quirk of fate, Taylor went to the shop floor as an apprentice machinist rather than Harvard to become a lawyer.

As a machinist, he noticed that the workmen were not working nearly as hard as they could. So he started to experiment with how worker productivity could be improved.
