Summary
"The definitive biography of the life and work of Elton Mayo (1880-1949) is the first full, accurate account of the activities and intimate life of one of Australia and America's pioneering social scientists. Mayo, who established the scientific study of organizational behavior, was highly influential in American social science and business management theory, following his work at the Harvard Business School and the Western Electric Company." "Still the subject of vigorous debate, Mayo's ideas spanned several disciplines - psychology, sociology, philosophy, and business management. Mayo developed the field of industrial psychology by applying the results of scientific research to the problems of work in order to improve the life of industrial workers and managers and to encourage collaboration between administrators and their subordinates. Richard C. S. Trahair's biography traces the origins of Mayo's ideas in order to help clarify aspects of the debate."--BOOK JACKET.
