There are a number of management theories to consider when discussing management. Some of the authors of these theories include: Frederick W. Taylor, Frank and Lillian Gilbreth, Max Weber, William H. Leffingwell, Henri Fayol, Mary Follett, Elton Mayo, Abraham Maslow, Douglas McGregor, Frederick Herzberg, Peter F. Drucker, W. Edwards Deming, and William Ouchi.
Please consider which of the theories is the most interesting to you, and why.
Using the Internet, conduct an online search of the theory you chose and identify at least two articles on the subject.
Write a one and a half (1.5) to two (2) page memo to me identifying the theory you prefer and why. Then identify five things you learned from the articles that you did not know before.
The headings for your memo should be:
- Theorist/Theory (identify your theorist and theory, give a brief description of your theorist/theory, and why you chose this particular theorist/theory.)
- Things I Learned (identify in 5 separate paragraphs; one paragraph for each of the five things you learned from your Internet search).
Copy and Paste the website(s) URLs one blank line below the last paragraph of your memo.
