This chapter focuses on the opposition to ‘management systems’; on the objection of manufacturers, engineers, and employee representatives. It argues that management systems were not promoted by capitalists or their representatives, but rather by a group of engineers — a new class of salaried technocrats — wishing to carve out their own domain within industrial organizations.

Keywords:   management systems, engineers, technocrats, manufacturers, employee representatives, industrial organizations
