("The term "scientific management," while including broadly any form of management in any undertaking which relies upon the technique of science in coming to its decisions, is more commonly understood to apply to those developments in the management of individual enterprises which were originally based on the work of F. W. Taylor. No later efforts at definition can diminish the dignity attached to Taylor's name as the pioneer to apply scientific techniques to the solution of management problems." Urwick, L. 1929. HBR (January): 174).

"Rationalization may be defined, therefore, either as an attitude or as a process. As an attitude it implies the belief that a more rational control of world economic life through the application of scientific method is possible and desirable and that our economic thinking should be modified to this extent. As a process it involves application of the methods and standards of science to all problems, whatever their scale, which arise in the organization and conduct of production and distribution."
