Taylorism initiated certain aspects and features of production that were originally not acknowledged at the time. Moreover, by scrutinizing workers, he established that workers must be allowed breaks throughout their day, so that the employee has moment to recuperate from exhaustion from the works day.
Taylorism brought criticism as well. Its application has two inherent difficult. Firstly, it ignores individual differences. The most efficient way of working for one person may be inefficient for another. Moreover, it disregards the issue of economic advantage of workers and management are hardly ever identical, in order that mutually the measurement processes and the retraining required by Taylor’s methods would regularly be disliked and often times sabotaged by the workforce. (Russell, 2011)
Taylorism is classified as a prominent sector of the work force that is pressed to its commonsensical extreme, with a resulting decrease in the skill set of the worker and dehumanization of the workplace.
Fordism suffered kinds of limits which lead to decline of Fordism. For instance, it was to be undone by a limit to mass consumption. Productive improvements had a limit with technology involved. Workers are alienated with little interest in their work, beyond the pay pocket at the end of the week. Wages were not everything to all workers. The most important issue is de-skilling, which means the removal of skills from work by the application of new machinery and new techniques which simplify tasks. (David, 2011)
