Neo-Taylorism in Educational Administration?
Gronn, Peter C.
Educational Administration Quarterly, v18 n4 p17-35 Fall 1982
Reviews eight recent observational studies of school administrators and criticizes the studies' use of "time and motion" assumptions drawn from Frederick Winslow Taylor's ideas. Outlines an alternate approach based on "thick" description of administrators' work, including their talk, as exemplified in James Boswell's biography of Samuel Johnson. (Author/RW)
