Principle: HARMONY, NOT DISCORD.

In every organization there are two groups of people i.e. “workers’ and ‘management’ and both always feel dissatisfied with each other. Workers always feel that they are overburdened and are underpaid. Management always feels that workers are good for nothing and are paid unnecessarily.


In this principle, Taylor insisted that both the groups should work together with a positive attitude towards each other and with mutual cooperation. They must share the ‘Give and Take’ relationship while working with each other for the prosperity of the organization as well as for their own betterment.
Taylor emphasized on Mental Revolution which means a change of attitude of both groups towards each other. Both groups should develop a positive attitude for each other so that a cordial relationship can be developed between them.
Taylor states that the prosperity of the organization depends on both Workers and Management, and thus both should work with each other in harmony and avoid discord. Management should take care of the workers in a better manner by providing them better working environment, and workers should take care of the management by giving their best towards the achievement of the organizational goals. Both groups should feel and work together as a family with one goal and in one direction, so that each activity can be done in a better manner and the goals of the organization can be easily achieved.
Positive impacts of this principle:
1.   Change of attitude of both groups towards each other.
2.   A cordial relationship can be developed between workers and management.
3.   Goals of the organization can be easily achieved.
4.   Each activity can be done in a better manner.
5.   Development of team spirit.
6.   High morale of employees.

7.   Cooperation and coordination in the organization.

  1. As per this principle, such an atmosphere should be created in the organisation that labour (the major factor of production) and management consider each other indispensable.

    Taylor has referred to such a situation as a ‘Mental Revolution’. Taylor firmly believed that the occurrence of a mental revolution would end all conflicts between the two parties and would be beneficial to both of them.
