Abstract/Notes This chapter covers the career of Elton Mayo and the impact of the Hawthorne
studies upon the field of management. The first section of the chapter discusses
the Mayo’s contribution to the management literature. This section argues that
Mayo’s best elements – his empathy and charisma – have not survived, but he
leads a great legacy as a scholar for his influence on the field. The second section
of the chapter covers the role of the Great Depression and World War II on
Mayo’s work. The third section compares Mayo’s work to his major competitors
– Whiting Williams and Henry S. Dennison. The final section compares that
Taylor to Mayo, arguing that that they were complements rather than competitors
