How much do you know about past and current management trends

Let’s find out! Your task, should you choose to accept it, is to match each management trend with the date and person it’s most associated with.

For example, number 1, Scientific Management, was kicked off in 1911 by Frederick Winslow Taylor, so on you’d write 1–a on a piece of paper. Who do you associate Servant leadership with? Write the letter of that date and person beside number 2. And so on.

Good luck. Answers next week.
