This book, first published in 1988, reassesses the data on Church – accountant, manager and industrial engineer – and stresses the theoretical impact of his ideas upon contemporary business structures as well as his practical desire to implement concepts to better the working man’s day. The past impact of engineers and engineering concepts on accounting and management has previously been overlooked, and this book corrects this. The discussion herein may inspire a much-needed dialogue among engineers, accountants and managers.
