During the First World War, the necessity of increased production without increased human effort led to the practical investigation of the whole question by trained psychologists. This book, first published in 1924, deals with the methods they employed and with the results they obtained, and examines the wide-reaching effects which the application of these discoveries would have upon industrial organisation.
