Стр. 48 - I have steadily endeavoured to keep my mind free so as to give up any hypothesis, however much beloved (and I cannot resist forming one on every subject), as soon as facts are shown to be opposed to it.
Стр. 150 - It seems to me that the first test of business administration, of industrial organization, should be whether you have a business with all its parts so coordinated, so moving together in their closely knit and adjusting activities, so linking, interlocking, interrelating, that they make a working unit, that is, not a congeries of separate pieces but what I have called a functional whole or integrative unity.
Стр. 216 - Administration is the function in industry concerned in the determination of the corporate policy, the coordination of finance, production and distribution, the settlement of the compass of the organization, and the ultimate control of the executive.
Стр. 139 - My solution is to depersonalize the giving of orders, to unite all concerned in a study of the situation, to discover the law of the situation and obey that.6 Until we do this I do not think we shall have the most successful business administration.
Стр. 305 - Is it the Manager of the Works," he asked, "or is it the President? But these are responsible to the Directors. Is it then the Directors? But they are responsible to the people. Is it then the people?" I tried to find out what he meant by the people, but he was rather vague about that.

Стр. 121 - ... distinguish declared motive from real motive, alleged cause from real cause, and to remember that sometimes the underlying motive is deliberately concealed and that sometimes it exists unconsciously. The first rule, then, for obtaining integration is to put your cards on the table, face the real issue, uncover the conflict,, bring the whole thing into the open. One of the most important reasons for bringing the desires of each side to a place where they can be clearly examined and valued is that...
Стр. 130 - Open-mindedness is the whole thing, isn't it?" No, it isn't; it needs just as great a respect for your own view as for that of others, and a firm upholding of it until you are convinced. Mushy people are no more good at this than stubborn people. As an indirect summing up of this discussion, I should like to emphasize our responsibility for integration.
Стр. 140 - I recognize it as such, accept it, even although it may reverse some "order" I have given. If those in supervisory positions should depersonalize orders, then there would be no overbearing authority on the one hand, nor on the other that dangerous laissez-aller which comes from the fear of exercising authority. Of course we should exercise authority, but always the authority of the situation. I do not say that we have found the way to a frictionless existence, far from it, but we now understand the...
Стр. 280 - If we get only compromise, the conflict will come up again and again in some other form, for in compromise we give up part of our desire, and because we shall not be content to rest there, sometime we shall try to get the whole of our desire.
