Modern management came into being on the basis of these principles.
It arose as theoretical construct as systematic practice, moreover, in
the very period during which the transformation of labor form processes
based on skill to processes based upon science was attaining its most rapid
tempo. Its role was to render conscious and systematic, the formerly
unconscious tendency of capitalist production. It was to ensure that
as craft decline, the worker would sink to the level of general and undifferentiated
labor power, adaptable to a large range of simple tasks, while as science
grew, it would be concentrated in the hands of management (83).
