Abstract

Scientific Management and Stakhanovism were both popular in the Soviet Union during the 1920s and 1930s as means for increasing productivity and industrial growth. A first‐cut effort at comparing and contrasting these two historically important movements is presented as one means for appreciating the origins of Soviet attitudes towards work.
