The Efficiency Movement was a movement during the Progressive Era of American History (1890's - 1930's) that sought to place emphasis on the use of scientific research and economic principles of efficiency and utility maximization to ensure that government and industry worked to their full potential. One of its prime advocates was Frederick Winslow Taylor, a pioneer of scientific management and one of the first to develop modern ideas about worker productivity.
