Book Description First Edition, 311pp royal octavo, a very good copy in original cloth, with numerous plates and illustrations, light wear, Manchester, Harlequin Press, 1952. * After graduating in psychology at Edinburgh University in 1927 - where she also took a social sciences diploma - Anne Shaw went to the USA and continued her studies at Bryn Mawr University, Pennsylvania. She later worked as a research assistant at the Gilbreth Incorporated Management Consultants, Montclair, New Jersey - where scientific motion-study originated. In 1930 Anne Shaw returned to Britain where she became the chief motion-study investigator at Metropolitan-Vickers Electrical Co. Ltd, Manchester, from 1930-1945. She organised motion training study courses for members of the Associated Electrical Industries Group, the first of its kind in Britain. In 1942 Anne Shaw was appointed a member of the Production Efficiency Board of the Ministry of Aircraft Production. In this capacity she organised motion-study training courses for members of the aircraft industry, and developed an organisation of Personnel Management Advisors for factories working for the Ministry. In 1945 she founded her own management consultancy called the Anne Shaw Organisation Limited; it specialised in the application of motion-study in industry and commerce. Anne Shaw published An Introduction to the Theory and Practice of Motion Study, 1945 (second edition 1953) and The Purpose and Practice of Motion Study, 1952. She read numerous papers to learned and professional societies, including International Management Conferences, the British Association, the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, The British Psychological Society and many others. She was a member of the National Council on Education for Industry and Commerce, served as the President of the Institute of Personnel Management (1949-51) and as a member of the Council of the British Institute of Management. She was the first foreigner to be awarded the Gilbreth Medal by the American Society for the Advancement of Management. She was awarded the honour of Commander of the British Empire for her services to industry in 1954. "Frank Gilbreth. worked in close collaboration with his wife, Lillian, a trained psychologist, and after his early death in 1924 she carried on their work with great distinction, especially as a teacher. One of her most distinguished former pupils is Miss Anne G. Shaw, a pioneer of work study in Britain." -Thickett (M.) The Impact of Frank Bunker Gilbreth, Reading, Scientific Business, 1965.
