* How differential rate system is less motivational than bonus system? Answer: F.W.Taylor is the father of scientific management. His scientific management is based on differential rate system. The basic is increase productivity through differential rate system in scientific management. Henry Gantt a contributor to scientific management was an associate of Taylor. Later, working alone, he developed other techniques for improving worker output. It is called “Bonus System”. On e called the “Gantt Chart”. This bonus system is still used today. By differential rate system, the salary is fixed by the workers working capability. The more you produce, the more your salary will increase. But if any worker not want to increase his salary. Then it comes to the technique of Henry Gantt , “The bonus system”. In bonus system , the workers will get a bonus payment for extra work.

That’s why “Y” will get bonus payment. Combining “X” and “Y” the total production is 20. But by bonus system the production increase into 30. This is better than the differential rate system. So that’s why differential rate system is less motivational than bonus system. * Describe the principles of management given by Henry Fayol.
