The Armour Engineer, Vol. 9

Excerpt from The Armour Engineer, Vol. 9: The Quarterly Technical Publication of the Student Body of Armour Institute of Technology, Chicago, Illinois, November, 1916 This is a period in Industry when there are preponderant advantages in large organizations. At the same time there is also a feeling among a certain class of men, particularly young men preparing for the race and older men who have not found themselves. that organization and the individual are inimical. It is not questioned that there is outward evidence, indeed too much of it, to fortify a dissatisfied mind in this impression, especially when a large view is taken (1) of the rapid rise of these big companies, (2) the fact that they are perforce made up of MEN, and (3) that there are only too often five-thousand-dollar men in ten-thousand-dollar places with all the consequent narrow vision, selfishness and straining for result. It may be useful therefore at times to get into the mountains to clarify the vision and to see the large outlines of things in their right perspective. When one analyzes this word - organization - it is found to be made up primarily of "organ" which refers to the individual - a function or instrument peculiarly fitted for a certain work or use. And a practical study of this subject will lend a strange emphasis in all its aspects upon this fundamental - The Individual. Organizing is the art and science of fitting organs each particularly meant for certain functions into a sympathetic and co-ordinated force for a definite larger purpose with a proper provision for its constant renewal.
