Measurement of Responsibility:A study of Work, Payment and Individual Capacity presents the most fundamental approach to the stresses that create industrial unrest-the absence of any objective method of assessing the responsibility carried by individuals.

The search for an objective measure of work load has been going on for many years. It is especially important to develop such a measure in the administrative and executive realm, although the frequency of union grievances on the topic indicates that it is far from resolution on the factory floor.

In this little book Elliott Jaques has developed a stimulating, novel, and important approach to the problem of measuring work.
