This chapter empirically examines how management differentiated itself from engineering, and how the notion of ‘system’ was ‘translated’ from the technical field to become a dominant paradigm in the world of organizations. It focuses on the logic and rhetoric employed by the early systematizers and the manner in which they justified the introduction of systems to the management of organizations.
