Neoclassical Theory (6)
The Hawthorne experiment consists of four parts. These parts are briefly described below:
1. Illumination Experiment: This experiment was conducted to establish relationship between output and illumination. When the intensity of light was increased, the output also increased. The output showed an upward trend even-when the illumination was gradually brought down to the normal level. Therefore, it was concluded that there is no consistent relationship between output of workers and illumination in the factory. There must be some other factor
which affected productivity.
