The industrial revolution was between the period of the late 1700s and the early 1800s. This revolution changed the structure of organizations and the types of jobs available at the time. It began in Great Britain and spread to all nations of the world.
The industrial revolution saw the invention of different things like the telephone, the light bulb, steam engine, the sewing machine, and the X-ray. Industries had more jobs for people and most people left agricultural work to migrate to cities. The production of goods also became more effective and businesses made more profit.
Skilled workers began to work from the comfort of their homes instead of factories with the aid of new machines. Low paid workers also began to replace highly skilled workers as the machines made their work unnecessary.
Mangers had to learn how to work in synergy with all the workers in their organization. It was also essential to learn delegation of duties. With increased competition and the rise of new organizations, businesses had to improve their customer relations to keep customers.
