In this piece, Krupskaya looks at Frederick Taylor’s principles of 
scientific management and shows how they could be applied to the Soviet 
government. The early “collegiality”-based Soviet State was leading to 
inefficiencies all around, which produced a stagnant and unresponsive 
bureaucracy. Krupskaya believed that scientifically-driven organization 
would alleviate these organizational problems, and at the same time 
raise everyone’s consciousness of the work they were doing. She provided 
several prescriptions for the organization of production to achieve 
these goals, as well as a rationale for them.
