Transcript of Management Science/Quantitative School of Thought

The management science approach stresses the use of quantitative techniques and methods in decision making.

According to the theorists who belong to this school of thought, management simply makes a series of decision. Management Science/
Quantitative School of Thought This is also called quantitative school of thought mainly because of the wide variety of quantitative tools or applications used for decision making. The quantitative approach was initiated during the 1940’s, during World War II.

Mathematicians, physicists, and other scientists joined together to solve military problems. So basically the quantitative school of management is a result of the research conducted during World War II.
