Description

The Hawthorne Experiments are among the most well-known experi-ments ever conducted in the field of management and social research. The data from the experiments have been reinterpreted and mis-interpreted and the conclusions have been both lauded and criticized. We interviewed three of the original participants in the experiments in order to clarify some of the events and to answer many of our questions concerning the methodology and conclusions of the experi-ments. Although a half century has passed since the research was performed, Theresa Layman, Wanda Blazejak, and Donald Chipman have vivid memories and provided us with valuable insights about the Hawthorne Experiments.
