К истокам профессии. Часть первая: Проблемы периодизации истории менеджмента
Knowing of the history of profession is the basis of career self-identifi cation. The authors off er a series of research devoted to the study of the origin and evolution of such concepts as administration, management and HR-management. The fi rst part will study the problem of periodization of the history of management as a science, practices and phenomenon. The following parts of the work draw special attention to the evolution of HR-manager as a profession. The educational and scientific literature on the history of management off ers diff erent variants of periodization. Each scientist has his/her own views not only on the criteria of periodization or on the point of origin but on the methodology of periodization in general. In this paper the authors attempted to compare diff erent approaches and identify key problem areas in the process of periodization of the evolution of management theory and practice.
