Q.”A science of administration would be a body of formal statements describing invariant relationships between measurable objects, units, or elements. Unquestionably administrative research has produced definite percepts and hypothesis that are applicable to concrete situations.” – (Fritz Morstein Marx)

1. “A science of administration would be a body of formal statements describing invariant relationships between measurable objects, units, or elements. Unquestionably administrative research has produced definite percepts and hypothesises that are applicable to concrete situations.” – (Fritz Morstein Marx)

Fritz Morstein Marx in this statement is focusing on the nature public administration.
Morstein Marx belongs to classical era in which the focus was on making public administration as a science.

The above statement throws light on how public administration would become a science. It is possible only if the study of public administration will be able to clearly delineate and define the relationship between the measurable objects units or elements. That is it should be able to delineate what different units should plan ,co-ordinate and take decisions.

The classical Era has been able to put public administration on the part of science. Scholars of public administration like Woodrow Wilson ,henri Fayol, luther gulick. Mooney and Reiley have put forward principles like POCCC and POSDCORB. These principles are applicable over the concrete situations.

The understanding of Morstein Marx is not holistic as his judgement about the dynamic aspect of public administration is myopic. Public administration can be truly scientific only if it will take into consideration not only the concrete elements but also try to delve deep in the human element while taking in consideration the impact of environment on an organisation.
