In January 1927, the International Committee of Scientific Management, together with the International Labour Office and the Twentieth-Century Fund of Boston, founded in Geneva the International Institute of Scientific Management. The International Committee, acting as a federation of all the different national committees formed or in formation, collaborates with the International Institute of Geneva to further applications of scientific management throughout the world.
