The decades that followed the end of World War II witnessed in Portugal the affirmation of scientific management's study and development. Many points of view appeared and are stated in journals and books as well as on debates that took place at the "Assembleia Nacional" and at the "Camara Corporativa". Based on the journals of these sessions between 1945 and 1974 including references to the topic, this article aims to analyse how the problems related to scientific management were understood in these two organisms. Examining the arguments and visions in presence, we aim to understand the logic behind the application of these principles in Portugal.
