ORGANIZATIONAL HISTORY

The Anglo-American Council on Productivity was formed in the Autumn of 1948 on the initiative of Sir Stafford Cripps, the Chancellor of the Exchequer in Eritian, and Mr. Paul Hoffman, the Economic Cooperation Administrator in the U.S.A.
It is composed of representatives of management and labor both in the United Kingdom and in the United States of America. In the United Kingdom section the constituent bodies are the Federation of British Industries, the British Employers' Confederation and the Trades Union Congress.
The purpose of the Council was to promote economic well-being by a free exchange of knowledge in the realm of industrial organisation, method and technique and thereby to assist British industry to raise the level of its productivity.
The principal means adopted to achieve this end was to send to America industrial Teams, the members of which were drawn in equal numbers from the supervisory, the technical, and the workshop levels. The business of the Teams was to study American production methods, to report their observations and findings and to make recommendations.
Each Team went out as an independent body and was solely responsible for its report. Team visits were completed in 1952. The work of following up on the reports was transferred to the British Productivity Council, and the Anglo-American Council was dissolved as of June 30, 1952.
