Hawthorn Studies are very famous for having suggested a new paradigm in social sciences. However, there is another story; many scholars have criticized that the studies are full of methodological problems and lack scientific evidences supporting the popular interpretation of the results. It is very surprising that the criticism has rarely been mentioned in introductory textbooks of I-O Psychology and Organizational Behavior. This study focuses on the criticism for Hawthorn Studies, especially in terms of methodological problems and the interpretation of research results. I argue that teaching the criticism help students learn much more balanced perspectives to management.
