The article defines the main stages of management’s automation development issues and presents their periodization. The works of the classics of modern management as Peter F. Drucker, Henry Ford, and other authors is critically comprehended on the subject of their opinion about the management’s automation process. Based on the analysis, it was concluded that the classics were generally positive about automation and computerization of management. The study aims to conduct a theoretical analysis of classical works in the field of management for their attitude to the automation of the management process. The research methods are the method of theoretical analysis and the method of induction. However, taking into account the specifics of modern automation aimed at total algorithmization (computerization) of all business and technological processes without exception, such a doctrine is being questioned by the authors. According to the authors, total automation is not advisable especially in conditions of creative work or flexible organization of the production process. The reason for this is the artificial limitation of the creative management decisions by algorithm standards. An opinion is expressed about the need to justify the criteria for a balance between a creative and a standardized (algorithmized) component in making a managerial decision.
