principles of McDonaldization


Journal 2 Pages

You have now reviewed the five principles of McDonaldization:
  1. Efficiency
  2. Calculability
  3. Predictability
  4. Control; and
  5. Irrationality of rationality.

You have also examined how they affect your life.


In this fourth and final journal entry, take a synthetic look at the issue, to assess the impact of McDonaldization in your life.

  • First, think about how much McDonaldization you think is present in your life, providing some examples.
  • Then, consider whether you would like this to change, by reflecting on the positive and negative consequences of McDonaldization for you, including a consideration of our core value of community. You may want to focus on only one or two changes.
  • Finally, think about how you might go about implementing such change(s), also thinking how that might relate to the core value of community.
