George Ritzer has used the analogy of McDonalds (hence, “McDonaldisation”) to illustrate the rationalization of society and culture through 5 distinctive processes:

  1. Efficiency
  2. Calculability
  3. Predictability
  4. Irrationality
  5. Control.

This poster gives you a bit more information about each.
