Origin Of The Principles Of Management


Henri Fayol (1841-1925) was a French management theorist whose theories in management and organization of labor were widely influential in the beginning of 20th century. 

He was a mining engineer who worked for a French mining company Commentry-Fourchamb oult-Decazeville , first as an engineer. 

Then he moved into general management and became Managing Director from 1888 to 1918. 

During his tenure as Managing Director he wrote various articles on 'administration' and in 1916 the Bulletin de la Société de l' Industrie Minérale, printed his "Administration, Industrielle et Générale – Prévoyance, Organisation, Commandement, Coordination, Contrôle". 

In 1949 the first English translation appeared: `General and Industrial Management' by Constance Storrs.
