Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Fayolism was a theory of management that analyzed and synthesized the role of management in organizations, developed around 1900 by the French management theorist Henri Fayol (1841-1925). Fayol believed management theories could be developed, then taught (to students of Grandes coles). His theories were published in a monograph titled General and Industrial Management (1916). In doing so, he stated," ...starting a general discussion- that is what I am trying to do by publishing this survey, and I hope that a theory will emanate from it." His theories and ideas were ideally a result of his environment; that of a post revolutionized France in which a republic bourgeois was emerging. A bourgeois himself, he believed in the controlling of workers in order to achieve a greater productivity over all other managerial considerations. However, through reading General and Industrial Management, it is apparent that Fayol advocated a flexible approach to management, one which he believed could be applied to any circumstance whether in the home, the workplace, or within the state.show more
