100 years of Henri Fayol

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


It is the 100th anniversary of the publication by French mining engineer and management author Henri Fayol (1841-1925) of his essential text Administration Industrielle et Générale. The text, published first in 1916 in a professional journal and one year later as book, became one of the most important contributions to the development of modern management theory. Because of the book, Fayol is widely acknowledged as a founder of modern management. The aim of the paper is to mark the 100th anniversary of Henri Fayol's publication of Administration Industrielle et Générale and, by extension, to answer the question whether Henri Fayol's contributions and thoughts are still relevant in contemporary management theory.
