Rational management During the early twentieth century, managerial work was also examined from a sociological perspective, which emphasized that organizational design ensured managerial control and worker compliance, incorporating certain elements vital for organizational survival, e.g. hierarchy, role authority and office. Henri Fayol's "14 Principles of Management" have been a significant influence on modern management theory. His practical list of principles helped early 20th century managers learn how to organize and interact with their employees in a productive way. Explain how the managerial ideas of Taylor and Fayol differ from Mayo. The Classical Management approach attempted to apply logic and scientific methods to 5/5(1).

Henri Fayol's "14 Principles of Management" have been a significant influence on modern management theory. His practical list of principles helped early 20th century managers learn how to organize and interact with their employees in a productive way.
Influenced by Taylor’s publication of The Principles of Scientific Management in , it is unclear whether Fayol was a theorist with original ideas or whether he was a good manager who took management practices to their next level of evolution.
Immediately, we can see a difference between the ideas of Taylor and Fayol and those of Mayo as they are even classified differently.
In order to explain how these managerial ideas differ, I will first explain what those ideas were.
