Henri Fayol (1841-1925) developed six functions of management that work in conjunction with 14 management principles. This theory has some core ideas that live on today, but you'll rarely find a workplace swearing by Fayol's 14 principles.

2. Planning
3. Organising
4. Commanding
5. Co-ordinating
6. Controlling
