Henri Fayol (Istanbul, 1841 — Paris, 1925) was a French management theorist. Often associated with Frederick Taylor, his theories deal with the organization of production in the context of a competitive enterprise that has to control its production costs. Fayol was the first to identify the functions of management: plan, organize, command, coordinate and control.
