1.0 INTRODUCTION
While pioneers of scientific management tried to determine the best way to perform a job, those in the administrative management explored the possibilities of an ideal way to put all jobs together and operate an organization.. Thus, Administrative Management is the study of how to create an organizational structure that leads to high efficiency and effectiveness. The first expert of Administrative Management Theory was Henri Fayol (1841-1925). Fayol is called the "Father of Modern Management". Henri Fayol was a French industrialist and a management consultant.

Fayol developed fourteen principles of administration to go along with management’s five primary roles. These principles are specialization/division of labor, authority with responsibility, discipline, unity of command, unity of direction, subordination of individual interest to the general interest, remuneration of staff, centralization, scalar chain/line of authority, order, equity, stability of tenure, initiative, and esprit de corps. Fayol clearly believed personel effort and team dynamics were part of an “ideal” organization

Henri Fayol’s administrative theory mainly focuses on the personal duties of management at a much more granular level. In other words, his work is more directed at the management layer. Fayol believed that management had five principle roles is to forecast and plan, to organize, to command, to co-ordinate, and to control.

Fayol conclude that the fourteen principles of administration are interdependent and that is the role of management to endure all five of management work smoothly to achieve the goal of an organization.
