Don't use 14 Principles for Flat or Network Type Organizations

Consider the type of the organization, the nature of the leadership, and the structure. If it is a highly centralized structure, with no flexibility, and top-down supervision, the manager maybe able to implement the principles. If the organization structure is flat or based on networks or on teams, the manager may have more trouble implementing the principles, such as unity of command.

Applicability of 14 Principles

Fayol's principles are just that, principles. He does not give any indication as to what is the best method used in applying the principles.
