The Real Principles of Management

Management concepts should be universal as it is primarily system to manage human behaviour. Hence it should apply to all institutions. Once neurophysiology figures out how the brain works, we understand human networks and integrate these with the cyberbrain a new conceptual model will arise. Fayol's principles will still be pretty good.

Henry Fayol's Principles are Applicable to Non-profit Organisations Too!

Yes there is no doubt about it. I have been so much attracted by it that I always carry them along with me I have codified them as: "dadu ussr coi pee" this has been codified by taking the first letter of each principle, starting with "division of work" also called specialisation of labour. Its very relevant for even non profit organisations.
The only principle where money is involved is remuneration, which means 'compensation' and nowhere Fayol talked about profit. The 14 principles are the heart and soul for the very existence of every successful organisation, be it profit-making or non-profit-making.
