Hi Vickrief... I think Unity of Command and Unity of Direction are the most important principles. In managing any team if these basic principles are breached it leads to confusion in the team's minds and the goals of the organisation are not reached.

Hi, according to me "Division of work" is the most important one, because it helps to save time and energy and also increases the productivity efficiently and effectively.

According to me, the answer depends on what kind of firm we are managing. If we are in a small one, unity of command and direction and control are appreciated.
But if we are in a big firm, I agree with Mr. @Paluku Mathe. One of the advantages of this principe is to make the personnel responsible for parts of the work, we can also use delegation and promote a system of sanction and rewards to motivate people to be responsible.
