Open Access
  • Published: 01 Jan 2012 Journal: REVIEW OF INTERNATIONAL COMPARATIVE MANAGEMENT, volume 13, issue 1 March, pages 30-36
Zero tolerance policies have been increasingly popular in both education and business. Henri Fayol was the one of the earliest and influential thinkers in modern management theory. He defined management as a body of knowledge and defined his 14 administrative principles. It is an interesting exercise to apply Fayol’s teachings to the theory of zero tolerance and attempt to determine what Fayol would think of this new management technique.
