The translation of Fayol from French to English[edit source]

Hi there,

I have been working (researching) during 2009 on the "surprising" translation of Henri Fayol book from French into English. To the bilingual readers from a French (cultural) background who get a chance to read fluently the three versions (original, Coubrough, and Storrs) the first impression is that these two translators had make a very poor job. From a very benevolent and sociological approach of Chief-Workers relationships, the English versions look quite "militaristic" and almost totally deprivated of its social consideration by the change of words, or of meaning of words between languages.

But I made next an institutional analysis of France and USA and found that the respective workforces were very different, causing different needs in term of management. After exploring the possibilities of various theoretical approaches (Foucault, Ricoeur, Habermas, Chomski, Rawls) I finally decided myself for using an Habermasian grid of reading on the cross-textual analysis, and to explain these changes with the Reflective Equilibrium of Rawls, in order to "lift the veil of ignorance" on the differences between traditional French (pre-1968) and American (pre-2000?) management styles and ethics.

My "problem" is that if this topic would completely fall into a Management School in France (because French scholars don't have any "ideological" issues for using Political Science theories in Strategic management researches), it appeared to me that it was a bit "avant-gardiste" in Anglo-American management schools and that my topic would be more welcome in a School of Sociology.

Your thoughts?
Thanks in advance for your replies. Cheers. -- Silwilhith 03:45, 8 February 2010 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Wikipedia[edit source]

I'm thinking of starting a fun project to study the management of an on-line encyclopedia, Wikipedia. "Fun" is a synonym for "interesting." Not here on this talk page. However, today, I'd like to encourage looking at how the principles, considered fundamental in management technology, apply or don't apply to Wikipedia, and the effects of this "in actual practice." So I'm creating Principles of Management/Wikipedia to look at this. And remember two more fundamental principles, folks, Be Nice, and Be There or Be Square. --Abd (discusscontribs) 13:39, 14 January 2014 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Esprit de Corps[edit source]

From resource page, added by IP 59.93.135.246:

the keyword of esprit de corps is unity is strength

Perhaps someone can expand on this theme and then add it back to the resource page.

Principles of management is much more than a definition. It covers at least four content areas and 45 different topics. This is a full semester of learning. See https://clep.collegeboard.org/exam/management for a topical outline. -- Dave Braunschweig (discusscontribs) 12:36, 27 October 2016 (UTC)Reply[reply]
