- Fayol lists “division of work” as one of his 14 principles of management (p. 217). Is this the same as Weber’s “division of labor” (p. 231)?
- Is Fayol’s “scalar chain” (p. 219) similar to Weber’s “managerial hierarchy” (p. 231)?
- Do any of Fayol’s principles (pp. 217–221) correspond to Weber’s “career orientation” (p. 231)?
