Fayol, les fayoliens et l’impossible réforme de l’administration durant l’entre-deux-guerres

Abstract : Whereas Henri Fayol’s work on business administration is well known, his reflections on State monopolies and public administration are often forgotten. Indeed Fayol performed two major surveys: the first on the French Post, Telegraph and Telephone administration in 1920-1921, the second as a member of a committee on the monopoly of tobacco and matches in France. His very strict diagnoses were not taken seriously. His ideas were sometimes discussed, but mostly ignored. Fayol’s followers (Carlioz, Schatz, Vanuxem, Wilbois and Zapp) attempted to continue his work, particularly within the Centre for Administrative Studies. Their ideas spread and there were some applications, but their analyses were isolated during the interwar period, despite the continuing juridical and political reflections on the reform of State.
