 Theories of management include classical theory of management, human relations theory, systems theory, contingency theory, and labour process theory.

Classical theory of management was originally developed by Henry Fayol (1841-1925) who is also known as “father” of modern management. This theory primarily describes the best way of function by workers.Explaining the hierarchical structure, Fayol noted that organisations’ hierarchy should be divided into three management levels with distinct roles and responsibilities. At the top level,there should be board of directors, middle level is the body of supervisors considering individual departmental goals, and lower level management over-see daily activities including with the employment issues.Approach of autocratic leadership sits at the heart of classical

management theory. In that approach, it is stated that single leader should hold all the decision-making power and decisions should be delivered top to bottom.

On the other hand, Human Relations theory appears to be entirely in contrast to classical theory of management. It draws its basic arguments upon employee-cantered approach.This principle opposes feature of

Hierarchy of classical theory of management and emphasize upon coordination between workers and executives through formal and informal channels of communication.Effectiveness and practice of human relation theory is highly questionable in current business environment. However, some HR practices have embraced the aspects of human relations theory with the combination of other effective theories.
