There is growing gap between the fundamental thoughts of early management authors and current, mostly subordinate authors, accounts of how these pioneers developed their ideas among modern scholars and students. This deficiency can be rectified by searching for original sources from when the idea of an innovator were being articulated, and the context from which it took place. In this paper I discuss how the definition of management has changed over time and how scholars have moved away from the classical management of work towards Scientific management theory. In this  paper  have also discussed how these two  management theory have furthered knowledge of the history of management by finding and translating pioneering writings, and a present a rare translation of these theories. A special focus has been given to  Henry Fayols 14 point principle and how they have changed the course of management overtime. I have comprehensively critically analysed each and every aspect of management theories and ultimately given key differences between both the theories.
