Functional definition, the functions to be performed by a subodinate must be defined clearly and precisely. The limits of authority of every subodinate should also be clearly defined.
Unity of Command, every subodinate must at a time receive orders and be accountable to only one superior. No individual can serve more than one boss at the same time.
Delegation by results expected , authority should be delegated according to the results expected of subordinates. This will enable the subordinates to know by what standards their performance will be judged.
Absoluteness of responsibility, responsibility can never be delegated , by delegating authority a manager, therefore,becomes responsible for the actions of his Subodinates.
Parity of authority and responsibility, they should be co - extensive and Coterminus .It is unfair to hold a person responsible for something over which he has no authority. Responsibility without authority causes frustration, and authority without responsibility results in misuse of power. There need not be mathematical equality between authority and responsibility but the two must go together if the results are to be achieved efficiently.
