which principle state "one plan, one boss" and 'one head,one plan"?

Hey Ayushman,

It's good to see that you are quite engrossed in this chapter. So, let me help you with your above question.

The principles that have been mentioned above are as follows:  

''One plan, One boss '' as stated by Fayol under the principle of Unity of command, where he emphasised that any person should be answerable to just one boss. If an individual receives command from two or more people then, this principle is violated. According to Fayol, this principle plays an important role in management. If this principle is violated then, it leads to confusion in the mind of the employee which leads to instability and disturbance.   

''One head, One boss ''  is the basic component of the principle of Unity of direction, where each unit of the organisation should work towards a common objective. According to it, units having same goals should have a single head and plan. This principle helps in eliminating the overlapping of work.
