Chester Barnard's text regarding the theory of the authority is part of his 1938 work that is titled 'Functions of the Executive". This sets out a theory of organizations and the functions of an executive within an organization. His theory is based on a set of managerial functions; the challenge is the continued co-operation of the individuals within the organization in order to achieve the final objectives.

This co-operation rests on various elements such as the form of the authority, the context of the decision, the channels of communication etc. these forces are in constant interplay. In this paper we will focus particularly on the theory of authority and its context.
