  Subordination of Individual Interest Example
Jaap de Jonge, Netherlands
Suppose an employee would like to obtain a big raise of his salary, beyond what what is usual for his job. Doing so would not be in the general interest of the firm, as it would lose it's competitiveness if it conitinues to pay too much to its employees. Therefore the principle Subordination of Individual Interest says that in this case the general interest should prevail over the individual interest of the employee.

I would have to agree with Henry Fayol on the matter about this subject creating "lively debate." After all, "Who decides what the interest of the organization as a whole is?"
 
  Subordination of Individual Interest
Kevin, USA
Considering the company's mission to do "X", "X" is always more important than management or staff interests. Typically, what will create the most "buy in" from executive management is to point out that an activity supports the organization's goal of "X". If the "interest" and the mission are not in sync, even though it is important to the manager (or staff member), the "interest" cannot be justified.
 
  Example of Subordination of Individual Interest
Henry, USA
Another example: Units of a firm may develop a new product or a new direction. Given this innovation is not aligned with corporate direction. Thus corporate direction has been subverted or subordinated to individual interest. Corporation coopt this behavior by encouraging and investing in skunkwork projects.
