How do I include The 14 concepts of management in my paper/lit review at the doctoral level (without listing or bulleting the concepts)?  I had an instructor tell me not to list or bullet items in doctoral work.  Is this a correct statement? 

See example:

Fayol proposed fourteen principles of management to include a) division of work, b) authority, c) discipline, d) unity of command, e) unity of direction, f) subordination of individual interest to general interest, g) remuneration, h) centralization, i) scalar chain, j) order, k) equity, l) stability of tenure of personnel, m) initiative, and n) esprit de corps (MindTools, 2011).

Use them as subheadings, then expand on each one. Avoid lists as they lack context. You need to add the context. For example, "esprit de corps" means nothing to most English speakers so why is it there? If you understand why it's there, explain to your readers. If you don't, don't quote it!
