On the History of Organisation and Management in Large German Enterprises Since the Nineteenth Century

  • Hans Pohl
Part of the German Yearbook on Business History 1982 book series (BUSINESS, volume 1982)


Research into the organisation and management of indudstrial enterprises still lags very far behind in Germany, although a number of more recent case studies consider the organisational and management structures of enterprises as well as their business development. Among them we should mention the work of Jürgen Kocka on the Siemens family firm, Hartmut Pogge von Strandmann on Mannesmann and Wilhelm Treue on the Thyssen concern1.
