Alfred D. Chandler, Jr. was, by general consensus, the pre-eminent business historian of the twentieth century. Through a prodigious body of work, Chandler made the study of the evolution of business enterprise integral to the study of the evolution of economy and society. His work combined detailed historical investigations with grand sociological syntheses. As a result, Chandler's study of the modern business enterprise invited social scientists and business academics as well as historians to contribute to our understanding of a central institution of our time.

Chandler revealed how managerial activity was central to the functioning of successful industrial corporations, and hence to the performance of the economy as a whole. This book gathers together contributions from management scholars fundamentally influenced by the work of Chandler to discuss management innovation, the ways in which people who exercise strategic control over the allocation of resources put in place organizational structures that can enable an enterprise to prosper and grow. The volume offers a range of perspectives to examine the challenges that corporate management encounters.

Review:

Review from other book by this author: "David Teece's concept of dynamic capabilities integrates the resource-based theory of the firm with an evolutionary view of economic processes. This important book combines theoretical insight with practical advice for both managers and policy makers." --John Kay, Fellow of St John's College, Oxford, Financial Times columnist, and author of The Truth about Markets

"Teece's authoritative work on dynamic capabilities has important implications for strategic management, as well as for organization studies, economics, innovation policy, and antitrust law. Scholars and practitioners in a broad range of areas will find this book to be an invaluable reference and source of new ideas." --Constance E. Helfat, J. Brian Quinn Professor in Technology and Strategy, Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth
