The Struggle for Control of the Modern Corporation: Organizational Change at General Motors, 1924-1970 (Structural Analysis in the Social Sciences, Vol 17)
Robert F. FreelandISBN: 0521630347;
Drawing on primary historical material, The Struggle for Control of the Modern Corporation, provides a historical overview of decision making and political struggle within one of America's largest and most important corporations. Freeland examines the changes in the General Motors organization between the years 1924 and 1970. He takes issue with the well-known argument of business historian Alfred Chandler and economist Oliver Williamson, who contend that GM's multidivisional structure emerged and survived because it was more efficient than alternative forms of organization.
