Wachstum und Wandel: German Industrial Enterprise 1950 to 1970
This study of the 100 largest industrial corporations of Germany has covered a period of rapid and far-reaching changes — an era of growth — from the disarray at the end of the Second World War to affluent 1970. The dynamic recovery and continued expansion of German industry provided the essential background for the subject of investigation — that is, the evolution of corporate strategies and organisation structures of the industrial enterprise. Whatever the economic fortunes of Germany may be in the future, and whatever political and social changes might occur, the top 100 corporations that represented over half of German industrial sales in 1970 will continue to play a major role. It remains to sum up the pattern of change observed and to draw some conclusions.
