Abstract/Notes The work of Alfred D. Chandler Jr. (1918–2007) was undoubtedly path breaking
as well as paradigm building. His corpus of work can claim foundational relevance
to at least two separate subfields of the management studies discipline –
strategic management, and management/business history, together with theory
sets such as transaction cost economics and historical institutionalism. Chandler’s
career was profoundly important in building the management studies discipline in
both theoretical and empirical terms, seeking to explain the rise of the “modern
industrial enterprise,” yet it requires understanding within its own historical
context. Chandler’s work remains resonant today, and this chapter aims to
critically explore the implications of this phenomenon, both interrogating the
affirmative impacts of his writing and the contemporary world it reflected as well
as that of his critics.
