Changing FortunesRemaking the Industrial Corporation
By: Nitin Nohria, Davis Dyer, and Frederick Dalzell
John Wiley & Sons 2002
Review by: Lydia Morris Brown
It is the authors premise that though the big industrial corporations are still vital to the economy, they do not now, nor will they in the future, dominate center stage as they once did during the early 1900s. Moreover, the forces that drove the big industrials from their position of dominance are the same forces that are driving significant changes inside these enterprises. Changing Fortunes describes and analyzes the decline of the industrial corporation and its attendant internal transformations during the late industrial and early postindustrial eras and outlines the strategies and initiatives that appear to have the most potential to ensure the survival of individual companies in an environment of fewer opportunities and choices. This work, based on statistical information about enterprises in the Fortune 100 in 1974, tracked through 2000, and a series of case studies, is offered to provide a useful perspective on the challenges faced by leaders of large industrial firms. Its lessons in the dynamics of decline also offer valuable insights to leaders of service businesses and emerging industries, who can expect to experience the very same challenges in the future.
