    Abstract

    Contemporary changes in corporate strategies and structures have been determined by market forces and the administrative heritage of specific firms. In particular, the partial 'Americanisation' of British corporate structure in the 1970s was crucial in shaping the shift to financial control regimes in British big business. The principal effect has been to expose both front line managers and the shopfloor to more continuous and intensive corporate surveillance.
