Strategic management thinking emerged in the 1930s (Steiner, 1969), and developed significantly in the 1940s. An identifiable body of literature began to appear in the 1950s and increased significantly, so much so that strategic management became a separate discipline in the 1970s. Over these years, two main themes were pursued: (1) process and (2) content. A third theme, structure (sometimes referred to as “organisation”), received less attention, probably because of its overlap with process and content, and because its parameters have been difficult to identify.
