The study of innovation and how wealth is generated was at the core of

For answers, he usually turned to an analysis of management structure. From his earliest studies, he chronicled how in the late 1800s the railroad and telegraph made rapid industrial growth possible and how the gray-suited executive class gradually replaced the entrepreneurial tycoon as the chief corporate power.
To shun the standard focus on 19th century "robber barons" in favor of a more nuanced look at corporate supervisors was considered a major shift in historical review.
In this transition to a greater professionalism, he wrote about the birth of "a new economic Institution, the managerial business enterprise, and a new subspecies of economic man, the salaried manager."
He advocated the importance of this salaried manager as an independent force in business, a person whose expertise was portable and not forever tied to the company he over-saw.
"The Visible Hand," which championed his notion of the expert salaried manager, challenged 18th,century economist Adam Smith's emphasis on the "invisible hand" of free-market forces in capitalism.
