This paper is situated within two debates. First concerns the theories of disorganised capitalism and the like which argue for major restructuring of advanced capitalist societies.

Common to these theories of disorganised capitalism is the understanding that the progressive development of an organised society Prestus, 1962 characterised by concentration, centralisation and corporatism is being interruptedchallenged by trends in a contrary direction. The second relates to arguments about the work of middle management e.g. Goffee and Scase, 1986 v. Dopson and Stewart, 1990.
