The purpose of this article was to examine and evaluate how 1) the late arrival of industrialization in Greece and the subsequent de-industrialization of the country deterred the formation and expansion of private corporations and impeded the mergers of small private enterprises in creating larger ones in the corporate form of business and 2) how the limited presence of private corporations retarded the development of management. Corporations are created through a planned initial formation and/or through the mergers of smaller corporate and non-corporate entities, such as proprietorships, partnerships, and family-owned non-stock corporations. Subsequently, the ample factors of production within the corporation allow the formation of professional management and the principles of organization which result in advanced managerial and organizational performance.
