Generally, Rotary’s expansion into Europe was quite successful. In some countries it could build on predecessors. For example, in Switzerland a couple of businessmen founded the Swiss Friends of the USA at the end of the First World War. When Rotary International‘s “special commissioner”, F. W. Teele, arrived in Switzerland in 1923 to establish a club, he could build on this group. In only four years Rotary 30 CHAPTER 1 International had established 18 clubs in the country with more than 600 members in all.

Siemens warned against an uncritical “Americanism”, a standardization and simplification that contradicted German individualism. Yet he also recognized that this individualism had unhealthy aspects which should be resisted in the areas of industrial production and consumption. The differentiated approach of Köttgen and Siemens was quite representative of European business attitudes. There were, of course, persons such as Hugo Prager, head of the first Swiss Rotary Club, who admired the USA without any trace of criticism.

In France, Taylorist rationalization had to compete against an indigenous theory of management formulated by Henri Fayol. The practical organization of the firm formed the core of Fayol’s ideas, and since this focus paralleled that of Fordism, the transfer of American practices to France was limited. In most cases European managers picked out pieces from whatever was on offer; comprehensive transfers were rare. One such example was the leading German rubber producer and tire maker, Continental-Cautchouc-Compagnie AG.
