The Turkish business history has been gradually taken attraction from the management science studies. Pre and early Republican era is a specific time period for business history studies. The First Izmir Economic Congress, which was held after the War of Independence but before signing a peace treaty and declaring a new form of government, was examined in detail by the history and economics scholars; however, it has not been studied by the management scientists. The top cadre that won the War of Independence established organizational structures that can carry out the national development of the country with their strategic management skills. As a result of the decisions taken in the congress, İşbank and Sanayi and Maadin Bank were established as the first examples of Turkish business groups. Bank-centred business groups, which emerged in the first Izmir Economic Congress to meet the goal of national development, have set an example for many organizational structures that were to be established later. Theme thousand in the analysis of organizational structures shaped by the institutional conditions of the era is the historical transformation methodology. Our study will contribute to the management science by examining the original organizational structures established in the early Republican period with the historical transformation methodology and shed light on this period which has not been sufficiently examined.
