Lyndall F. Urwick

subjects Lyndall F. Urwick writes about General Management, Miscellaneous, Trends and Future
Lyndall F. Urwick's profile Born in England in 1891. He attended Repton and New College, Oxford, and was awarded a B.A. degree in 1913 and an M.A. degree in 1919. He began his career in his family's glove manufacturing business, Fownes Brothers and Company. Following service in the First World War, he became organizing secretary for Rowntree and Company, a confectioner. He subsequently moved to the position of administrator of the Management Research Groups and then became Director of the International Management Institute in Geneva in 1929. When the Great Depression cut short the life of the Institute, Urwick returned to England and established the management consultancy Urwick, Orr and Partners.

During World War I1 he was an advisor in organization to His Majesty's Treasury, and in 1942 he moved to the Petroleum Warfare Department. From 1945 until 1965 Urwick continued his work as a management consultant and served as a visiting faculty member at such universities as Toronto, New South Wales, California, and Minnesota. He retired to Australia, where he died in 1983 at the age of 92.
