This chapter covers a selection of Urwick's writings from the Second World War onwards. There are twelve subsections, some dealing with individual books, others topic areas, and in all covering a very wide range of areas within management. It starts with an edited book of Mary Parker Follett's writings, ‘Dynamic Administration’, moves to perhaps his best‐known book (jointly with Edward Brech) ‘The Making of Scientific Management’, then to his synthesis of theory, ‘Elements of Administration’. These are followed by a section on leadership, ‘The Pattern of Management’, his excellent work on management pioneers, ‘The Golden Book of Management’, ‘Notes on the Theory of Organization’, and ‘Staff in Organizations’. Finally, there are sections on management as a profession, management education, personnel management, and semantics, his participation in the debate about the meaning of the term ‘organization’.

Keywords:   management theory, organization theory, dynamic administration, scientific management, management history, leadership, staff in organizations, semantics, management education, personnel management
