This chapter covers a period when several British management institutions were initiated and Urwick played a key role in most of them. Urwick's Chairmanship of the Education Committee of the Institute of Industrial Administration (IIA) contributed to his appointment as Chairman of the Committee on Education for Management in 1945, creating a syllabus which could be jointly used by different management institutions. Urwick was also deeply involved in the creation of the British Institute of Management (BIM) in 1947. However, he was unhappy with its development and had an on—off relationship with it. He had long proposed a ‘Staff College for Industry’ and was involved in its gestation, although withdrawing from the founding committee before its implementation as Henley Management College. He also lobbied for a management education team to visit America in 1951 and became its leader. All these were important developments without quite becoming central to the future of British management.
