This final chapter evaluates Urwick as a man and his contributions to management. It first discusses his character and abilities, his beliefs and vision, the influences on his career, the roles within his career, and his writing. Then, it continues to various aspects of his influence: his impact on management in Britain, his international standing, his contemporary relevance, and finally his place in history. The final paragraph contains a summation from the eulogy at his memorial service: ‘We need exemplars of Lyndall Urwick's integrity, his vision, his internationalism, his determination of priorities, his courage and his sense of service’.
