In September 1961, Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara sent a memorandum to President John F. Kennedy, advising “that we can achieve major breakthroughs in logistics management, where we spend half of the Defense budget, by sponsoring the establishment of a special, full-time organization of highly talented business management specialists.” President Kennedy agreed, and three weeks later—October 3, 1961—the Logistics Management Institute was born.
The Early Days
LMI’s Certificate of Incorporation established LMI’s objectives, which included engaging in and procuring research, development, engineering, and advisory services for the United States Government or any nonprofit organization operated exclusively for scientific, educational, or charitable purposes. Secretary McNamara summarized LMI’s original intent this way: “LMI is to be a fact-finding and research organization, designed to seek solutions to [highly complex logistics] problems.”
The first group of LMI Trustees included such luminaries as Charles H. Kellstadt, former Chairman of Sears, Roebuck and Company, writer and management consultant Peter Drucker, Professor Carlton Pederson of Stanford University, Dean Stanley E. Teele of Harvard University, and Professor Sterling Livingston of the Harvard Business School.
Today, LMI is still governed by an esteemed Board of Directors and operates with complete integrity, free of commercial and political interest. We continue to act as a trusted advisor to government managers and to bring the best, most creative management and technical minds to bear on solving complex issues.
We still operate the world’s most advanced logistics consulting group, but have expanded our scope to provide world-class expertise in the following:
