The Growth and Dissolution of a Large-Scale Business Enterprise

Liverpool University Press

This final chapter explores the factors that led to the Furness Group’s split in 1919, using the private papers of Furness manager Frederick Lewis as the basis of the study. The papers provide a contemporary account of the influence of personality, decision-making, expediency, and market conditions that surrounded the Group’s split. It concludes that the problems plaguing the Furness Group in 1919 were most often caused by the personalities within both new and old leadership.
