Responding to the need for solutions to government’s most complex problems, Secretary of Defense McNamara recommended establishing an organization of specialists. Three weeks later, in October 1961, LMI was born. Since then, LMI has evolved into a not-for-profit organization with a rich history of public service by bringing the best management and technical minds to address intricate issues across government. LMI’s mission is to improve the management of government. With more than 1,000 consultants, LMI designs and implements solutions to some of the toughest problems facing government managers in logistics, information technology, and resource allocation. More than half of the employees are either veterans or former civil servants, and more than 70 percent have advanced degrees. With experience in logistics, acquisition and financial management, infrastructure management, information management, organizational improvement, and policy and program support, LMI has developed strong relationships and capabilities in the defense, intelligence, homeland security, health care, and energy and environment markets.
LMI also invests in a research program that brings additional rigor, precision, and predictability to government decision-making. We encourage our employees to expand their expertise and use the results of their research to find new solutions to governments' greatest management challenges.
