Abstract : The Royal Navy underwent during the period 1890-1910 a complete transformation in materiel, personnel and purpose. The scope of this transformation was at least as great as that of the U. S. Navy in the years from 1940-1960. The Royal Navy metamorphosis was planned and executed by one individual of extraordinary capacity and unusual personality, Admiral Lord Fisher, who maintained highly centralized control of the whole organization. The record of this period presents an interesting historical example of naval management. This paper examines, in abbreviated form, the accomplishments, methods, personalities and problems involved.
