Warren Lamb began his career as a consultant in 1947, working closely with Rudolf Laban and F.C. Lawrence in their groundbreaking motion studies in British industry. Impressed by Laban's system of movement notation and its possible use in behavioral analysis, Lamb created Movement Pattern Analysis, which he developed after establishing his own management consultancy firm in 1952. Since that time he has counseled thousands of senior executives and top teams worldwide.
In the U.S., his training and research collaborations with Irmgard Bartenieff and Dr. Judith Kestenberg have impacted the development of movement analysis and psychological profiling significantly. He has used the assessment method in collaboration with medical specialists as a diagnostic tool for therapeutic purposes, as in dance/movement therapy.
In addition to teaching at various venues, he chairs the Labanotation Institute at the University of Surrey, England. In demand as a lecturer and consultant, Warren is the author of over 100 articles and three books: Posture and Gesture, Management Behaviour, and Body Code.
