Definitive Drucker, TheChallenges for Tomorrow's Executives - Final Advice from the Father of Modern Management

The Father of Modern Management’s final advice for succeeding in the global economy Even in the months before his death, Peter Drucker was thinking in innovative ways about management―in a world transforming before his eyes. He requested a series of meetings with Elizabeth Haas Edersheim to explain his ideas, and this insightful, practical work is the result. The Definitive Drucker provides visions, concepts, and advice that will help you steer your company or non-profit through the turmoil and unpredictability of business today. Topics include business risks and opportunities in the coming decades, the fragility of economic systems, the changing role of the CEO, and important trends--many of which Drucker predicted decades ago. Edersheim discusses Drucker’s questions for redefining assumptions and target results, then organizes the book into five key themes: * Connecting with customers* Innovating without abandoning what works* Developing lasting partnerships* Creating and retaining knowledge workers* Establishing disciplined decision makingDrucker’s uncanny ability to see around curves and corners made him one of the most celebrated management thinkers of the past century. He always knew what was ahead, and knew how to manage it―calmly, carefully, and effectively. Use the advice outlined in The Definitive Drucker to drive productivity, growth, and a sustainable society in an uncertain future.
