Summary
"Few thinkers have had a greater impact on business than Peter Drucker, the inventor of modern management, whose legacy continues to influence leaders around the globe. His keen observations about organizations took the form of deceptively simple truths and astute predictions. Decentralization, outsourcing, the rise of the knowledge worker, a focus on the customer, the dangers of skyrocketing executive pay, even the probability of a global financial crisis--it was Drucker who first expressed these ideas, sometimes decades before they became accepted wisdom. Although Drucker is renowned as a thinker and idea generator, the "what" in his teachings was far more prevalent than the "how." Now, The Practical Drucker mines his vast body of work to pinpoint 40 applicable truths for solving real-world problems. Readers will find surprising insights and clear guidance on how to: engage employees and achieve outstanding performance; remedy destructive office politics and foster innovation; ensure follow-through on good ideas and handle a crisis; become a better decision maker; choose the best leadership style for different situations; do more with less and steer clear of leadership traps; [and] avoid five deadly marketing sins. In succinct, satisfying chapters, the book distills the practical wisdom from Drucker's dozens of books and articles, as well as his decades of teaching and consulting, into a set of fresh, vital lessons that will resonate today and for years to come."--Publisher's description
