Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
Management Challenges in the 21st Century looks afresh at the future of management thinking and practice. The content revolves around two fundamental issues that are occuring simultaneously: changes in the world economy, and shifts in the practice of management. These developments, especially in developed countries are crucial in exploring and understanding the challenges of the future.This volume focuses on the key questions for all business: What are the new realities? What new policies are required of companies and executives in order to deal with these changes. Facing a whole swathe of issues head-on in his usual clear-sighted style, Drucker offers up a prescient and informed analysis that will help every executive to build a proactive strategy for the future.
Management's new paradigms. - - Strategy - the new certainties. - - The change leader. - - Information challenges. - - Knowledge - worker productivity. - - Managing oneself.
Peter Drucker is one of the greats. His sustained creativity over nearly fifty years of reflection on management, organization and the wider econmy and society is almost unmatched. There is scarcely a contemporary idea - Whether the idea of the voluntary knowledge Worker to the importance of management itself - that was not prefigured in his writing. Sometimes his enthusiasm ran away with him (we are not strangers to that ourselves): it is not obvious that knowledge, for example, is quite so short lived as he once declared.
