Amazon.de

No single person has influenced the course of business in the 20th century as much as Peter Drucker. He practically invented management as a discipline in the 1950s, elevating it from an ignored, even despised, profession into a necessary institution that "reflects the basic spirit of the modern age." Now, in Management Challenges for the 21st Century, Drucker looks at the profound social and economic changes occurring today and considers how management--not government or free markets--should orientate itself to address these new realities.

Drucker sees the period we're living in as one of "PROFOUND TRANSITION--and the changes are more radical perhaps than even those that ushered in the 'Second Industrial Revolution' of the middle of the 19th century, or the structural changes triggered by the Great Depression and the Second World War". In the midst of all this change, he contends, there are five social and political certainties that will shape business strategy in the not-too-distant future: the collapsing birthrate in the developed world; shifts in distribution of disposable income; a redefinition of corporate performance; global competitiveness; and the growing incongruence between economic and political reality. Drucker then looks at requirements for leadership ("One cannot manage change. One can only be ahead of it"), the characteristics of the "new information revolution" (one should focus on the meaning of information, not the technology that collects it), productivity of the knowledge worker (unlike manual workers, knowledge workers must be seen as capital assets, not costs), and finally the responsibilities that knowledge workers must assume in managing themselves and their careers.

Drucker's writing career spans eight decades and the years have only served to sharpen his insight and perspective in a way that makes most other management texts seem derivative. While Management Challenges for the 21st Century is no quick aeroplane read, it is a wise and thought-provoking book that will both challenge and inspire the diligent reader. This book is for people who care about their businesses and careers in the information age- -CEOs, managers, and knowledge workers. Highly recommended. --Harry C. Edwards, Amazon.com

5.0 von 5 Sternen The Wisdom of Perspective 8. Juni 2000
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Surveying the authors in today's "Business & Finance" section can give you an acute case of guru overload. Leadership gurus. Management gurus. Self-actualization gurus. Egotists. Hagiographers. Monomaniacs. Sheepish academics in vulpine inspirational-speaker clothing. Thinkers who can't write. Writers with nothing to say. It's enough to make a grown critic weep.
But soft! what light from yonder bookshelf breaks? It is Peter Drucker, and his writing is the sun. For over sixty years, Drucker has built his reputation on his penetrating insight, deadpan style, intelligent marshalling of facts, and sturdy common sense. Drucker's books and articles don't tout crackpot theories, or substitute emphasis for evidence. He recognizes how the world truly works, and decries baseless shoulds and untested presumptions as "simply nonsense". Above all Drucker offers perspective: intelligent observations, practical advice, and a historically informed long view that distinguishes genuine challenges from faux revolutions.
_Management Challenges for the 21st Century_, the latest in Drucker's string of successes, is a welcome antidote to the widespread contagion of alarmist, brave-new-world, everything-you-believed-is-wrong assertions. Drucker enjoys testing assumptions, and he begins by debunking some of the most jealously guarded, including "management is business management" and "management is internally focused". He knows what's new, what's old, and where the true distinctions lie, decrying the "totally incomprehensible distinction between management and entrepreneurship" and remarking wryly that today's Information Revolution is merely the fourth of its kind in world history (and not even the fastest or most sweeping).

5.0 von 5 Sternen The MOST IMPORTANT book on the FUTURE OF SOCIETY 6. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
First published in Forbes magazine, California Management Review and Harvard Business Review, the six chapters in this book contain nothing that is an excerpt from Peter Drucker's earlier management books. Indeed, this book supplements Drucker's many earlier management books by looking ahead to the future of management thinking and practice.
At 90, Peter Drucker is, by all accounts, the most enduring management thinker of our time. Born in Vienna, educated in Austria and England, he has worked since 1937 in the United States, first as an economist for a group of British banks and insurance companies, and later as a management consultant to several leading companies. Drucker has since had a distinguished career as a teacher, including more than twenty years as Professor of Management at the Graduate Business School of New York University. With a long-term business perspective second to none, Drucker's books span sixty years of modern history beginning with The End of Economic Man (1939) and Managing in a Time of Great Change; Management: Tasks, Responsibilities, Practices; Innovation and Entrepreneurship; The Effective Executive; Managing for Results and The Practice of Management.
This book looks afresh at the future of management thinking and practice and defines new ways of delivering success. It deals exclusively with tomorrow's hot management issues-the crucial, central, life-and-death issues that are certain to be the major challenges of tomorrow. The biggest challenge will be knowledge worker productivity-what is it; how can it work; how do we manage knowledge workers and ourselves?

Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
I read Peter Drucker for what he says that is relevant to electronic marketing strategy. His earlier collections, like "Managing in a Time of Great Change," have been foresightful and though-provoking. His latest book mostly revisits previous themes, and otherwise spends too much time on things like the birth rate. If you haven't read Drucker, then this book, like all his work, is well worth it. But if you follow his work, this book won't "change the world" for you.
