A fundamental assumption of most productivity books is the existence of well-defined, known-duration tasks. In practice, however, this rarely applies. Especially the knowledge worker - to speak in Drucker's terms - cannot estimate whether he needs a week or a month to complete what he does.

Drucker presents an approach to effectiveness that works in the real world. He does not present a detailed productivity system (which, in my experience, is always too complex to work in practice anyway), but rather flexible, practice-oriented principles for being effective. Consider, for instance, this

"Most discussions of the executive's task start with the advice to plan one's work. [...] The only thing wrong with it is that it rarely works. The plans always remain on paper, always remain good intentions [...] Effective executives do not start with their tasks. They start with their time [...] by finding out where their time actually goes. Then [...] they consolidate their "discretionary" time into the largest possible continuing units."

In contrast to other authors, Drucker's book goes far beyond a simple to-do list management. He states principles of effectiveness like contribution, building on strengths, effective decisions, etc. that are - in practice - at least as important as to-do lists.

As previous reviewers have said, this book was written about 1965. So the examples are not the most up-to-date possible. But the content remains EXTREMELY sound, and the book is brief enough that even busy executives should not be put off by the time investment needed to read it. I highly recommend the book.

No doubt that Drucker is a master when it comes to what makes executives effective. But his advice is a lot about common sense and his examples of effective leadership often date back to the mid-50's and earlier. I enjoyed reading the book but finished it being neither motivated nor changed.

An outstanding book with the key word in the title being "effective". Having spent several years working in large corporations and having dealt with many types of managers and executives I am able to count on one hand the ones I have been associated with who were actually "effective" in their respective positions. A must read for anyone currently in an executive management position or aspiring to become any type of manager.

This book is not just a good read but should be treated as a manual by anyone who wants to get things done in the knowledge based economy. Some of Drucker's advice seems obvious, e.g. that effective executive should play on the strengths of his coworkers. But how often do managers follow this principle in real life? There is plenty of such simple yet profound advice in this book by the world's No. 1 management thinker.

As always, Mr. Drucker comers through with shining colors. This ia quite an informative book that lays out the concepts in effective terms. Also suggest you supplement this fine work with a recent hands-on guide to getting results at work when you are a manager or supervisor (or want to be). This popular and info-filled book is called "The Leader's Guide: 15 Essential Skills."

Der Altmeister Peter Drucker "plaudert aus dem Nähkästchen".
Ein gutes Kompendium der klassichen Management-weisheiten, gut verständlich in Allerwelts-sprache dargebracht.
Ein sehr nützliches Buch, um immer wieder kurze Abschnitte darin zu lesen und zu verinnerlichen.

Ok so I know its a classic and a few decades old, but...It is a great book and well worth the read. I have one other Drucker book, but this one is a good place to start because it is much easier to read.
