Abstract:

"For Nearly Half a Century Peter Drucker has inspired and educated managers - and influenced the nature of business - with his landmark articles in the Harvard Business Review. Here, gathered together and framed by a thoughtful introduction from the Review's editor Nan Stone, is a collection of his most significant work." "One of our leading thinkers on the practice and study of management. Drucker has sought out, identified, and examined the most important issues confronting managers, from corporate strategy to management style to social change. Through his unique lens, this volume gives us the rare opportunity to trace the evolution of the great shifts in our workplaces, and to understand more clearly the role of managers in the ongoing effort to balance change with continuity."--Jacket.
