The Practice of Management

The Practice of Management

by Peter Drucker

  • Why read?

    Though not concerned with techniques this is a practical book. It is written out of many years experience in working with managements of small companies. And it aims at being a guide for men in major management positions, enabling them to examine their own work and performance, to diagnose their weaknesses and to improve their own effectiveness as well as the results of the enterprise they are responsible for. For yonger men in management - and for men who plan to make management their career - this book should provide both a vision of what management is and concrete guidance in the knowledge, performance and discipline that are needed to qualify for a major management position
