The most accessible guide to the essential ideas of a€œthe inventor of modern managementa€. In late 2003, ninety-four-year-old Peter Drucker invited Jeffrey Krames to his home for an unprecedented day-long interview. He spoke candidly about his seminal management principles, his enormous body of work (thirty-eight books over six decades), and the leaders he had advised over the years (including Jack Welch). Krames used the insights he gained that day to create Inside Druckera€™s Brain--a compact guide to the great mana€™s wisdom. Krames had no intention of writing a biography, but rather a book that would showcase Druckera€™s most important ideas and strategies, and explain why they are just as useful today as they were decades ago. Druckera€™s biggest contribution was a mind-set, not a methodology. He focused on prodding managers to ask the right questions, to look beyond what they thought they knew, and to focus on tomorrow rather than yesterday. If anything, this mind-set is more valuable in the digital age than it was in the industrial age. This user-friendly book will help readers grasp all of Druckera€™s key ideas on leadership, strategy, innovation, personal effectiveness, career development, and many other topics.It was no secret that GE was among the worlda#39;s most successful companies of the past fifty years; however the extent of Druckera#39;s influence on the ...
