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 Druckeras Brain--a compact guide to the great manas wisdom. Krames had no intention of writing a biography, but rather a book that would showcase Druckeras most important ideas and strategies, and explain why they are just as useful today as they were decades ago. Druckeras 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.

This user-friendly book will help readers grasp all of Druckeras 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 ...
