Description

"Hailed by BusinessWeek as "the man who invented management," Peter F. Drucker approached the topic from a stunning number of angles-drawing on lessons from sociology, culture, politics, economics, religion, psychology, and literature-and molded them into a clear, coherent vision: The ultimate health of society depends on whether our corporations and other institutions are effectively run and responsibly led. Over many decades, Drucker's books and articles have influenced countless business, nonprofit, and government leaders, and his principles continue to help steer the most successful organizations in the world. But even his most avid fans will find a new Peter Drucker in these pages. The Drucker Lectures presents thirty-three of his most important speeches and talks delivered at professional gatherings and in the classroom. They showcase a great thinker at work-exploring, testing, and refining his ideas. Containing sixty years worth of oratory-from World War II and the dawn of television to the internet age and the rise of China as an economic power-The Drucker Lectures includes: - The Problems of Maintaining Continuous and Full Employment (1957) - Management in the Big Organizations (1967) - Structural Changes in the World Economy and Society as They Affect American Business (1977) - The Information-Based Organization (1987) - The Knowledge Worker and the Knowledge Society (1994) - On Globalization (2001) At times humble and self-deprecating, at times boldly authoritative, Drucker always kept his audience spellbound; this book is sure to have the same effect on readers. The Drucker Lectures is an important addition to the oeuvre of the man who laid the foundation of management as we know it."
