9780312320119: Managing in the Next Society: Lessons from the Renown Thinker and Writer on Corporate Management

Following in the successful vein of Managing for the Future (1992) and Managing in a Time of Great Change (1995), the incomparable Peter Drucker is back with fresh thoughts, insights, and knowledge about the ever-changing business society around us and the ever-expanding management roles required of us all-chiefs, executives, managers, and knowledge workers alike.

Two main themes are explored in many of the chapters in Managing in the Next Society: the rapidly expanding information shock wave that had its Internet Big Bang as recently as 1995; and the changing shape of our society to come-six major trends that are rapidly transforming our world into what Peter Drucker calls The Next Society.

About the Author:

From his first book, The End of Economic Man (1939), to this his most recent, Peter F. Drucker has been hailed in the United States and abroad as the seminal thinker, writer, and lecturer of our time on the twentieth-century business organization in all its for-profit and non-profit guises and forms. The recipient of many awards and honorary degrees, Mr. Drucker since 1971 has been Clarke Professor of Social Sciences at Claremont Graduate School in California as well as a frequent editorial page contributer to The Wall Street Journal. Earlier he taught at Bennington, Sarah Lawrence, and New York University. Mr. Drucker and his wife, Doris, live in Claremont, California.

From AudioFile:

Condensed from a compilation of writings that appeared in a number of places, the audio has a exquisite logic that is typical of this legendary consultant's writing. In his 90s now, he is still the consummate trailblazer whose insights and foresightedness are indispensable guides to the future. The principal idea in this work is the notion that processes and contractual alliances now identify businesses entities, more so than traditional ownership or the boundaries associated with factories. The new organizational identity is complex and patched together through international partnerships that blur traditional concepts of identity and require more flexible forms of management. This idea and observations about demographics, immigration, and the emergence of the knowledge worker make this essential listening for managers.
