9780750685054: Managing in the Next Society (Classic Drucker Collection)

Divided into four parts, the book offers searching analysis of the 'information revolution' and the knowledge society it has created. It goes to scrutinize the unprecendented demographic, economic and sociological transforms of recent times to present an outline of 'The Next Society' - which in turn points to a challenging, provocative and at times disturning view of the future.

Managing in the Next Society is a collection of Peter Drucker's most strikingly prescient articles. Salient and incisive as ever, Drucker ranges widely over the most critical issues facing business and society today to offer advice, admonition and instruction for proactive executives.

About the Author:

Born in Vienna in 1909, Peter F. Drucker was educated in Austria and England. From 1929 he was a newspaper correspondent abroad and an economist for an international bank in London. Since 1937 he has been in the United States, first as an economist for a group of British banks and insurance companies, and later as a management consultant to several of the country's largest companies, as well as leading companies abroad. Drucker has since had a distinguished career as a teacher, first as Professor of Politics and Philosophy at Bennington College, then for more than twenty years as Professor of Management at the Graduate Business School of New York University. Since 1971 he has been Clarke Professor of Social Science at Claremont Graduate School in California. In addition to his management books, Peter Drucker is also renowned for his prophetic books analysing politics, economics and society. These books span fifty years of modern history beginning with The End of Economic Man (1939) and including The Practice of Management; Innovation and Entrepreneurship; Managing in the Next Society; Management Challenges in the 21st Century; The Effective Executive and The Essential Drucker.

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.
