9780812909326: The Changing World of the Executive

Peter Drucker won wide acclaim as the founder of the discipline of management and as the most influential thinker and writer on modern organizations. The wealth of essays he published at the height of his career are surprisingly relevant today, even prescient. His writings are still strongly informing the practice of management, whether in corporations, not-for-profit entities, or government agencies.

The Changing World of the Executive brings together forty of Drucker's essays - most of them originally published in the Wall Street Journal from 1975 to 1982. While covering a range of topics, the essays collectively seek to answer a question that's as urgent as ever: "How can managers better understand and fulfill the new duties and responsibilities created by their constantly transforming world?"

Each selection is as relevant and thought-provoking today as it was when first written. Reflecting the author's international viewpoint, an entire nine-essay section is devoted to emerging developments in global business and their implications for the executive's role.

Forward-thinking and insightful, The Changing World of the Executive delivers a treasure trove of wisdom from one of the world's most renowned management thinkers.
