Legendary thinker Peter F. Drucker literally created the concept of management. In this seminal work, he explored how managers in the for-profit and public service sectors alike can perform effectively. Now Joseph A. Maciariello, one of Drucker's foremost colleagues and proteges, has exhaustively revised and updated this book to reflect more than 30 years of development in Drucker's analysis and thinking since its inital publication. The result is a work designed to meet the needs of the modern-day manager or student of business.
Business examples that are now out of date have been reworked; Drucker's thinking on ideas as diverse as the manager's role within the organization, the relationship of management and society, and the future of management have been expanded and clarified.
Management is ready at last to enter the 21st century and continue its reign as an essential reference for managers worldwide.
