Shelves: business, leadership
Sometimes I like Drucker, sometimes I don't. This one brought some good old-fashioned down-to-earth solid advice for dealing with a changing environment and managing organizations through it. I hadn't heard quite so much of his management principles applied to the political arena before, so that was an enjoyable new wrinkle. The book draws from older articles written in the 1990's, so it may seem a bit dated, but good management principles are durable enough to be generally applicable over time.

This book seems like a calculated attempt to trade off Drucker's posthumous fame. Many of the articles feel dated, much like books of economic advice before the crash. One article still had power to charm and instruct: 6 rules for presidents. 1. Ask what needs to be done. 2. Concentrate, don't splinter yourself. 3. Don't ever bet on a sure thing. 4. Don't micromanage. 5. Presidents don't have friends. 6. Once you're elected, stop campaigning. Interesting! President Obama take note.

Opens your eyes to business history, and overall a great book to help you understand how we should be thinking through our management processes in today's environment. More true today than when it was written.

It is just incredible that this book was written such a long time ago and that it is so on target even today. Very Drucker!
