Title: The effective executive
Author: Peter Drucker
Summary:What is the measure of an executive? Peter Drucker reminds us that it is the ability to get the right things done. So how do see the overlooked and avoid the unproductive? How do we mould results from our intelligence, imagination and knowledge when that's not how most executives do it? Drucker identifies five practices essential to business effectiveness that can, and must, be learned: - Management of time. - Choosing what to contribute to the practical organisation. - Knowing where and how to mobilise strength for best effect. - Setting up the right priorities. - And Knitting all of them together with effective decision making. Ranging widely through the annals of business and government, Peter Drucker demonstrates the distinctive skill of the executive and offers fresh insights into old and seemingly obvious business situations.
