5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Very Top Management Books of All Time, 3 Jun. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Effective Executive (Drucker series) (Paperback)
Revolutionary when written, The Effective Executive provides the fund of ideas on which most subsequent management works draw. To fully understand today's cutting edge business concepts, you must, absolutely must, first understand Drucker and read his original writings. The Effective Exectuive caused many in the business and academic worlds to scratch their heads asking "Why didn't I think of that?" The answer: they had focused on many of the trees in the forest about which Drucker wrote ("first things first" and "know thy time" and "effective decisions"), but they had not stepped back far enough to see the whole landscape and appreciate how the individual trees fit together. After reading The Effective Executive you will want to read challenging new works such as "Why Didn't I Think of That? - Think the Unthinkable and Achieve Creative Greatness" where the author takes you to the highest levels of current creative managerial thought so that you, unlike your predecessors in the pre-Drucker days, will not end up having to ask yourself "Why didn't I think of that?"
