In this major new work, Peter F. Drucker discusses how the new paradigms of management will change our basic assumptions about the practices and principles of management. Drucker explains "The New Information Revolution", discussing the information an executive needs and the information an executive owes. He examines knowledge-worker productivity, and he writes about the ultimate challenge of managing yourself and meeting the new demands on the individual in a longer working life and an ever-changing workplace.
Incisive, challenging and mind-stretching, Management Challenges for the 21st Century combines the wide practical experience, profound insight, sharp analysis, and enlightened common sense that are the essence of Drucker's writings.

Say something about yourself!
This book compiles several of Drucker's recent articles and interviews. Like all of his work and ideas, it is well worth your time and attention. Drucker is one author who always looks into the future with a realistic perspective, armed with lots of background information, and decades of experience with the business world.
Drucker is a quantum leap ahead of other management writers. His breadth of understanding of organisations and the changing social issues in society put this book in a special class. His views on future trends is very apt and puts much of the changes in the world into context. This is much more than a management book. Highly recommended.
Drucker zooms out of the day to day management challenges to review where this world is going. Very broad. Not centralizing just on business management.
Important information and points of view for any manager and any individual living at this historic time.
