    I'm a total business book nerd- but I really enjoyed this one. Some of my favorite quotes:If communication fits in with the aspirations, the values, the purposes of the recipient, it is powerful. If it goes against his aspirations, his values, his motivations, it is likely to be received at all or at best to be resisted.Waste as little effort as possible on improving areas of low competence""commitment to contribution is commitment to responsible effectiveness" Most suppliers don't think of pric [...]

    The plain-spoken stark insights in this book made me feel like I was reading philosophy although the subject matter is management. He really has pioneered a theoretical discipline of "management" and I found his thinking to be both pragmatically informative AND intellectually stimulating. Anyone interested in Organizational Behaviour or Management, or perhaps even economic organizational thought, should get a good dose of Peter Drucker--and I felt like I got that in this excellent compilation. H [...]

    Никогда ни перестану удивляться, как можно столь сложную дисциплину, такую как менеджмент, сделать одновременно столь понятной и доступной и при этом углубиться до его основания, к самому его фундаменту. Питер Друкер на всю жизнь мне будет лучшим примером того как предста [...]

The music is timeless and so is the business advice of Peter Drucker.Here are a hand-selected dozen of The Greatest Hits you will experience during this journey through six decades of mastering the art and science of management:There is only one valid definition of business purpose: to create a customer.Because its purpose it to create a customer, the business enterprise has two -- [...]

    The chapters in this book come from books and essays that were previously published. The preface identifies where the chapters came from.I finished reading "The Essential Drucker" today. I started reading it over a year ago and my reading in it languished. During that period of not reading it, I managed to pick up a second copy at a used book store. Even though I wasn't currently reading it, I have found his writings to be solid. Then, a few weeks ago I picked it up and began reading in earnest. [...]

    What to say about a book trying to summarize the essentials of Peter Drucker's thinking and writing? Maybe this: if you read only one book about business in your whole life, read this one.It's not written in the typical, upbeat and hands-on style one expects from business books these days; it is, quite the contrary, a very dense, thoughtful and hard-to-digest glimpse into many areas of business, starting with management within an enterprise, switching over to the role of the individual in the en [...]

    I don't think I gave this book a fair shake. I don't think I was focusing on it very well. It was just really boring. Read Innovation and Entrepreneurship. That book rules.Quotes:"The fundamental task of management remains the same: to make people capable of joint performance through common goals, cmmon values, the right structure, and the training and development they need to perform and to respond to change. But the very meaning of this task has changed, if only because the performance of mana [...]

    The Essential Drucker" is one of those books that is tough to review because it covers so much great content with such a deep level of insight. What's most remarkable is that he covers the huge subject of management in a 350 page book but it's so packed full of information that it seems like the book should have been more like 1,000 pages. He covers subjects such as "Dimensions of Management" (Mission, Worker Achievement, and Social Responsibilities), transparency and responsibility in organizat [...]


  • Bob Wallner

    I know that Drucker is one of the foremost authorities on 20th century Management. I know that his contemporaries consider Drucker a genius. I personally simply have a hard time following his writings, and this book was no exception. The Essential Drucker compiles a "Reader's Digest Version" from his top works on management and leadership. Covering topics such as his famous predictions on knowledge work economy to the entrepreneurial spirit of the future employee. Drucker dives into managing and [...]


  • Tyson Titensor

    The person who recommended this book gave me a list of chapters he found worthwhile. I decided to ignore his advice and just read the whole thing. I probably should have just read the recommended chapters as some sections were much better than others. Fortunately, it's easy to skim through the slow parts. Worthwhile for sure.

    read this every year.


  • Charlane Brady

    Full of experience about people in business, in managing a business he is right, one leads people as a manager! A must read if you are in any business.

    Okay breathe, whew Spring semester down and I can say goodbye to Perter F. Drucker, the man whose sixty years of management experience has dominated my life since January. I have read, cited, quoted and paraphrased this man so much I feel like I know him, or definitely how he feels about management from starting a business, hiring, planning, testing, implementing innovation, the manager as an individual and how they lead an organization. I can start and go through each chapter but I won’t—LO [...]

    Peter Drucker has a certain reputation in the business of business philosophy, and The Essential Drucker (TED) doesn’t disappoint. These are the greatest hits from decades of writing: an eminently quotable collection of practical advice and abstract philosophy for the humans powering the knowledge economy.The balance of the wisdom that Drucker dispenses is aimed at practical steps that managers–and in the knowledge economy, everyone is a manager–can employ to futher their work. Focus objec [...]


  • Elliard Shimaala

    There’s a certain reverence with which I approach Drucker’s work because I consider him the godfather of modern management thinking. I first came across his work in his book the Practice of Management published in 1954 and my thoughts then, they still hold true even now, were that that book was going to be my only reference on management. I’ve now read Drucker’s Essential Writings which span over sixty years of his work and my admiration for the man has grown more.The Essential Writings [...]

    Quotes from the book:-Not to innovate is the single largest reason for the decline of existing organizations. Not to know how to manage is the single largest reason for the failure of a new ventures.-the most productive innovation is a different product or service creating a new potential satisfaction, rather than an improvement.-innovation may be finding a new uses for old products. A sales man who succeeds in selling refrigerators to Eskimos to prevent food from freezing would be as much of an [...]

    If you have read other books be Peter Drucker, you would find the same central ideas:Business doesn't exist for profit, profit is only a constraint. Any organization is a social organ.Personal effectiveness principles: find your strength, concentrate on your strength, know how you learn and work the best, decide on your contribution.The scarcest resource in any organization are performing people. Give job to people depending on the task. Ask yourself, "What kind of abilities do I need here?"Look [...]

  • Lavanya

    Took 18 pages of notes on this highly readable book. Such brilliantly relevant insights on the fundamentals of management that every knowledge worker must know, whether in business, government, or non-profit. Drucker speaks to everyone - from the manager striving to create an environment that fuels innovation to the blue-collar worker contending with his/her sudden fall from prominence in the knowledge society. This book should be compulsory


  • Tim

    Overall very good. The last section and chapters on society however, are a sort of horrible time-capsule of the early 90s and I found them hugely problematic owing to the substantial world changes in the 24 years since the original publication.


  • Jonathan Gassman

    the granddaddy of leadership and management covers it all. The book captures so much of his brilliance as well as tips and strategies. its a great resource and reference when questions pop up. almost ten years later and his thought are timeless. I love his books


  • Jon Swanson

    Dated but still goodA lot of the material seems common sense, but there’s a lot of wisdom in the way these practices and ways of thinking are codified that I hadn’t realized utile reading.


  • Lau

    A bit of a let down. Very once over lightly. I think I expected more based on other things I've read of his. Think I'll stick to the full unabridged versions of him.


  • Simon Hohenadl

    This book couldn't keep my attention. It seemed unstructured to me. I stopped listening to it after about a tenth of the length.


  • Fernando

    Muito bom relembrar os ensinamentos do mestre. Muito bom também quando ele admite que mudou de opinião sobre alguns assuntos, ao longo de sua jornada.


  • daniel dirnfeld

    Anything written by drucker is very educational andyoy really learm.


  • Jim Jones

    I'm normally a big fan of Drucker's work - but this collection was so dense and theoretical, I had a hard time getting through it. I usually find lots of practical lessons in his books that I can apply to real-world management. This book, not so much. I bailed out about 2/3rds of the way through - it was too difficult of a read for me.


  • Juste

    Essential is good but i would recommand to read the originals books in order not to miss essential pieces of informations that you Will anyway try to grasp later if you appreciate drucker.To me essential May be seen as a starting point.


  • Quadradix

    I haven’t paid much attention to Peter Drucker previously, but I must say that I was impressed by his thinking in this book. Since it is a compilation of his writings, the excerpts span the years 1966 – 2001 and yet I didn’t find anything that I thought was out of date. Most of it seemed remarkably current, such as the focus on strengths, the identification of knowledge organisations with biological rather than mechanical systems (complexity theory), the role of social entrepreneurship and [...]
