Peter Drucker’s 50-year-old management book is on our TBR list
We’re more “entrepreneurs” than we are “managers” and we don’t much care for Inc magazine’s contributor network (much as we love its staff writers), but “The 50-Year-Old Business Book You Need to Read (or Reread) Right Now” has us wondering whether it’s not time to acquire a copy of Peter Drucker’s The Effective Executive. The 50-year anniversary edition of the book is out now on Amazon and (hopefully) coming soon to a Diwan branch near you.
Management wisdom from the era of typewriters and Mad Men. What could be better? Drucker’s five core principles:
- Managing time
- Choosing what to contribute to the organization
- Knowing where and how to mobilize strength for best effect
- Setting the right priorities
- Knitting all of them together with effective decision-making
