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.
"Drucker explains why management practices as we know them...have lost their utility...and, lastly, how individuals can try to manage themselves in the years to come." (BusinessWeek)
