Peter Drucker: Shaping the Managerial Mind--How the World's Foremost Management Thinker Crafted the Essentials of Business Success by John E. Flaherty

A Definitive Overview of Peter Drucker's Contributions to Management "Flaherty has accomplished the impossible: making a systematic thinker out of me. I am particularly impressed by his skill in balancing chronology and themes, and that over a sixty--year time span. I have learned a great deal about my work from this book." ----Peter F. Drucker "Peter F. Drucker is the organizational thought leader of the twentieth century. For the sake of our economy, our community, and our society, every citizen needs to be familiar with his work. John Flaherty's book is both an intellectual adventure and a practical guide to Peter Drucker's thinking. Peter Drucker: Shaping the Managerial Mind should be in the book bag of everyone hoping to lead change or build an effective organization." ----Frances Hesselbein, chairman of the board, The Peter F. Drucker Foundation for Nonprofit Management "At last! This much--needed comprehensive review of Drucker's thought will prove invaluable for those seeking a course in Drucker 101." ----Sally Helgesen, author of The Web of Inclusion: Building a New Architecture for Great Organizations "There is no doubt that Peter Drucker is our most significant contributor to the concept of modern management. There is also no doubt that John Flaherty has produced our most significant analysis of Drucker's contributions to date. The scope of this effort is extraordinary." ----Leonard A. Schlesinger, senior vice president for development and professor of sociology and public policy, Brown University To leaders, students, and admirers everywhere, he is "the father of modern management" and "the man who invented corporate America." According to Forbes magazine, he is still "the youngest managerial mind" after sixty prolific years of writing, lecturing, and consulting. He is Peter F. Drucker, the world's most widely read and influential thinker on business and management. While there have been several books about Peter Drucker and his life, this is the first to present a comprehensive synthesis and in--depth analysis of his works and insights on management. Drawing from over forty years as a student, follower, and friend, John E. Flaherty has created a definitive account of Drucker's managerial achievements.
