The effective business, Peter Drucker observes, focuses on opportunities rather than problems. How this focus is achieved in order to make the organization prosper and grow is the subject of this companion to his classic work, THE PRACTICE OF MANAGEMENT. Managing for Results shows what the executive decision maker must do to move his enterprise forward. Drucker again employs his particular genius for breaking through conventional outlooks and opening up new perspectives for profits and growth.
This book the author explains is concerned with action rather than understanding, with decisions rather than analysis. It deals with the strategies, needed to transform rapid changes into opportunities to turn the threat of change into productive and profitable action that contributes positively to our society, the economy and the individual.
A classic since its publication in 1954, THE PRACTICE OF MANAGEMENT was the first book to look at management as a whole and being a manager as a separate responsibility. THE PRACTICE OF MANAGEMENT created the discipline of modern management practices. Readable, fundamental, and basic, it remains an essential book for students, aspiring managers, and seasoned professionals.
