Description

A commemorative edition of Peter F. Drucker's timeless classic work on leadership and management, with a foreword by Jim Collins.

What makes an effective executive?

For decades Peter F. Drucker was widely regarded as "the dean of this country's business and management philosophers" (Wall Street Journal). In this concise and brilliant work, he looks to the most influential position in management - the executive.

The measure of the executive, Drucker reminds us, is the ability to "get the right things done". This usually involves doing what other people have overlooked as well as avoiding what is unproductive. Intelligence, imagination, and knowledge may all be wasted in an executive job without the acquired habits of mind that mold them into results.

Drucker identifies five practices essential to business effectiveness that can - and must - be mastered:

  • 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

Ranging across the annals of business and government, Drucker demonstrates the distinctive skill of the executive and offers fresh insights into old and seemingly obvious business situations.

Narrator hard to listen to

I found it extremely hard to follow due to the narrator. It is impossible for me to judge the context as the narrator couldn't keep my attention . The effective manager was much more easy to follow

The Best Professional Self improvement

Very well read, printed version is less organized. If you have a degree or more than 5 years of work experience, and if you work for someone or have someone working for you then you need to read/listen to this book.

Highly Recommended

This book changed the way i live. Instead of mechanically taking care of my to-do list like I used to, I now try to do what must be done next. I love how Drucker emphasize that we should make a difference, not just settle for making a living or strive to be the best at something just for the glory. He tells the characteristics that effective executives have and uses colorful examples of historical figures and companies to illustrate his points, which makes his book interesting to listen to. Jim Collins and Tim Andres Pabon also did a good job at narrating (varied intonation). Overall, I would highly recommend this book to anyone of all ages and background!

Life changing

I can not recommend enough this book. I just got an executive position, I thought what being effective meant and what it meant for my team members this book made me think again about and start practicing the principles stated in the book religiously, training myself to be an effective executive. If you are an executive or want to grow into one this book is one that is worth the investment of time to absorb and digest. In terms of the audible version, great listen, I liked the pace of the reader fast but clear with a good pacing to digest topics, the foreword by Jim Collins was also good to get you on the mood for the rest of the book. Overall great great investment.

still relevant in today's business environment

it is mind-blowing to believe how the principles covered in this book still apply in today's business environment. this book was written about 50 years ago and Executives back then and today still struggle with managing their own time. really appreciated learning some Tactical processes from Drucker.

No a lot of content

This book took a lot of words and way too many stories to basically say, “don’t forget the humanity in other people.” I don’t feel it helped me at all.

boring

I cannot recommend this book, very boring. I was a bit dissapointed because Peter Drucker is so famous, however this book is not worth reading.
