Peter Ferdinand Drucker
Managing Oneself (Harvard Business Review Classics)

We live in an age of unprecedented opportunity: with ambition, drive, and talent, you can rise to the top of your chosen profession regardless of where you started out But with opportunity comes responsibility Companies today aren’t managing their knowledge workers careers Instead, you must be your own chief executive officer That means it’s up to you to carve out your place in the world and know when to change course And it’s up to you to keep yourself engaged and productive during a career that may span some 50 years In Managing Oneself, Peter Drucker explains how to do it The keys: Cultivate a deep understanding of yourself by identifying your most valuable strengths and most dangerous weaknesses; Articulate how you learn and work with others and what your most deeply held values are; and Describe the type of work environment where you can make the greatest contribution Only when you operate with a combination of your strengths and self-knowledge can you achieve true and lasting excellence Managing Oneself identifies the probing questions you need to ask to gain the insights essential for taking charge of your career Peter Drucker was a writer, teacher, and consultant His 34 books have been published in more than 70 languages He founded the Peter F Drucker Foundation for Nonprofit Management, and counseled 13 governments, public services institutions, and major corporations

Encyclopedia of Management Theory

In discussing a management topic, scholars, educators, practitioners, and the media often toss out the name of a theorist (Taylor, Simon, Weber) or make a sideways reference to a particular theory (bureaucracy, total quality management, groupthink) and move on, as if assuming their audience possesses the necessary background to appreciate and integrate the reference This is often far from the case Individuals are frequently forced to seek out a hodgepodge of sources varying in quality and presentation to provide an overview of a particular idea This work is designed to serve as a core reference for anyone interested in the essentials of contemporary management theory Drawing together a team of international scholars, it examines the global landscape of the key theories and the theorists behind them, presenting them in the context needed to understand their strengths and weaknesses to thoughtfully apply them In addition to interpretations of long-established theories, it also offers essays on cutting-edge research as one might find in a handbook And, like an unabridged dictionary, it provides concise, to-the-point definitions of key concepts, ideas, schools, and figures

Guide to Managing Growth: Strategies for Turning Success Into Bigger Success

Successful and ambitious organisations recognise the ‘growth imperative’ but are often insufficiently aware of what might threaten continued success Growth means change What worked last year won’t necessarily work next year – an organisation that wants to manage growth successfully will need to change things that aren’t yet broken
