Drucker was, of course, the dean of management consultants, a man who clearly saw into the intricacies of marshalling and directing resources toward both commercial and social goals.
For those not familiar with Drucker, the one page digests provide an excellent, if out of context, introduction to his style.
Drucker was truly unique. He saw the past, present and future. His recent death was a loss, but fortunately his wisdom lives on in books like The Daily Drucker.
In my book, Mastering The Management Buckets: 20 Critical Competencies for Leading Your Business or Non-profit, "The Drucker Bucket" honors Peter Drucker, the father of modern management, who was welcomed to his heavenly home in 2005, just a few days shy of his 96th birthday. His seminal book, Management: Tasks, Responsibilities, Practices, runs 839 pages. Here's the Drucker Bucket core competency:
"We are privileged to be leaders and managers and we steward that privilege by being lifelong learners and practitioners in the art of management. We don't just give lip service to management--we are disciplined students of great leadership and management thinkers like Peter Drucker, Ken Blanchard and others."
I encourage my clients to read at least one book by Peter Drucker every year. If you're in management, why would you not want to learn from the management guru? To dip your toe in the Drucker Bucket, read The Daily Drucker.
Bestselling author Bob Buford, who graciously wrote the foreword to my book, mentions Drucker in the foreword, "Peter always said, `The purpose of management is not to make the Church more businesslike, but more Church-like." Drucker was a gift to all of us. This is the perfect book.
This is a good book and I recommend it for all new and seasoned leaders and managers. We can all benefit from the points made and use them in our own development.
Make the time to purchase it, read it, study it, and apply it. The book is not an end in itself, only a good beginning. What you do with it is what counts.
