Managing in a Time of Great Change
This volume, a reissue, brings together 25 articles and two interviews with the late Drucker, a writer, teacher, and consultant, on how to manage in a rapidly changing environment. Drucker argues that managers must understand the impact of what has already happened (rather than predicting what might happen), discussing management, the information revolution, the world economy, and society and government, and questions such as how to keep a business from becoming obsolete, how to use information for a competitive advantage, how new markets and industries shift the centers of power in the global economy, and how to reinvent government for a new age. Other topics include teams, family businesses, China's growth markets, nonprofits, and gender roles. Articles were written between 1991 and 1995. There is no bibliography.
