Book description
This important and timely book by a leading management expert concerns the immediate future of business, society, and the economy. WE are, says Drucker, entering a new economic era with new trends, new markets, new currencies, new principles, new technologies and new institutions. How will managers and management deal with these new realities? What ate hter opportunities and problems? What are the necessary strategies and practices? This book, in Druckers' words, "Is concerned with action rather than understanding, with decisions rather than analysis ... a book for hte decision -maker whether in the management of a business or in the management of public service institutions."
Drucker starts with teh fundamentals - inflation and liquidity, product ivies, and costs. He then covers areas of chance such as population structured and population dynamics, production sharing and market control, consumer products and the labor force. And he covers the often conflicting forces of integration and splintering in the world economy, the emergence of the "employee society", and metamorphosis of political order and political process. With penetrating insight Drucker discusses a variety of subjects from mandatory retirement age to new consumer markets, a misleading unemployment figures, new personnel policies, and job needs in developing and developed countries.
In contrast to the continuity that made planing fashionable and possible in the twenty-five years after World War II, we are entering a time of turbulence, a period of rapid innovation and fast and radical structural shifts. This book 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 society, economy and the individual.
