Who was Peter Drucker?
Peter Ferdinand Drucker was an Austrian-born American management consultant, educator, and author, whose writings contributed to the philosophical and practical foundations of the modern business corporation. He was also a leader in the development of management education, and he invented the concept known as management by objectives.
- The entrepreneur always searches for change, responds to it, and exploits it as an opportunity.
- The honest work of yesterday has lost its social status, its social esteem.
- The purpose of a business is to create a customer.
- Knowledge has to be improved, challenged, and increased constantly, or it vanishes.
- Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.
- Until we can manage TIME, we can manage nothing else.
- What you have to do and the way you have to do it is incredibly simple. Whether you are willing to do it, that's another matter.
- There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all.
- Business has only two functions -- marketing and innovation.
- Leadership is not magnetic personality--that can just as well be a glib tongue. It is not making friends and influencing people --that is flattery. Leadership is lifting a person's vision to higher sights, the raising of a person's performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.
