Peter Drucker -
The Science of Management
by Enrique De Argaez

In the worlds of business and academia, many regard Peter Drucker as the founding father of the study of management. He wrote 39 books, including the landmark titles The Practice of Management (1954) and The Effective Executive (1967). He published his first book, The End of Economic Man, in 1939. His works had a profound impact on how people around the world organize themselves in the realms of business, government and civil society.

He predicted many of the major developments of the late 20th century, including privatization and decentralization; the rise of Japan to economic world power; the decisive importance of marketing and innovation; and the emergence of the information society with its necessity of lifelong learning.

Peter Drucker passed away in 2005 at the age of 95, leaving behind a great legacy. He showed integrity, rigour and profoundness in all his works. Peter Drucker was someone that envisioned the future of management for the twenty-first century.

Peter Drucker influenced management thinking like few others. Peter Drucker quotes are short, to the point, and will surely give you cause to think. Here are some of his quotes:

"Most of what we call management consists of making it difficult for people to get their jobs done."

"There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all."

"All one has to do is to learn to say "no" if an activity contributes nothing."

"Time is the scarcest resource: and unless it is managed, nothing else can be managed."

"The aim of marketing is to know and understand the customer so well that the product or service fits her and sells itself."

"It takes far less energy to move from first-rate performance to excellence than it does to move from incompetence to mediocrity."

"Use feedback analysis to identify your strengths. Then go to work on improving your strengths. Identify and eliminate bad habits that hinder the full development of your strengths. Figure out what you should do and do it. Finally, decide what you should not do."

"Know your strengths. Apply them to areas in your organisation where you can make a contribution. Make sure your values and the values of the organisation are compatible."

Besides his quotes, there are many Peter Drucker videos archived at You Tube. Here is one regarding corporate teamwork. After this short 3 minute video ends, you can select other fine Peter Drucker videos from the You Tube collection.

We could keep writing about Peter Drucker and never end. We recommend that you see his videos and read his books. You will get a first class education about the science of management, from one of the best management consultants that ever lived.
