    • Management Challenges of 21 st Century
  • Ideas through Druckers Writings
    • A profound skepticism about macroeconomic theory. Drucker contended that economists of all schools fail to explain significant aspects of modern economies.
    • A desire to make everything as simple as possible. According to Drucker, corporations tend to produce too many products, hire employees they don't need (when a better solution would be contracting out ), and expand into economic sectors that they should stay out of.
    • The need for "planned abandonment." Corporations as well as governments have a natural human tendency to cling to "yesterday's successes" rather than seeing when they are no longer useful.
    • The lasting contribution of the "father of scientific management ", Frederick Winslow Taylor . Although Drucker had little experience with the analysis of blue-collar work (he spent his career analyzing managerial work), he credited Taylor with originating the seminally important idea that work can be broken down, analyzed, and improved.
    • He wrote extensively about Management by objectives
    • A company's primary responsibility is to serve its customers. Profit is not the primary goal.
  • Contributions made
    • Druckers primary contribution is not a single idea, but rather an entire body of work that has one gigantic advantage: nearly all of it is essentially right. Drucker has an uncanny ability to develop insights about the workings of the social world, and to later be proved right by history
  • The timeline
    • It was Drucker who introduced the idea of decentralization -- in the 1940s -- which became a bedrock principle for virtually every large organization in the world.
    • He was the first to assert -- in the 1950s -- that workers should be treated as assets, not as liabilities to be eliminated .
    • He originated the view of the corporation as a human community -- again, in the 1950s -- built on trust and respect for the worker and not just a profit-making machine, a perspective that won Drucker an almost godlike reverence among the Japanese
  • The timeline.Contd
    • He first made clear -- still the '50s -- that there is "no business without a customer," a simple notion that ushered in a new marketing mind-set.
    • He argued in the 1960s -- long before others -- for the importance of substance over style, for institutionalized practices over charismatic, cult leaders.
    • And it was Drucker again who wrote about the contribution of knowledge workers -- in the 1970s -- long before anyone knew or understood how knowledge would trump raw material as the essential capital of the New Economy.
  • Some more insights from the oracle
    • Drucker and MBO
    • A manager's primary task is to manage for results by translating corporate objectives into departmental, group and individual measures of performance.
    • At least once every five years every form should be put on trial for its life .
  • Drucker and Marketing
    • His most famous book is The Practice of Management, published in 1954.
    • Three questions that every company seeking to establish a brand must ask itself:
    • What is our business?
    • Who is our customer?
    • What does our customer consider valuable?
    • What is the point of bringing a 200 pound body downtown when all you want of it is only 8 pound brain?
  • I am more an insultant than a consultantI scold people for a fee.
    • Marketing should have just one concern the customer.
    • Consider this: The purpose of business is not to make a sale, but to make and keep a customer.
    • The aim of marketing is to know and understand the customer so well the product or service fits him and sells itself.
    • Best of all: "Marketing is the whole business seen from the customer's point of view."
