Six classic books on management from business guru Peter Drucker, in pdf format.
Innovation and Entrepreneurship: “This is the first book to present innovation and entrepreneurship as a purposeful and systematic discipline that explains and analyzes the challenges and opportunities of America’s new entrepreneurial economy. Superbly practical, Innovation and Entrepreneurship explains what established businesses, public service institutions, and new ventures need to know and do to succeed in today’s economy” (Amazon).
Management Challenges for the 21st Century: “Drucker discusses how the new paradigms of management have changed and will continue to change our basic assumptions about the practices and principles of management. Forward-looking and forward-thinking, Management Challenges for the 21st Century combines the broad knowledge, wide practical experience, profound insight, sharp analysis, and enlightened common sense that are the essence of Drucker’s writings and ‘landmarks of the managerial profession'” (Harvard Business Review).
Management: Tasks, Responsibilities, Practices: “Management is an organized body of knowledge. ‘This book,’ in Peter Drucker’s words, ‘tries to equip the manager with the understanding, the thinking, the knowledge and the skills for today’sand also tomorrow’s jobs.’ This management classic has been developed and tested during more than thirty years of teaching management in universities, in executive programs and seminars and through the author’s close work with managers as a consultant for large and small businesses, government agencies, hospitals and schools. Drucker discusses the tools and techniques of successful management practice that have been proven effective, and he makes them meaningful and easily accessible” (Amazon).
The Effective Executive: “‘The measure of the executive,’ Peter F. Drucker reminds us, is the ability to ‘get the right things done.’ This usually involves doing what other people have overlooked as well as avoiding what is unproductive. Intelligence, imagination, and knowledge may all be wasted in an executive job without the acquired habits of mind that mold them into results.
“Drucker identifies five practices essential to business effectiveness that can, and must, be learned:
* Managing time
* Choosing what to contribute to the organization
* Knowing where and how to mobilize strength for best effect
* Setting the right priorities
* Knitting all of them together with effective decision-making
“Ranging widely through the annals of business and government, Peter F. Drucker demonstrates the distinctive skill of the executive and offers fresh insights into old and seemingly obvious business situations” (Amazon).
The Essential Drucker: “Father of modern management, social commentator, and preeminent business philosopher, Peter F. Drucker analyzed economics and society for more than sixty years. Now for readers everywhere who are concerned with the ways that management practices and principles affect the performance of organizations, individuals, and society, there is The Essential Drucker an invaluable compilation of essential materials from the works of a management legend.
Containing twenty-six core selections, The Essential Drucker covers the basic principles and concerns of management and its problems, challenges, and opportunities, giving managers, executives, and professionals the tools to perform the tasks that the economy and society of tomorrow will demand of them” (Amazon).
The Five Most Important Questions You Will Ever Ask About Your Organization: “With Peter Drucker’s five essential questions and the help of five of today’s thought leaders, this little book will challenge readers to take a close look at the very heart of their organizations and what drives them. A tool for self-assessment and transformation, answering these five questions will fundamentally change the way you work, helping you lead your organization to an exceptional level of performance.
“Peter Drucker’s five questions are:
* What is our Mission? with Jim Collins
* Who is our Customer? with Phil Kotler
* What does the Customer Value? with Jim Kouzes
* What are our Results? with Judith Rodin

“These essential questions, grounded in Peter Drucker’s theories of management, will take readers on a exploration of organizational and personal self-discovery, giving them a means to assess how to be–how to develop quality, character, mind-set, values and courage. The questions lead to action. By asking these questions, readers can focus on why they are doing what they are doing in their work, and how to do it better. Designed for today’s busy professionals, this brief, clear and accessible book will challenge readers to ask these provocative questions and it will stimulate spirited discussions and action within any organization, inspiring positive change and new levels of excellence, helping all to envision the future of theirs’ or any organization” (Amazon).
