    I feel the most important factor for me to buy read this book was the fact, it was written by Drucker, whom some refer to as the father of modern management, and the tittle was about the future challenges And also, my initiation to this book through the pre published version of Chap 6 in HBR Now, I beg to differ from many that have to say this book is easy to understand This was one of the few books that I had to try vv hard to keep my flow and concentration One reason, I could attribut I feel the most important factor for me to buy read this book was the fact, it was written by Drucker, whom some refer to as the father of modern management, and the tittle was about the future challenges And also, my initiation to this book through the pre published version of Chap 6 in HBR Now, I beg to differ from many that have to say this book is easy to understand This was one of the few books that I had to try vv hard to keep my flow and concentration One reason, I could attribute reading Chap 6 from this book is this isn t for my personality, this isn t written in the style where in I can perform at my best or could this book be overloaded with mumbo jumbo of management terms which isn t easy to comprehend No doubt you are to gain a swift knowledge about history of management, fascinating insights into some of the key business leaders and politicians of the last century, etc This book meets its objective in making the reader rethink the basic assumptions we hold, makes us aware of what the future has As the author himself writes as part of the introduction this is not a book of PREDICTIONS, not a book about FUTURE it deals with exclusively with TOMORROW S hot issues The challenges and issues discussed in it are already with us in every one of the developed countries So this should have universal appeal, to everyone connected to the 21st century and it comes from DRUCKER himself The book essentially is a collection of six essays on future management issues organization and individuals need to address Management s New Paradigms Basic assumptions that underline the management as a discipline are proved to have outlived their usefulness Management is not just restricted to business alone anythan say medicine is Obstetrics PP 8 So management is as relevant in non business as in business But of course there is difference in the application between different organization based on their need There can t be ONE right organization structure Each structure has their own strengths and limitations for specific applications So organization structure is just a tool for making people productive PP 11 Similarly there can t be ONE right way to mange people Individuals have to be managed in the way they can perform at their best The issue is not managing people the issue should be to manage for performance PP 21 Like wise four assumptions on the management practice to have outlived their purpose Neither technology nor end user is linked to any one product or service The foundation for management should be customer s perceived values and their decision on the distribution of their disposable income The scope of managing has to move away for legal bounds, while encompassing the entire process focusing on results and performance across the entire economic chain PP 34 Management and national boundaries are no longer congruent hence the bounds of management practice has to be defined operationally rather than politically PP 36 37 Management has to move out of the bounds of inside and concentrate on the non customers to improve the results and performance of the organization.Strategy The New Certainties Drucker contends, there are five social and political certainties that will shape business strategy in future The collapsing birthrate in the developed world Shifts in distribution of disposable income As a result of the above point strategy shift, organization stakeholders invest having a in mind a in time frame of 30 40 years, contrary tot he current need to short immediate term In addition organization need to attract and retain good talents to last as long as 3 40 years profitably Hence the term performance has to be redefined to meet the above criteria PP 60 61 Low labor costs can no longer give competitive advantage So the only way to gain advantage is to perform at standards set by the each industry s leader anyplace in the world PP 62 63 As discussed earlier, national boundaries and their economy can t restrict the scope of organization business But political boundaries are realties to limit your business Hence we need to accept incongruence between economic and political reality PP 63 The Change Leader In this essay Drucker proves many of us right by stating One cannot manage change, one can only be ahead of it And states being a change leader would be the biggest challenge in this century He provides a roadmap to become a change leader through what policies we need to make for the future How to anticipate changes What is the right way to introduce change and finally how to balance change and continuity PP 73 Information Challenges To be a leader you need to focus on the meaning of information not technology, speed, etc The IT revolution what we are all hyped up about is about the revolution in the concept as to how individuals are to use information to improve performance It is definitely not about computers Internet is just a means for this change.Knowledge Worker Productivity In the current century wealth and asset of an organization would be defined in terms of its knowledge worker and their productivity So the factors contributing are Identifying what hampers performance, they need to have independence accountable , continuous learning innovation, OPTIMUMM product service quality and finally a mind set change to treat knowledge workers as a corporate asset rather than as cost PP 142 Future is for what Drucker calls as technologist whose job scope involves both knowledge related and manual work PP 149 Managing Oneself Finally this last essay provides tips on the responsibilities that knowledge workers must assume in managing themselves and their careers The central thesis of this essay is due to declining birth rate, affluence, etc an average knowledge worker may not retire at a set age, as was the case with manual workers They tend to work through late at their age and would outlive the life of their employing organization To wrap up this is review, as Drucker in his introduction calls this book a call of action That is read a chapter at a time, ask what do these challenges mean for my organization and me think through what actions to take to turn the challenges into opportunities. Hence don t expect solutions of the hot issues of the future

    My first Drucker, so I didn t know what to expect He s spot on with the knowledge worker concepts and how different these types of jobs and careers are turning out as opposed to 20th century models I didn t fully understand some of the accounting financial management content, but I really enjoyed it when Drucker pulled in historical examples of companies and global leaders He s got a weird editing layout style, like some paragraphs are indented and some words in all caps, couldn t quite fig My first Drucker, so I didn t know what to expect He s spot on with the knowledge worker concepts and how different these types of jobs and careers are turning out as opposed to 20th century models I didn t fully understand some of the accounting financial management content, but I really enjoyed it when Drucker pulled in historical examples of companies and global leaders He s got a weird editing layout style, like some paragraphs are indented and some words in all caps, couldn t quite figure that out But it s a sharp analysis, sort of aintellectual and historically based version of Seth Godin s Linchpin, now that I think of it only b c I just read that book last month

    I have to rate this as a 5 again for Drucker Peter Drucker is visionary and intuitively prophetic in his style and arguments I often find myself being mildly amazed by the strongly relevant perceptiveness he brings out in his writing and wishing I were able to have such insight and perspicacity in my own reasoning and thinking As I alluded to with the other Drucker book I reviewed on this website The Essential Drucker , I think he is worth reading even if you are not very interested in manag I have to rate this as a 5 again for Drucker Peter Drucker is visionary and intuitively prophetic in his style and arguments I often find myself being mildly amazed by the strongly relevant perceptiveness he brings out in his writing and wishing I were able to have such insight and perspicacity in my own reasoning and thinking As I alluded to with the other Drucker book I reviewed on this website The Essential Drucker , I think he is worth reading even if you are not very interested in management theory as a subject the reason being that the quality of his perspective and reasoning methods make it worth reading him purely for the standard of these methods alone

    The last chapter on managing oneself is very good Crux of the book over the past few years, and especially over the coming years, the nature of work is changing.Knowledge workers, flexible work, difficult to measure work, the role of the boss and subordinate, loss of manual labour, and the importance of managing oneself to become better at work and life.The current structure of most organisations is based on the factory work and the office work and that foundation is changing Difficult The last chapter on managing oneself is very good Crux of the book over the past few years, and especially over the coming years, the nature of work is changing.Knowledge workers, flexible work, difficult to measure work, the role of the boss and subordinate, loss of manual labour, and the importance of managing oneself to become better at work and life.The current structure of most organisations is based on the factory work and the office work and that foundation is changing Difficult to read But the last chapter won me

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here I had managed a small team of developers in IT department It was a little overwhelming and I didn t quite enjoy it The management concepts covered in this book are still eye opening to me I wish I had read this book five years ago Maybe I could be a better manager or have chosen a different career path.The best part of this book I think is The Second Half of Your Life in Chapter 6 Managing Oneself It is something I can apply to my life now.Great book
