The Effective Executive

Written by Peter Drucker, one of the world’s most respected management educators, this book stresses the importance of manager’s capability to get the right things done and how to build the capability. The Effective Executive, a classic management best-seller, identifies five essential skills an effective manager can and must acquire. According to Drucker, they are as follows:

  • 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

The book cites reports from private and public sectors to highlight the skills high-performing managers must have and offers a new perspective to otherwise mundane situations. This book will enable readers to become agile, efficient and result-oriented executives while allowing them to put their creativity and knowledge to use.
