On the shoulders of giants: Drucker on management

Abstract [en]

For this issue, we turn to Peter F Drucker, the father of management for a basic understanding of management. Specifically, we look at his assertions concerning the functions of a business and the role knowledge players have in these businesses. Clearly, these topics are of interest and importance because executives continually find themselves redefining their businesses in terms of available resources and competition, depending more and more upon knowledge workers. The material is also put into some perspective with regard to our own research findings and recommendations made for today's managers or executives.
