Modern Management


Peter Drucker has long been recognized as the major influencer on modern business management. From the Harvard Business School:

What do effective leaders have in common? They get the right things done in the right ways – by following eight simple rules:

  • Ask what needs to be done
  • Ask what’s right for the enterprise
  • Develop action plans
  • Take responsibility for decisions
  • Take responsibility for communicating
  • Focus on opportunities, not problems
  • Run productive meetings
  • Think and say “We” not “I”

These eight rules ought to be laminated and used every day….they are as valid now as they were when Drucker wrote them.

One that stands out: Think “We”
