Peter F. Drucker is my management guru. His book is my bible for office work. See my review on his ‘consolidated book’ : The Essential Drucker, here.

Management Guru

Company cultures are like country cultures. Never try to change one. Try, instead, to work with what you’ve got.

Follow effective action with quiet reflection. From the quiet reflection will come even more effective action.

Knowledge has to be improved, challenged, and increased constantly, or it vanishes.

Rank does not confer privilege or give power. It imposes responsibility.

The best way to predict the future is to create it.

The most important thing in communications is hearing what isn’t said.

There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all.

Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked. Leadership is defined by results not attributes.

The purpose of business is to create a customer.

Management means, in the last analysis, the substitution of thought for brawn and muscle; of knowledge for folkways and superstition; and for cooperation for force.
It means the substitution of responsibility for obedience to rank; and of authority of performance for the authority of rank.
