Description

A commemorative edition of Peter F. Drucker's timeless classic work on leadership and management, with a foreword by Jim Collins.

What makes an effective executive?

For decades Peter F. Drucker was widely regarded as "the dean of this country's business and management philosophers" (Wall Street Journal). In this concise and brilliant work, he looks to the most influential position in management - the executive.

The measure of the executive, Drucker reminds us, is the ability to "get the right things done". This usually involves doing what other people have overlooked as well as avoiding what is unproductive. Intelligence, imagination, and knowledge may all be wasted in an executive job without the acquired habits of mind that mold them into results.

Drucker identifies five practices essential to business effectiveness that can - and must - be mastered:

  • 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

Ranging across the annals of business and government, Drucker demonstrates the distinctive skill of the executive and offers fresh insights into old and seemingly obvious business situations.

Not exactly what a expected

The beginning was strong - Jim Collins has done a great job in foreword, but than it went from level 10 to level ...4. The narrator was very boring and made it really hard to focus on the boring topic to begin with.

The book itself reminds me a lecture from the old professor, who has a wealth of knowledge but has hard time delivering it. Some of the example provided were very good, but they were very rare and sporadic.

This book should be taken a pieces and rearranged and put together in different order with better organized examples.

Overall book provides very good knowledge and understanding of management and how to be an executive, but fails to do it in efficient manner and in order to get 100% out of this book you have to come back to it 2 or 3 times to get last pieces of the puzzle - something I am not thrilled to do after boring 8 hours of listening.

Outdated Text

Super outdated, and difficult to follow due to the outdated case studies that just seem irrelevant. I feel like this is the perfect example of finding a conclusion and manipulating a scenario to prove the point. Key principles are there if you can find them. It's painful to listen too and strangely enough I found that I learned the most from the last chapter which basically sums up all the chapters in plain English that's easy to understand.

Solid foundations for any knowledge worker

This book felt like an extended cut of "Managing Oneself" with much more emphasis on decisions and teams. Had I read the books in a different order or format this probably would have been 5 stars.

The forward does a great job summarizing the entire book. made this special edition worth it.

Many topics were covered from deciding how to contribute, making decisions and managing your time. Each has stories and examples throughout.

The advice is timeless, but grounded in stories from the time it was written. This is made apparent through hints at what a world could be with computers which are all bang on. I like it as it helps the book cut deeper into what makes to leaders work.

Would highly recommend.

Boring

I usually love these types of books. But I couldn't get through this one. So monotone, and boring, dry.

Boring and outdated

Couldn’t make beyond 30 minutes. Very boring voice and prescriptive “manual” how to be a good executive. Had higher expectations.

Must read

I try to read this every few years. This is my 3rd in the last five or so years. What is remarkable is that each time I'm reminded of better ways to improve my management skills, to be more effective in the current challenges I'm facing. Form innovation to communication Druker provides insight on how to achieve outcomes.

Much needed insight and instruction - loved it!

I almost didnt get this because of some negative comments on Audible. To my delight - the book was one of the best I’ve ever listened to. Full of applicable wisdom from an old-school genius in effectiveness for executives. Truth doesn't change with time. So the truth in these lessons holds up, even if the illustrations used are a few decades old. If you listen for the guiding principles, and are comfortable thinking through their application - you will find some valuable advice in the Effective Executive.

Timeless and powerful

I've read many books about business and management, but this one really stands out. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to step up their accountability and effectiveness. As someone who has long prided himself on being a hard worker, I now realize that working hard is not enough. Effectiveness is the aim. Powerful tools and mindset within!

Life changing

I can not recommend enough this book. I just got an executive position, I thought what being effective meant and what it meant for my team members this book made me think again about and start practicing the principles stated in the book religiously, training myself to be an effective executive. If you are an executive or want to grow into one this book is one that is worth the investment of time to absorb and digest. In terms of the audible version, great listen, I liked the pace of the reader fast but clear with a good pacing to digest topics, the foreword by Jim Collins was also good to get you on the mood for the rest of the book. Overall great great investment.

Narrator hard to listen to

I found it extremely hard to follow due to the narrator. It is impossible for me to judge the context as the narrator couldn't keep my attention . The effective manager was much more easy to follow

A few solid but basic ideas to keep in mind

Maybe the insights provided in this book were somehow less intuitive, or less often repeated, in the 1960s. Still, just like the great majority of business, leadership, and self-improvement books, it is good to have a reminder of the basics.

For the curious, and because I would want to know as a review reader, my paraphrase of the basics in this case are:
1. Anyone can apply good practices and improve their effectiveness and, as long a you are mindful in what you are being effect at, improve your value to the cause you are working towards.
2. Time is a fixed and precious thing - be very judicious how you spend it.
3. Understand exactly what your contribution is or should be, what is expected of you. Are you delivering to the best of your ability?
4. Operate in your strengths, and ensure that you have everyone under you also operating in their strengths. Operating or spending time in weaknesses is not productive.
5. Prioritize ruthlessly - do not do lower priority tasks, and align highest priority work that only you can do to your most productive work times (mornings, afternoons, evenings).
6. Endeavor to be creative = think outside the box.
7. Fail fast - if you are not getting the results you want, stop and change the approach, the goal, the game.

While I like reviewing the basics, I doubt I'll spend the time to listen to this book again.

The Best Professional Self improvement

Very well read, printed version is less organized. If you have a degree or more than 5 years of work experience, and if you work for someone or have someone working for you then you need to read/listen to this book.

Good few points, but redundant. Not recommended

I would rather read all mentioned on the book in one single article. That would have been a better investment of my time.

I'll listen to this every 4 months to stay with it

even though some of the references are old and outdated, all of the guidance remains true today. Incredible inside provided by Peter Drucker in this book is nearly invaluable. I will have to continue listen to this over and over again in an attempt to perform half as well is this book says I should.

Exceptional Actionable Insights

I have listened through two times with copious notes and just finished third listen no notes. I have put this to work in my business for myself, in meetings, in working through problems, in reviewing past decisions and where we could have made better decisions despite not knowing exact outcomes, in staff retention and engagement, in understanding the consumer better... and in conducting myself at work... It is simply one of the most useful and impactful business books I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading and listening to. Drucker’s insights seem to have a timelessness or continual relevance. Can’t recommend it enough.

For reference I run a small / medium business with 6 departments and $2M/quarter in sales. There is hotel, retail and restaurant combined in addition to staff housing.

Happy listening!
