9780071765817: Drucker's Lost Art of Management: Peter Drucker's Timeless Vision for Building Effective Organizations

For Drucker, management was a moral force, not merely a tool at the service of the amoral market . . .

"Maciariello and Linkletter provide a very thoughtful and challenging journey in understanding Drucker's profound insights into the meaning of management as a liberal art."
—C. William Pollard, Chairman Emeritus, The ServiceMaster Company

"Linkletter and Maciariello have done a masterful job in bringing into focus the connections between Drucker's visions of management as a liberal art, of leadership dominated by integrity, high moral values, a focus on developing people, an emphasis on performance and results, and on balancing stability and continuity vs. the discontinuities created by change."
—Kenneth G. Wilson, Nobel Laureate in Physics 1982, 20-year disciple of Drucker's writings

"Maciariello and Linkletter provide a must-read for a new class of managers and academics who see beyond the bottom line."
—David W. Miller, Ph.D., Director Princeton Faith & Work Initiative and Associate Research Scholar, Princeton University, and President, The Avodah Institute

About the Book:

While corporate malfeasance was once considered the exception, the American public is increasingly viewing unethical, immoral, and even criminal business behavior as the norm. According to the authors of Drucker's Lost Art of Management, there is some truth behind this new perception. Business management has lost its bearings, and the authors look to Peter Drucker’s vision of management as a liberal art to steer business back on course.

Recognized as the world's leading Drucker scholar, Joseph Maciariello, along with fellow Drucker scholar Karen Linkletter, provides a blueprint for making corporate American management more functional and redeeming its reputation. Throughout his career, Peter Drucker made clear connections between the liberal arts and effective management, but he passed away before providing a detailed exposition of his ideas. Maciariello and Linkletter integrate their Drucker expertise in management and the liberal arts to finally define management as a liberal art and fulfill Drucker's vision.

In Drucker's Lost Art of Management, Maciariello and Linkletter examine Drucker's contention that managers must concern themselves with the foundational concepts of political science, history, economic theory, and other liberal arts, such as:

  • Societal values and standards
  • The use and abuse of power
  • Individual character development
  • Innovation and technology
  • The nature of good and evil
  • The role managers play in a healthy society

The authors create a new philosophy of management based on the principles leaders throughout history have relied on to be effective both individually and as custodians of civilized society and healthy economies.

Our future executives, professionals, managers, and entrepreneurs are on track to learning (and perpetuating) the idea that only the bottom line matters in business--a concept that benefits no one in the end. It's up to us to instill the ageless verities that make for good management, good society, and good business results.

A passionate call for radical change in today's management practices, Drucker's Lost Art of Management provides the ideas, concepts, and practical advice to make that change happen before it's too late.

Book Description McGraw-Hill Education - Europe, United States, 2011. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 231 x 163 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. A framework for improving managerial effectiveness--based on the timeless principles of Peter Drucker Peter Drucker believed that management, at its core, is a liberal art--that it is inherently a human activity and, as such, must be informed by the disciplines that affect human character development, cooperation, performance, innovation, and change. Managers informed by philosophy, literature, law, art, psychology, and other such disciplines, according to Drucker, make the best managers. In Drucker s Lost Art of Management, the world s foremost Drucker scholar and the first Drucker archivist investigate their subject s timeless vision to create a new, more effective management approach. Maciariello and Linkletter explain Drucker s vision for creating a society of functioning organizations--a society in which citizenship and business interests benefited one another. His management principles were at the core of this vision. Each of the five chapters in the book integrates disciplines in the liberal arts with requirements to successfully manage organizations by addressing key issues, including: The effective distribution of power and authority The development of human beings at work, both intellectually and morally The creation of leaders who are dedicated to the mission of their organization and possess the skill and judgment necessary to achieve their missions The advancement of the practice of management through the use of the liberal arts The application of systematic processes for creating new wealth through innovation and change Today, more than ever, Drucker s concepts need to be put into action. Drucker s Lost Art of Management is a clarion call for improving management practices presently in a state of acute crisis. Introduction; Chapter 1: Origins of Management as a Liberal Art in Peter Drucker s Writings; Chapter 2: Management and Liberal Arts Traditions: Bridging the Two Worlds; Chapter 3: Contributions of Management as a Liberal Art; Chapter 4: Federalism and the Distribution of Power and Authority; Chapter 5: The Human Dimension and Management as a Liberal Art; Chapter 6: Effective Leadership as a Liberal Art; Chapter 7: Social Ecology and the Practice of Management as a Liberal Art; Chapter 8: Applied Social Ecology: Innovation and Change for a Hopeful and Bearable Society; Conclusion.
