    The Starting Point for Every Well-Educated Manager

    If, as a manager, you find business events taking you by surprise more often than they should, this book, perhaps better than any ever written, will teach you the fundamentals needed to manage not only uncertainties of the future but also to minimize the damage caused by not correctly anticipating that future. Drucker's book provides the base on which all sound management habits and practices must stand. I could not have written my recently published book, Why Didn't I Think of That? - Think the Unthinkable and Achieve Creative Greatness, without reference to Peter Drucker's groundbreaking work. Indeed, I would doubt the bona fides of any business book author who has not immersed himself or herself in Drucker's work. To get the most out of the cutting edge methods I teach, you must first have been a student of Drucker. Otherwise, you will too often look back on mistakes and missed business opportunites, asking yourself the unsettling questions raised by the chapters of my book, such as Why Didn't I See That? Why Didn't I Sense That? Why Didn't I Anticipate That? Why Didn't I Concentrate on That? Why Didn't I Consider That?
