Overview


The relationship of humans to technology and management is an ever-growing theme in today's world of ubiquitous mobile devices, constant Internet access, and omnipresent digital business tools. Fifty years ago Peter F. Drucker was already at the forefront of these questions, probing the ways in which management and technology struggle with the shared task of making us more productive. His thinking on how management and technology affect quality of life, what efficiency means versus productivity, and whether management can ever be a true science is as relevant today as it was then.

These twelve essays exhibit, as do all Peter Drucker's writings, crisp reasoning, projection and analysis of short-term realities and examination of long-range goals and possibilities, and a unique voice that makes all these ideas accessible.
