“Management Challenges for the 21st Century” by Peter F. Drucker
Peter Drucker was a visionary thinker who over the course of a long career as a writer, teacher, and consultant, authored twenty-six notable books that delved into the science of management. He passed away in 2003 at the age of 96 still working and writing and teaching and defining what he called the Art and Science of Management.
This book discusses how the many paradigms of management have, in Drucker’s opinion, continued to change and challenge our basic assumptions about the practices and principles of management.

What are the realities …what are the forces that threaten the status quo….and what should we be doing to meet the challenges.
