Peter Drucker was likely the foremost internationally recognized management expert of the 20th Century, and this thought-provoking book (roughly 370 pages cover-to-cover) was originally published in the mid-1980s.
But, as perhaps the most important book he ever wrote, it’s entirely appropriate that it has been re-issued in multiple editions (in both hardcover and paperback) since his death in 2005. Drucker (who’s been referred to as the inventor of modern management and who’s penned more than 35 management-related books) defines innovation as the act that endows resources with a new capacity to create wealth. In this book, Druckerexplains why he believes that systematic and continuous innovation is a necessary component in managing all modern organizations.
