Experts in the worlds of business and academia regard Peter Drucker as the founding father of the study of management. He wrote 39 books, including the landmark titles The Practice of Management (1954) and The Effective Executive (1967).
He published his first book, The End of Economic Man, in 1939. His works had a profound impact on how people around the world organize themselves in the realms of business, government and civil society. He predicted many of the major developments of the late 20th century, including privatization and decentralization; the rise of Japan to economic world power; the decisive importance of marketing and innovation; and the emergence of the information society with its necessity of lifelong learning.
