Material type: materialTypeLabelBookPublisher: Oxford Butterworth-Heinemann 1980Description: xi, 239 p. Includes references and index.ISBN: 9780750617031.Subject(s): Industrial management | Inflation - Finance | Finance - World economyDDC classification: 658 Summary: Managing in Turbulent Times tackles the key issues facing managers in the 1990s: how to manage in rapidly changing environments. This seminal and prophetic book laid the foundation for a generation of writers on change management. This book concerns the immediate future of business, society, and the economy. The one certainty about the times ahead, says Drucker, is that they will be turbulent times. In turbulent times the first task of management is to make sure of the organization's capacity for survival, to make sure of its structural strength and soundness, its capacity to survive a blow, to adapt to sudden change, and to avail itself of new opportunities. The author is concerned with action rather than understanding, with decisions rather than analysis. It aims at being a practical book for the decision-maker, whether in the private or the public sector. https://www.routledge.com/Managing-in-Turbulent-Times/Drucker/p/book/9780750617031?utm_source=crcpress.com&utm_medium=referral
