While it is impossible to say with any degree of certainty what the future will be like, it is already possible to discern its most important features and key challenges: Markets will be global with information free to flow anywhere without hindrance or restriction. The center of power will rest squarely with consumers because they have access to so much information. The importance of manufacturing to the overall economy will continue to fall. The social complexion of the new economy will be different as knowledge workers become the most dominant group. According to Peter Drucker, the best way to face the future is to have an understanding of the tools which are available and the skills to manage them well. In The Essential Drucker, the author explains the basic principles of management and its challenges. Written by a management legend, The Essential Drucker is an inspiring book for managers and executives.
