1) What are Drucker's views on planning and decision making?

by Daniel J. Power

Peter Drucker (November 19, 1909 – November 11, 2005) was an influential management thinker. His writings influenced two generations of business leaders and should continue to influence us. Drucker emigrated to the United States in the late 1930s and initially taught at Bennington College. He was a management professor at New York University from 1949 to 1971. He was Professor of Social Science and Management at Claremont Graduate University from 1971 to 2002. His first influential management book was Concept of the Corporation (1946).
