Without doubt one of the most innovative personalities of the past century, Peter Drucker has had a crucial contribution to the development of Management as a discipline – the Man Who Invented Management – as he was once named by the New York Times (Lewis ,1998).
He has left behind a valuable collection of books that set the foundations for a great number of management concepts and described a suite of upcoming changes in the society, as they have been anticipated with great accuracy by Drucker. Among his most important titles are the following:
- The End of the Economic Man (1939)
- Concept of the Corporation (1946)
- The Practice of Management (1954)
- Frontiers of Management (1986)
- Peter Drucker on the Profession of Management (1998)
