Lessons from First Book of Management
“To be sure, the fundamental task of management remains the same: to make people capable of joint performance through common goals, common values, the right structure, and the training and development they need to perform and to respond to change.”
–Peter F. Drucker, Father of Modern Management
Management has become an integral part of daily life in the modern world, whether at home or at work. One correctly stated that the man behind the system is critical to the success of the organization.
Everyone’s main concern is how to be effective both at work and in their personal lives. The answer to this fundamental question can be found in the books and scriptures, where it has been repeatedly stated that “you must try to manage yourself.” The reason is that unless a person achieves a high level of excellence and effectiveness, he or she will be just another face in the crowd.
Effectiveness is doing the right things! The general principles of effective management can be applied in everyone’s life, the differences being more in application than in principle and can be summed up as:
- Creating a Vision
- Plan the strategy for achieving the vision.
- Cultivating the art of leadership.
- Creating an innovative organization.
- Teamwork and team building
- Delegation, motivation, and communication
- Reviewing performance and taking corrective action as needed.
Once quoted by a French author, Georges Bernanos, “A thought which does not result in an action is nothing much, and an action which does not proceed from a thought is nothing at all.”
