Optimizing Management Effectiveness

Effectiveness Defined

Peter Drucker, the greatest management thinker ever and author of thirty-nine books including the classic The Effective Executive, taught, “Effectiveness is getting the right things done.” He also taught that every knowledge worker and those who manage them in a modern organization are “executives” if, by virtue of his or her position or knowledge, he or she is responsible for a contribution that materially affects the capacity of the organization to perform and obtain results.

Managing Oneself

In his Harvard Business Review article, “Managing Oneself” (originally published in 1999), Peter Drucker said, “Success in the knowledge economy comes to those who know themselves—their strengths, their values, and how they best perform.”  This means it is essential to understand the employee/manager relationship.

A recent Wiley survey of 5,000 employees found the skills that contribute to manager effectiveness are more relational in nature with 57% putting communication at the top followed by developing others (37%).
