Summary of Doing the Right Things Right
How the Effective Executive Spends Time
Productivity consultant Laura Stack offers how-to advice in this update of Peter Drucker’s 1967 classic, The Effective Executive.
In 1967, Peter Drucker, the father of modern management, published The Effective Executive: The Definitive Guide to Getting the Right Things Done. Drucker’s best-selling work, which codified business productivity, remains a revered, popular classic. Some of Drucker’s concepts, however, are more traditional than modern. Productivity consultant Laura Stack takes up where Drucker left off, offering a fresh perspective in her updated supplement to Drucker’s indispensable manual. She presents three “T’s” of leadership – “strategic thinking, team focus and tactical work” – as the organizing rubric for 12 critical management goals. Stack details why and how modern executives must operate in “efficient and effective” ways. getAbstract recommends her update to all executives – a category, she says, that includes anyone who makes important decisions.
In this summary, you will learn
- Why executives must be “efficient and effective”
- How to manage the “3T” leadership roles of “strategic thinking, team focus and tactical work,”
- How to carry out an executive’s 12 most vital practices in these three areas
