A Quote by Peter F. Drucker on decisions, difficulty, facts, good, learning, people, play, purpose, teamwork, and work

Teamwork is neither "good" nor "desirable." It is a fact. Wherever people work together or play together they do so as a team. Which team to use for what purpose is a crucial, difficult and risky decision that is even harder to unmake. Managements have yet to learn how to make it.

A Quote by Peter F. Drucker on authority, cooperation, force, knowledge, management, obedience, performance, responsibility, superstition, and thought

"Management" means, in the last analysis, the substitution of thought for brawn and muscle, of knowledge for folkways and superstition, and of cooperation for force. It means the substitution of responsibility for obedience to rank, and of authority of performance for the authority of rank.

A Quote by Peter F. Drucker on belief, incompetence, money, quality, service, and value

Quality in a product or service is not what the supplier puts in. It is what the customer gets out and is willing to pay for. A product is not quality because it is hard to make and costs a lot of money, as manufacturers typically believe. This is incompetence. Customers pay only for what is of use to them and gives them value. Nothing else constitutes quality.

A Quote by Peter F. Drucker on flattery, friendship, justice, leadership, limitations, people, performance, personality, personality, and vision

Leadership is not magnetic personality - that can just as well be a glib tongue. It is not "making friends and influencing people" - that is flattery. Leadership is lifting a person's vision to high sights, the raising of a person's performance to a higher standard, the building of a personality beyond its normal limitations.
