Description
Expositional statements by Peter F. Drucker exploring the managing process. Drucker uses the Miller Tool Company as a case study. The study explores the shortcomings of Miller Tool Company and how, through some failing operations, it was becoming clear that Miller should abandon some of its operations, yet problems of intertwined revenue complicated the move toward divestment. Most importantly, however, Miller suffered from a lack of corporate top management. The document poses the question of what bigness and its management contributes to a corporation. Drucker also poses the question of whether or not there is a limit to the number of businesses and overall diversity that one management can organize and direct.
