Description
Expositional statements by Peter F. Drucker exploring the managing process. Drucker uses the Peerless Starch Company and its location in the community of Blair, Indiana as a case study. Drucker provides the background for Peerless Starch Company and asserts that its main drawback was that Blair did not produce quality products, and that rejection of batches for poor quality at Blair was unpopular. Eventually the Blair mill became a liability to Peerless and was shut down by outside director John Ludwig, and top management moved out. The end of the document raises the question of Ludwig's conflict of interest as it relates to shutting the mill down.
