This recording is a summary of "The Effective Executive". A narrator gives the summary followed by an interview with Peter Drucker. In this recording, executives are defined as workers who make decisions though their knowledge or position that impact the results of the whole organization. These can be low level managers or company presidents, but must all plan, organize, integrate, motivate, and measure. Effectiveness is a habit that can be learned through essentially five practices: efficient time management, focusing on one's big picture contribution, building on strengths, setting and sticking to priorities, and making effective decisions. Each of these five practices is discussed in detail by the narrator. The recording ends with a brief interview with Peter Drucker. While Drucker admits he would make changes to the book in the ten years since it was published, they would be based on what he has learned in that time, and not on the societal and technological changes that have occurred.
