Description
This is a letter from Harold Smiddy to Peter Drucker. Smiddy gives a lengthy and detailed critique on Drucker's article "Management Science or Management Gadget Bag?", which he also calls his "Thinking Ahead" piece, for the Harvard Business Review. Smiddy feels that the point of the article is important and urgent, but needs some clarification. He also fears that it may offend the very people it is trying to help and should, therefore, have some revisions toward a different "flavor".
