Peter Drucker Quotes


The most important thing in communication is hearing what isn't said.

Plans are only good intentions unless they immediately degenerate into hard work.

Follow effective action with quiet reflection. From the quiet reflection will come even more effective action.

Leadership and Management

Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.

Effectiveness is doing things right; efficiency is doing the right things.

There is nothing so useless as doing efficiently that which should not be done at all.

The temptation of business is always to feed yesterday and to starve tomorrow.

Effective leadership is not about making speeches or being liked; leadership is defined by results not attributes.

Accept the fact that we have to treat almost anybody as a volunteer.

We know nothing about motivation. All we can do is write books about it.


The entrepreneur always searches for change, responds to it, and exploits it as an opportunity.

The purpose of a business is to create a customer.

The aim of marketing is to know and understand the customer so well the product or service fits him and sells itself.

Innovation is the specific instrument of entrepreneurship. The act that endows resources with a new capacity to create wealth.
