Effectiveness can be learned accordingly to Peter F. Drucker, a well known economist and a leader in business management. Knowledge workers such as engineers and architects all have the potential to become effective executives. This course will help you to get familiar with the principles essential to business effectiveness, which usually involves doing what other people have overlooked as well as avoiding what is unproductive. The course is based entirely on an exceptional book entitled The Effective Executive by Peter Drucker. As an author of thirty-nine books, Drucker has had an enormous impact on shaping the modern corporations. His writings have predicted many of the major developments of the late twentieth century, including the emergence of the information society with its necessity of lifelong learning. You will learn many skills you need to become an effective executive.
The course has a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
