In my opinion the best writer on management, his writings and ideas revolutionised the field of management, business in general and in business academia. He introduced the term knowledge worker, the term Outsourcing was created/introduced out of Peter Drucker's desire to make businesses more efficient and to concentrate on their core products or services therefore becoming more profitable.
If you have never read Peter Drucker, I encourage you to do so. You will become more knowledgeable, more efficient and your business will become more profitable. If you visit Wikipedia and search Peter Drucker you will find more information about him and his work along with helpful links. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peter_Drucker
