INTRODUCTION

A DAY OF DRUCKER

 

Fifty years ago, there were few managers in the US or Japan who did not know the name Peter Drucker, and today there are even fewer whose work is unaffected by him—whether they are aware of it or not. Called the “father of management,” he did more than anyone in his time or since to help practicing executives come to grips with the challenges of complex organizations and the social and economic trends unfolding around them. While annually the Global Peter Drucker Forum honors this legacy by showcasing important new thinking by scholars and managers, there are some years when we find ourselves returning more than usual to Drucker’s own work. This is one of those years – a turbulent time when managers can especially use his insights and his uniquely powerful way of thinking about the world. A Day of Drucker is an opportunity to learn what Peter Drucker considered most important about managing in the midst of disruptive events, technological transformation, and increasingly knowledge-based economies – and to explore how well his answers respond to today’s burning questions. We’ll also learn about the influences that shaped him as a thinker, and in turn, the influence Drucker had on the lives and work of those who knew him.
