Peter Drucker was a management expert extraordinaire, an author of 39 books who told his readers to focus in life and in business not on “success,” but on concrete contributions they could make to society.  In short, his writing looked at ways that organizations could bring out the best in people and to offer their best to society.

  • One observer, Harriet Rubin in Inc. March 1, 1998, noted “No human being has built a better brand by managing just himself than Peter Drucker has. He has represented quality, integrity, and value longer than Intel, Microsoft, or McDonald’s has. He has done this in ways that reject the standard formula for success. “
  • The Drucker Institute references his 600 page Management: Tasks, Responsibilities, Practices (1974) (read it here for free or buy it here), his magnum opus, as a text that “would become the playbook for generations of corporate executives, nonprofit managers and government leaders.”
  • Drucker’s The Effective Executive (1966) (buy it here – sorry, I couldn’t find a free online version), now considered a classic was listed in 2008 on the Kalima Initiative’s list of top 100 most influential books that most needed to be translated into Arabic. On the list alongside The Effective Executive also appeared The Meaning of Relativity by Einstein and The Aeneid by Virgil.

The Drucker Institute lists dozens of articles with full text links that tell much of this fascinating man. Many of the articles are fantastic, but I especially recommend an article from Inc. for my entrepreneurial minded readers out there – Drucker A to Z.
