Summary

"Economic performance is not the only responsibility of a business." Peter Drucker As technology, globalization, and business innovation advance at breakneck speed, the question "What would Drucker do now?" becomes more relevant by the day. More than almost anyone of his time, Peter Drucker understood how the individual, the organization, and society are interrelated. And no one better recognized and articulated the challenges facing all threeor came up with more practical solutions to those challenges. Since 2007, the Drucker Institute's executive director, Rick Wartzman, has been asking what Drucker would do on a regular basisin his popular online column for Bloomberg Businessweek(formerly BusinessWeek). In each piece, Wartzman introduces a current issue and provides a view of it through the eyes of Peter Drucker, based on his deep knowledge of Drucker's ideas and ideals. What Would Drucker Do Now?culls Wartzman's best, most timely columns into a single volume, providing a perspective on business and society you won't find anywhere else. Featuring more than 80 articles, the book is organized into seven thematic sections: Management as a Discipline The Practice of Management Management Challenges for the 21st Century On Wall Street and Finance On Values and Responsibility The Public and Social Sectors Art, Music, and Sports Covering everything from the federal bailout of GM and scandal at Goldman Sachs to the roles religion and race relations play in a well-functioning society, What Would Drucker Do Now?explores a range of subjects as broad as Drucker's remarkable mind. Wartzman provides a smart, original, and provocative look at a world being buffeted by change and in which all organizationsprivate, public, and nonprofitare searching for answers. What would Drucker do now, indeed?
