DRUCKER’S IDEAS STAND THE TEST OF TIME
by Stefan Stern November 23 2009
In 1974, the New York Times reported that sales of Peter Drucker’s latest book, Management: Tasks, Responsibilities, Practices, had overtaken those of Alex Comfort’s illustrated primer The Joy of Sex. For one brief moment, management was the hottest topic of all.
Only Drucker could have achieved this. “No other person has had the impact on the practice of management that he did,” according to one of today’s leading authorities, CK Prahalad. This November marks the centenary of Drucker’s birth – he died in 2005 just short of his 96th birthday – and the anniversary has been celebrated in a series of events round the world.
