Peter Drucker, Management visionary

“The best way to predict the future is to create it.”

“People who don’t take risks generally make about two big mistakes a year. People who do take risks generally make about two big mistakes a year.”

“Accept the fact that we have to treat almost anybody as a volunteer.”

Peter Ferdinand Drucker (November 19, 1909 – November 11, 2005) was an influential writer, management consultant, and self-described “social ecologist”.

Drucker’s books and scholarly and popular articles explore how humans are organized across the business, government and the nonprofit sectors of society.  He is one of the best-known and most widely influential thinkers and writers on the subject of management theory and practice.

His writings have predicted many of the major developments of the late twentieth century, including privatization and decentralization; the rise of Japan to economic world power; the decisive importance of marketing; and the emergence of the information society with its necessity of lifelong learning.

In 1959, Drucker coined the term “Knowledge worker” and later in his life considered knowledge worker productivity to be the next frontier of management.

Peter Drucker gave his name to two institutions: the Drucker Institute and the Peter F Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management, both at Claremont Graduate University. The annual Global Peter Drucker Forum in his hometown of Vienna Austria, honours his legacy.
