Final Advice from Peter Drucker … the Father of Modern Management


NEW YORK - In 2003, Elizabeth Haas Edersheim, a former partner at McKinsey & Co., was approached by Dr. Drucker to write about his work …his ideas, not his life. For 16 months, Edersheim had unprecedented access to Drucker, discussing and compiling his views on business practices, economic changes and challenges facing executives.

The result of this collaboration: The Definitive Drucker, which Edersheim completed before Dr. Drucker passed away. The book captures the ideas that defined the practice of management for the past 75 years and gave rise to Drucker’s iconic status.

Edersheim explores Drucker’s thinking in areas such as connecting with customers, innovation, developing collaborations, asking critical questions, the CEO’s role. She states: “In a 21st century business environment where constraints of time and distance are gone and change comes as fast as the blink of an eye, Drucker’s ‘take’ is absolutely essential to managers.”

Author Edersheim discusses Drucker’s visionary concepts within the context of the modern business world, having interviewed top business leaders, including Jack Welch, Jim Collins, Michael Hammer and A.G. Lafley.

The Definitive Drucker offers a unique opportunity to learn Drucker’s final lessons on how to strategize, compete and triumph for the long term.
