Peter F. Drucker on Business and Society Summary

Peter F. Drucker on Business and Society by Peter F. Drucker

The Wider World in Which Business Operates

The political issues impacting our global economy have changed dramatically in the decades since Peter F. Drucker first wrote the essays in this book, but the relationship between business, government, and society remains a potent driver of national and global prosperity.

In this collection of essays, Drucker explores the nuances of economic and political shifts and the impact of these shifts on the environment in which business must operate, as well as the specific challenges they pose for leaders. Drawing from a wide range of disciplines and perspectives, this book equips executives to better understand and address:

  • Structural changes in society
  • Paradigm shifts in presidential politics
  • The wider world outside the corporation
  • How politics, economics, and society must be viewed together as an interdependent system

Timeless in its insight and practical wisdom, Peter F. Drucker on Business and Society offers readers a revealing lens through which to view our world today.

About Peter F. Drucker

Peter F. Drucker (1909-2005) is one of the best-known and most widely influential thinkers on the subject of management theory and practice, and his writings contributed to the philosophical and practical foundations of the modern corporation.

Often described as "the father of modern management theory," Drucker explored how people are organized across the business, government, and nonprofit sectors of society; he predicted many of the major business developments of the late twentieth century, including privatization and decentralization, the rise of Japan to economic world power, the critical importance of marketing, and the emergence of the information society with its implicit necessity of lifelong learning. In 1959, Drucker coined the term "knowledge worker" and in his later life considered knowledge-worker productivity to be the next frontier of management.

Peter Drucker died on November 11, 2005, in Claremont, California. He had four children and six grandchildren.
