In honor of Peter Drucker, we're doing a Drucker tribute at 8cr this week. There will be insights from those who knew him well and those who learned a lot from him. Earlier this morning, we did a Tom Peters' post on Drucker.
It is with great sadness that I announce the passing of Peter Drucker, internationally renowned author and consultant, "the father of modern management," the Marie Rankin Clarke Professor of Social Science and Management, husband, father, grandfather, dear friend, and cherished colleague. Peter passed away on November 11, 2005; he was 95 years old. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife of 68 years, Doris, and their four children and six grandchildren, and all of those who were close to this extraordinary man.
Peter Druckers work calls two masters to mind: Bob Marley and William Shakespeare. What About Bob, you ask. Well, Drucker brings Marley to mind (my mind at least) for his central, solar, role in his universe.
