Drucker Day 2019
A Spotlight on Organizations—and Their Leaders—That Contribute to a Functioning Society
March 9, 2019
Drucker Day 2019 focused on the contributions organizations and their leaders make to a functioning society. We showcased organizations who have taken the lead to solve some of the world’s most complex global problems.
According to Peter Drucker, a functioning society is comprised of functioning, sustainable organizations across all sectors, which are run by ethical and responsible managers who pay attention to what they do to society and for society. A functioning society gives individual human beings dignity and status within a community and a meaningful place in society. In our world today, we as leaders, managers, and human beings the world over face numerous problems that are so interdependent and socially complex that no single leader, organization, institution, or country has the ability to solve them. Never before have Peter Drucker’s core principles and vision for a functioning society been more relevant or needed.
