12 Global Peter Drucker Forum: Leadership Everywhere

Peter Drucker, whose life spanned the twentieth century, labeled that time as the era of organizations and institutions. Observing the dramatic rise of complex large-scale enterprises, he saw them as the new backbone of society and the economy.

As a consequence, he recognized the growing role of managers as fundamental to making these new legal, economic, social, and ultimately human constructs work. He also saw that when hospitals, education institutions, government bodies, and companies don’t perform, society at large does not function.

Ricardo will be a panelist on the panel: Leadership is more than good management.
