Drucker: One For The Ages

Peter Drucker, the organization consultant whose clear thinking and engaging analysis made him the leading management guru to many of the world's biggest companies, has died. He was 95.

In 1954, Peter Drucker said that the purpose of a business is to create a customer. It was true then and it's true now.

Throughout his career, Drucker made a point of working with charities and non-profit institutions, such as the Girl Scouts of America, hospitals, churches and universities, because he believed that good management is vital to all aspects of life. The Wall Street Journal reported that by 1987, Drucker was devoting half of his consulting hours without charge.

(Thank you Mr. Druck, you are an inspiration to more people....than you'll ever know.)
