About Peter Drucker Society

If there is a thought leader who anticipated a lot of the Next Society - up to the name itself - and shaped it against the prevailing zeitgeist of a shortening, but thus even more attractive business economics, it must be Peter Drucker. We are proud to bring into play his ideas and their receiving in the manifold discourses of organizational theory and management practice. This is made possible through our cooperation with the Peter Drucker Society, which trusses many of his continuative figures of thought and implements them in a social environment characterized by major upheavals, which Peter Drucker himself anticipated. We are delighted and grateful for the opportunity to become part of the international discourse by this interplay – a discourse which gathers the most important management thinkers of our time to exchange theories and thoughts.
