WHY PLANS FAIL: Peter Drucker

Plans are only
good intentions
unless they immediately degenerate

into hard work.

— Peter Drucker *


Somehow as leaders we often struggle with getting from the thinking and planning side to actually making things happen.

What would it take to change that in your organization....

To become an organization that both plans and produces?





* The late Peter Drucker was an Austrian-born American management consultant, educator, and author who taught and wrote about business.

Drucker was a leader in developing management education, inventing the concepts known as management by objectives and self-control. He put words to challenges many faced but couldn’t explain. In 1959, Drucker coined the term knowledge worker, and later in life considered knowledge-worker productivity to be the next frontier of management.

Drucker predicted many major developments, including: privatization and decentralization; the rise of Japan to an economic world power; the importance of marketing; and the emergence of the information society with its necessity of lifelong learning.

Peter Drucker gave his name to three institutions: the Drucker Institute at Claremont Graduate University; the Peter F. Drucker Academy; and the annual Global Peter Drucker Forum in Vienna.

Peter Drucker has long been an icon for business leaders around the world. His lectures and writings have influenced millions of leaders and countless companies. In 2002, Drucker was awarded The Presidential Medal of Freedom.
