Description of Drucker & Me: How Peter Drucker and a Texas Entrepreneur Conspired to Change the World by Bob Buford
In 1982 a young, ambitious East Texas entrepreneur, whose business is growing at double-digit rates, decides there must be more to life. So, oddly enough, he writes a letter to the man whose books he most treasures Peter F. Drucker, father of modern management theory and practice. As they meet over the years, Buford sees that "Drucker is to management what Shakespeare is to literature." Their relationship progresses from paid consultant to mentor to close friend.
Drucker & Me tells how two men discover a mutual passion and strategy that will literally change the world. Their disappointment with corporate America leads them to embrace the non-profit sector, including one of the most important developments in the last 30 years the megachurch movement. Believing non-profit organizations change lives, they begin work with Rick Warren, Bill Hybels, and others to design a new management model for non-profits in the twenty-first century.
