“Leadership is Marketing” – Peter Drucker Said What?

Tanveer Naseer

In a public newspaper column Drucker predicted a rosy future and a bull market. Drucker Avoided Leadership.

Technology Changes, Good Management Doesn’t

Harvard Business

I’ve always loved the contrast between Moore’s Law – Gordon Moore’s pronouncement that silicon chips’ power would double every 18 months – and Peter Drucker’s much more sober statement about the art of managing people: “We are not going to breed a new race of supermen.
