Rick Wartzman, director of the Drucker Institute, has begun writing an every-other-week column for BusinessWeek as part of the magazine’s new online focus on management issues.
The column, which debuted in mid-September, runs on BusinessWeek’s website every other Monday. It will also appear occasionally in the print edition of the magazine.
The column ties the teachings of Peter F. Drucker, who is widely considered the father of modern management, to events in the news. It will also, from time to time, highlight the work of scholars and practitioners in all sectors—business, government and the nonprofit world—who have been influenced by Drucker.
“We’re delighted to have an authority on the most influential thinker in management write from Drucker’s perspective,” said John A. Byrne, editor-in-chief of BusinessWeek.com and the magazine’s executive editor. “It’s a way to keep Drucker’s ideas and ideals alive and relevant to a new generation of managers and leaders.”
