‘Drucker Apps’ 3/11/09: Usable insights on an industry in turmoil from Peter F. Drucker

This installment of Drucker Apps springs off the fact that the owners of the Los Angeles TimesPhiladelphia Inquirer and Minneapolis Star-Tribune have filed for bankruptcy, and Denver’s Rocky Mountain News has gone under. Taken together, they are a case study in what happens when, as Drucker put it, “The assumptions on which the company has been built and is being run no longer fit reality.”

This edition of Drucker Apps includes:

  • Why do companies stop performing?
  • Why organizations musn’t cling to the past
  • Will newspaper owners put the community before profits?
  • An ink-stained wretch’s lesson in self-management
