‘Drucker Apps’ 5/08/09: Management Insights on National Service, Nonprofits and Giving Back

This installment of Drucker Apps was inspired by President Obama’s recent signing of the Serve America Act, which is designed to spur service and volunteering across the country. The need for the law is clear, for as Peter Drucker said, “If we don’t want to have serious social problems, we have to increase the effectiveness and the resources of the nonprofit sector.” This edition of Drucker Apps includes:
•    A balm for a sick society
•    Getting beyond good intentions
•    Why giving is as good as receiving
•    The volunteer’s responsibility
