Drucker Centennial calendar is updated with 2010 events

The Drucker Institute and the Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management have updated their Drucker Centennial events calendar for 2010.

The Centennial is a two-year commemoration of the life of the late Peter F. Drucker, the father of modern management; author of 39 books on organizational behavior, innovation, economy and society; and winner of the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Drucker, who died in 2005, would have turned 100 on Nov. 19, 2009.

Last year’s Drucker Centennial celebration was crowned by a weeklong series of activities in Southern California. Featured speakers included leading management thinkers Warren Bennis, Ken Blanchard, Jim Collins, Frances Hesselbein, Stephen Covey and Charles Handy.

This year will see a new slate of Centennial events, beginning with a Feb. 3 conversation in Los Angeles between Ira Jackson, dean of the Drucker School, and Meg Whitman, California gubernatorial candidate and former CEO of eBay.
