Obituary (11/11/05)
"What Executives Should Remember"
Business Week Cover with Peter Drucker


Peter Ferdinand Drucker (November 19, 1909 - November 11, 2005) was a writer, management
consultant, and self-described "social ecologist". Widely considered to be "the father of
modern management," his 39 books and countless scholarly and popular articles explored
how humans are organized across all sectors of society.in business, government and the
nonprofit world. His writings have predicted many of the major developments of the late
twentieth century, including privatization and decentralization; the rise of Japan to
economic world power; the decisive importance of marketing; and the emergence of the
information society with its necessity of lifelong learning. In 1959, Drucker coined the
term "knowledge worker" and later in his life considered knowledge work productivity to
be the next frontier of management.

Drucker's books have been translated into more than thirty languages. Two are novels, one
an autobiography. He is the co-author of a book on Japanese painting, and made eight
series of educational films on management topics. He also penned a regular column in the
Wall Street Journal for 20 years and contributed frequently to the Harvard Business
Review, The Atlantic Monthly, and The Economist. He continued to act as a consultant to
businesses and non-profit organizations well into his nineties. Drucker died November 11,
2005 in Claremont, California of natural causes at 95.  (Text taken from "Peter Drucker"
