Magazine - Peter Drucker: 1909–2005 - FORTUNE - Page

More very interesting words from Peter Drucker:

“The three greatest leaders of the 20th century were Hitler, Stalin, and Mao. If that’s leadership, I want no part of it.”


In context, he's talking about how the received wisdom these days is to put down mere "management" and exalt "leadership". Very interesting indeed!

And if you click on that link, there are several very interesting and very touching tributes to Peter Drucker. As I mentioned when David Lange died earlier this year, the best time to get a summation of someone's contribution to the world is when they die. Sad, but true.
