Claremont, CA (PRWEB) January 30, 2009
The Drucker Institute at Claremont Graduate University today launched Drucker Apps, a downloadable collection of useful insights on work and life from the world's foremost expert on organizations and effectiveness, Peter F. Drucker.
Available twice a month, Drucker Apps ties the timeless wisdom of one of the great thinkers and writers of the 20th century to the hottest issues of today, all delivered by the latest in 21st-century technology.
The first installment of Drucker Apps was inspired by the recent swearing-in of President Barack Obama, who touched on the need for effectiveness in the public sector in his inaugural address, saying, "The question we ask today is not whether our government is too big or too small, but whether it works."
This premiere edition of Drucker Apps includes:
- Drucker's "Six Rules for Presidents"
- How to make decisions like Lincoln
- Is charisma all it's cracked up to be?
- Can government be effective?
"No matter what kind of organization you work in, you're sure to find Peter Drucker's insights into effective management, ethical leadership and social responsibility thought-provoking and useful as you go about your day-to-day tasks," said Rick Wartzman, director of the Drucker Institute. "Given all the turmoil in the world today, it's clear we need Drucker more than ever. Drucker Apps is a great way to give new audiences a taste of his ideas and ideals in easily digestible bites."

About the Drucker Institute:
The Drucker Institute at Claremont Graduate University is a think tank and action tank whose purpose is to stimulate effective management and ethical leadership across all sectors of society. It does this, in large part, by advancing the ideas and ideals of Peter F. Drucker, the father of modern management.
The Institute acts as a hub for a worldwide network of Drucker Societies, volunteer-driven organizations that are using Drucker's teachings to bring about positive change in their local communities.
In addition, the Institute maintains a digital archive of Drucker's papers; undertakes research that builds on Drucker's writings; offers an annual $100,000 prize for nonprofit innovation; produces curricular material that distills Drucker's decades of leading-edge thinking; applies Drucker's work to current events (including through a regular online column in BusinessWeek by Institute Director Rick Wartzman); presents a slide show exploring the "Responsibility Gap" -- society's collective failure to be good and ethical stewards of our resources, people and institutions; and hosts visiting fellows with Drucker-like insights and values.
The Institute is a close affiliate of the Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management, which is training the next generation of effective managers and ethical leaders for all sectors of society. To learn more, visit http://www.drucker.cgu.edu.
