VIENNA, Austria (PRWEB) March 01, 2013
The Global Peter Drucker Forum announced today that Harvard Business Review has joined as a media partner and will support the event through various editorial, marketing and social media initiatives.
The fifth annual Forum will be held on November 14 and 15, 2013, at the Federation of Austrian Industry in Vienna, the birthplace of the late Peter F. Drucker, who is widely considered "the father of modern management." This year's theme is "Managing Complexity."
"Perhaps no contributor to Harvard Business Review has had a greater impact on the practice of management than Peter Drucker," said Adi Ignatius, Harvard Business Review editor-in-chief. "We are pleased to partner with the 2013 Global Peter Drucker Forum to help carry forward his extraordinary legacy and take part in this important event."
Richard Straub, president of the Peter Drucker Society Europe, which organizes the Forum, commented: "After a series of highly successful annual conferences that started in 2009, this partnership marks a major milestone in our quest to be a global centre of gravity and catalyst in the field management thinking and practice. We are proud and honored that Harvard Business Review is engaging with the Drucker Forum."
Rick Wartzman, the executive director of the Drucker Institute, which is a key sponsor of the Forum, also noted how pleased he is with the partnership. "Every day, Harvard Business Review does a remarkable job of helping so many of us make sense of all the complexity we're facing in our economy and society, in our organizations and our own lives," he said. "There couldn't be a more fitting media partner for this year's Forum."
