"About every three minutes, someone somewhere in the world Tweets about Peter Drucker.”
Claremont, Calif. (PRWEB) February 02, 2012
The Drucker Institute at Claremont Graduate University announced today that, once a month, it will feature select posts from its daily blog, the Drucker Exchange, in six languages: Chinese, Hindi, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese and Spanish.
These posts, translated from the English-language originals, will appear on the first Friday of every month beginning Feb. 3.
“Our readership is clearly a global one, and being able to provide content in more languages will help us connect to our growing audience around the world,” said Phalana Tiller, the Drucker Institute’s communications manager. “We have seen that about every three minutes, someone somewhere in the world Tweets about Peter Drucker,” Tiller continued. “It’s important for us to try to engage with the ever-expanding universe of Drucker-like thinkers, beyond the boundaries of the English language.”
The Drucker Exchange currently draws about 30,000 visits a month and is part of the Drucker Institute’s media suite, which also includes a radio show called “Drucker on the Dial” and a bi-weekly column in Bloomberg Businessweek online by Institute Executive Director Rick Wartzman.
About the Drucker Institute
The Drucker Institute at Claremont Graduate University is a think tank and action tank whose purpose is to better society by stimulating effective management and responsible leadership. It does this, in large part, by advancing the ideas and ideals of the late Peter F. Drucker, the father of modern management.
To meet its mission, the Institute hosts collaborative forums for executives from across all sectors; works with high-school and middle-school students to teach them basic management principles and equip them with lifelong tools for effectiveness; produces curricular material that distills Drucker’s decades of leading-edge thinking, including a management training system called the Drucker Management Path; and 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 and other holdings related to the fields of management and leadership; undertakes research that builds on Drucker’s writings; offers an annual $100,000 prize for nonprofit innovation; applies Drucker’s work to current events (through a regular online column in Bloomberg Businessweek and through a blog called the Drucker Exchange) 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 leaders and managers to do good while they do well. For more on the Drucker Institute, please visit: http://www.druckerinstitute.com.
