Peter Drucker is a renowned thought leader in the business world. While his name is synonymous with management theory, sometimes it takes some work to turn that theory into practice. Enter William Cohen, former student and protegee of Peter Drucker himself. His new book The Practical Drucker, published by AMACOM, is a guide on how to take Drucker’s idealistic statements and turn them into real management practice.
WILLIAM A. COHEN, PH.D., President of the Institute of Leader Arts and The California Institute of Advanced Management, was Druckerâ€™s first executive Ph.D. graduate. About him, Drucker wrote: â€œMy colleagues on the faculty and I learned at least as much as we could teach him.â€ He has held executive positions in several companies and served as president of two universities. He is the author of many books, including Heroic Leadership, A Class with Drucker, Drucker on Leadership, and Drucker on Marketing.
