When management fails,
tyranny prevails

The word “management” too often conjures soulless cubicle dwellers pushing paper. Peter Drucker knew different. “Our society has become…a society of institutions,” he wrote. And when our organizations fail to be effective and responsible, terrible things rush in to fill the void. “Performing, responsible management is the alternative to tyranny and our only protection against it.”

Stronger organizations make a stronger society,

which offers everyone:

a meaningful
and useful life

a rational chance
of equal opportunity

trustworthy
institutions
