Today, the Drucker Exchange introduces a new feature called “Joe’s Journal” in which Joseph Maciariello, the Drucker Institute’s academic and research director, reflects on a quotation from Peter Drucker. Joe is the world’s leading Drucker scholar and co-authored two books with him (The Daily Drucker and The Effective Executive in Action).
But these entries provide more than Joe’s expert insights; they also draw on his friendship with Peter Drucker. “He was very much a mentor to me,” Joe once said of Drucker. “His standards were very high and he gently prodded me on beyond what I thought possible.”
