Part 6: Peter Drucker’s uniqueness and strengths: Praise - summary                       

„Management guru Gary Hamel said, ‚Peter Drucker’s reputation is as a management theorist. He has also been a management prophet. Writing in 1969, he clearly anticipated the emergence of the knowledge economy. I’d like to set a challenge for would-be management gurus: try to find something to say that Peter Drucker has not said first, and has not said well. This high hurdle should substantially reduce the number of business books clogging the bookshelves of book-sellers, and offer managers the hope of gaining some truly fresh insights.’”
