Om Drucker & Me
In 1982 a young, ambitious East Texas entrepreneur, whose business is growing at double-digit rates, decides there must be more the life. So, oddly enough, he writes a letter to the man whose books he most treasures-Peter R. Drucker, father of modern management theory and practice. As they met over the years, Buford sees that "Drucker is to management what Shakespeare is to literature. " Their relationship progresses from paid consultant to mentor and close friend. Drucker & Me tells how two men discover a mutual passion and strategy that will literally change the world. Their disappointment with corporate America leads them to embrace the non-profit sector, including one of the most important developments in the last 30 years-the mega church movement. Believing non-profit organizations change lives, they begin work with Rick Warren, Bill Hybels and others to design a new management model for non-profits in the 20th century.
