亲爱的曙明:

我现在是从香港给您写这封短信的,香港是我过去四天里走访的第四个城市――这几天可真是马不停蹄而又充满趣味啊!

两星期前,麦格劳•希尔出版社出版了《与众不同的德鲁克》(The Drucker Difference)一书,这是一本由德鲁克学院的教职员工撰写的散文合集,其素材来自大家要求全院学生必修的一门独特的入门课的讲义。次日,世界商业论坛在纽约市开幕,成为纪念德鲁克诞辰一百周年的一次活动。演讲者包括皮肯斯(T. Boone Pickens)、哈默尔(Gary Hamel)、萨克斯(Jeffrey Sachs)以及克鲁格曼(Paul Krugman)。我有机会站在无线电城音乐厅的舞台上向5000名与会者做报告,向大家重提了德鲁克以及他的理念与实践的相关性,随后由我邀请论坛的主旨演讲嘉宾、前美国总统克林顿先生。大家也利用这个场合发布了德鲁克研究所的一个新产品――《解读德鲁克》(Drucker Unpacked),它能帮助任何一个组织利用德鲁克的思想和方法来提高绩效。

从世界商业论坛回来之后,我紧接着参加了首次举办的“德鲁克学院庆祝会”,这次由全校教职员工、学生、校友和社会各界朋友参加的盛会使得大家对于大家过去一年所取得的成绩有个透彻的了解,也对大家今后的许多计划有一个初步的概念。这次庆祝活动的高潮是对德鲁克学院一个新的街牌号和地址的揭幕:德鲁克路100号。出席这个揭幕仪式的有德鲁克的夫人多莉斯、克莱蒙特研究生大学教务长伊峰、克莱蒙特市市长卡雷凯、克莱蒙特研究生大学理事泰勒,以及我本人。

上个星期,宝洁企业的董事长雷富礼(A.G. Lafley)和大家“德鲁克百年”纪念活动的四位主席中的一位联合召集了30名来自企业界和非政府机构的CEO,大家聚首于德鲁克研究所,会同世界上知名的研究领导力的学术专家,一起探讨21世纪CEO角色的变化,座谈的主要内容是德鲁克的思想和观点以及雷富礼最近在《哈佛商业评论》上发表的一篇文章,其中对于德鲁克的引用不下18次。与会者包括来自Intuit, Costco, Macy's, Wegman's, Teach for America等组织的CEO,以及来自斯坦福大学的Jeffrey Pfeffer教授、哈佛www.2979.com的 Moss Kanter 教授、南加州大学的 Warren Bennis 教授、西储大学的 David Cooperrider 教授、加拿大多伦多罗特曼www.2979.comRoger Martin院长、以及德鲁克学院的Vijay Sathe 教授和 Jean Lipman-Blumen教授。

说起《哈佛商业评论》,这个月它出了一期关于“德鲁克百年”的专刊,题目是“德鲁克对此会怎么说?” 让德鲁克的智慧帮助大家度过这个动荡的年代。

参加完在德鲁克研究所举办的这个CEO论坛,我连夜飞往中国南京,到金沙线上娱乐场参加一个非常特殊的纪念德鲁克百年的活动。这个活动是由大家的杰出校友赵曙明先生组织的,他作为一名富有开拓精神的院长,带领金沙线上娱乐在过去的31年时间里逐渐成为中国的一个创新型管理教育机构。大家可以想像出我当时的喜悦:出席一个有着四百多名学者和学生参加的大型论坛,所有人都致力于向现代管理之父彼得•德鲁克学习!赵院长当天下午还邀请我一同参加了由金沙线上娱乐场EMBA学会主办的一个读书会,有200多名EMBA学员和校友参加,我荣幸地应邀致辞,提到德鲁克先生生前一直重视EMBA教育、注重向EMBA学习、以及他若在世将会非常开心地看到大家有志于终身学习――通过成立这样一个每月碰一次头的读书会,包括重读德鲁克的许多经典著作。

当我还在南京期间,大家“德鲁克百年”纪念活动的主席之一邵明路先生携同他在中国的彼得•德鲁克学院的团队,正积极开始了在中国举办的五场纪念德鲁克诞辰百年的活动,首场活动在北京和济南举行。我稍后赶到南昌与他们会合,然后再一起到了上海,现在又到了香港。大家所到之处,都有大量的听众,而且听的人认真专注、讲的人思想活跃,大家对于德鲁克理论和实践的热情与投入是显而易见的!在中国,人们对于德鲁克的关注是深刻的,而且与日俱增。 昨天在香港的主旨演讲和分组讨论都表达了对于德鲁克的崇敬,感谢他帮助大家理解了管理的内涵、创新的意义、和常识工编辑对于维持一个健康经济的重要性。与会者也都借用德鲁克的洞察力来评析最近的“金融风暴”产生的道德方面的原因,强调创造力和好奇心对于推动香港未来的重要性,指出未来的领导者需要秉持德鲁克所提出的有效管理、道德领导以及社会责任。

眼下,正当我要返回克莱蒙特之际,一群充满热情的学生、校友和教师正着手准备一场被称为“德鲁克之周”的从11月2日到8日的纪念活动,欢迎大家光临参加!活动安排包括一场日本艺术展以及星期天的一次由德鲁克夫人多莉斯主持的早午餐会,其间穿插着许多名人讲话,包括Stephen Covey, Ken Blanchard, Charles Handy, Warren Bennis, Frances Hesselbein, 和 Jim Collins等人。

此外,“德鲁克百年”纪念活动还将在奥地利的维也纳举行,届时德鲁克夫人多莉斯、德鲁克研究所的常务所长Rick Wartzman 、Joseph Maciariello教授以及我本人将与来自欧洲学术界和企业界的知名人士在这座一百年前于1909年11月19日德鲁克诞生的城市来共同缅怀他。大家在南美洲的朋友也正在把他们设在巴西圣保罗、阿根廷布宜诺斯艾利斯、墨西哥城、意大利米兰等地的商业展览会改成纪念德鲁克诞辰百年的活动,这样一来,大家的纪念活动真可谓全球性的了,涉及者多达数万人。

所有这些活动展现出一种不断壮大的、超越地界和学问的合作意识与分享精神。这些活动的共性和言语、促进团结的方法和信息,都来自于德鲁克的教诲和价值观。我所到之处――无论是董事会还是社会团体,无论是州长办公室还是学校课堂――做为一个全球社区,大家共同面临的挑战迫切呼唤德鲁克式的解决之道,以便提高效果和绩效,培养道德型和谦卑型领导力,加强社会责任感。

我觉得大家这些身在德鲁克学院的同仁就像一个运动员,正在与超过自己重量级的选手们竞赛。相比全美国和全世界的那些规模大、资金多的www.2979.com,大家不过是一个很小的机构。事实上,大家可能是美国的1000所www.2979.com中最小的了。但是,就像一个小小的发动机,大家正帮助世人攀登未来所需要的通往学习和常识的陡峭阶梯。 大家正从事着 Jim Collins所说的“大家必须:提出重大问题、全力以赴寻求真理和智慧、承担起常规思考并提供创造性的新观念、新办法来解决社会中那些最棘手的难题。”

我对于大家的合作伙伴和大家德鲁克学院的人数不多但充满热忱的师生员工倍感骄傲! 大家大家都传承了德鲁克的遗产并把他的思想观念以各种新的方式带给各种听众。透过全世界对德鲁克的欢迎,大家不难看出,德鲁克的思想得到了前所未有的共鸣!根据最新统计,在世界五大洲的十六个国家已经成立了28个德鲁克学会。

德鲁克要求大家做合格的管理员,让大家身后的世界要比大家生活的世界还要好。谢谢你们帮助大家这些德鲁克学院的同仁成为对他的遗产的合格管理员。正如他生前一再提醒大家的:预测未来的最佳方式就是创造未来。谢谢各位与大家今天一道以一种德鲁克先生欣赏的方式创造未来!

谨致以最美好的祝愿!

Dear Shuming:

I'm writing this note from Hong Kong, the fourth Chinese City I've visited in the last four days. What a wonderful, whirlwind few days this has been!

Less than two weeks ago, McGraw-Hill published The Drucker Difference, an anthology of essays from Drucker School faculty based on the unique gateway course that we require of all our entering Drucker School students. For information on the The Drucker Difference, click here.

The next day, the World Business Forum opened in New York City, branded this year into a Drucker Centennial event. Speakers ranged from T. Boone Pickens to Gary Hamel, Jeffrey Sachs and Paul Krugman. I had the opportunity to address the 5,000 attendees from the stage at Radio City Music Hall and to reintroduce Peter Drucker and the relevance of his principles and practices, before introducing our keynote speaker, former President Bill Clinton. We also used this venue to launch the Drucker Institute's new product, Drucker Unpacked, which allows any organization to access Drucker's insights and methods to improve performance. 

Immediately upon my return from the World Business Forum, the Drucker School celebrated its first ever State of the School. This event, attended by students, alumni, university-wide staff and friends from the community allowed our stakeholders a transparent look into what has transpired over the past year and also a window into some of our many plans for the future. Our celebration of the Drucker School culminated with the unveiling of a new street sign and address for the Drucker School, 100 Drucker Way. To commemorate this milestone, Doris Drucker joined CGU Provost Yi Feng, Claremont Mayor Corey Calaycay, CGU Trustee Marshall Taylor and me in unveiling a new street sign and address for the Drucker School: 100 Drucker Way.

Last week, A.G. Lafley, the Chairman of Procter & Gamble and one of our Drucker Centennial Chairs, convened 30 corporate and NGO CEOs at the Drucker Institute, along with some of the world's leading academic experts on leadership, to explore the changing role of the CEO in the 21st Century, informed by Peter Drucker's insights and perspective and a recent article that A.G. wrote in the Harvard Business Review, which cited Peter no fewer than 18 times (click here for more details.) Participants included the CEOs of Intuit, Costco, Macy's, Wegman's, Teach for America, plus Professors Jeffrey Pfeffer of Stanford, Rosabeth Moss Kanter of HBS, Warren Bennis of USC, David Cooperrider of Case Western, Dean Roger Martin of the Rotman School in Toronto, and Vijay Sathe and Jean Lipman-Blumen of the Drucker School.

Speaking of the Harvard Business Review: this month's special edition is devoted to the Drucker Centennial and is entitled: "What would Peter say? " Learn how his wisdom can help you navigate turbulent times.

Following the CEO Forum, I flew through the night to a very special Drucker Centennial celebration at the University of Nanjing, where our alumnus, Shuming Zhao, has been the pioneering dean of the business school which has emerged as a major source of innovative management education in China over the past 31 years. Imagine my delight in arriving at a major forum attended by more than 400 scholars and students and devoted exclusively to learning from the father of modern management: Peter F. Drucker! Dean Zhao also devoted a meeting later in the day of 200 EMBA alumni from the Business School at the University of Nanjing to Peter Drucker's legacy, and I had the privilege to address this group and relate to them how much Peter respected executive management students, how much he learned from them, and how thrilled he would be to witness their devotion to lifelong learning -- and the monthly book club they have established, which includes rereading many of Peter's classics.

While I was in Nanjing, our Drucker Centennial Co-Chair, Minglo Shao, and his talented team from the Peter F. Drucker Academy in China, were kicking off the first of five Drucker Centennial events throughout China , beginning in Beijing and Jinan. I caught up with them in Nanchang, then Shanghai and now Hong Kong. Throughout, the crowds have been large, the audiences attentive, the speakers informative and thoughtful, and the energy and enthusiasm for Peter's principles and practices quite palpable. The commitment to Peter Drucker here in China is deep and profound -- and clearly growing. Yesterday's keynote speeches and panel discussions conveyed respect for Peter's historic contributions to our understanding of management and the role of innovation and the knowledge worker in sustaining a healthy economy. They also built upon Peter's insights to shed light on the ethical dimensions of the recent "financial tsunami," the importance of creativity and intellectual curiosity in propelling Hong Kong's future, and the need for leaders in the future who share Peter's belief in effective management, ethical leadership and social responsibility. 

As I return to Claremont, an enthusiastic team of students, alumni and staff are gearing up for what promises to be a memorable Drucker Week, from November 2-8, to which you are all invited. Sign up here. Activities range from a Japanese Art Exhibit to a concluding Sunday brunch hosted by Doris Drucker -- with a fabulous lineup of speakers in between, including Stephen Covey, Ken Blanchard, Charles Handy, Warren Bennis, Frances Hesselbein, and Jim Collins, among many others -- in both Claremont and in downtown Los Angeles. 

Additional Drucker Centennial events will take place in Vienna, Austria where Doris, Rick Wartzman (Executive Director of the Drucker Institute), Prof. Joseph Maciariello and I will join a pantheon of European academic and business leaders in honoring Peter in the city where he was born 100 years ago November 19, 1909. Our friends in South America are transforming their business expos in São Paulo, Brazil, Buenos Aires, Argentina, Mexico City and Milan, Italy, into Drucker Centennial events as well, making our celebration truly global in scope, and involving literally tens of thousands of people.

In all this, there is a growing sense of community and shared commitment across geographies and cultures. The common denominator, the singular language, the unifying method and message, is found in Peter Drucker's values and teachings. Everywhere I go, from board rooms to community groups, from governors' offices to classrooms, the challenges we face as a global community call out for a Drucker-like approach to problem solving, effectiveness and performance, ethical and humble leadership, and social responsibility. 

I feel as though we at Drucker are like an athlete competing above our weight class. We're a tiny institution relative to so many of the massive and financially muscular business schools across America and around the world. Indeed, we may be the smallest of the 1,000 business schools in the United States. But, like the little engine that could, we're helping to lead the way to and climb the steep curve of learning and knowledge that we need for the future. We're doing what Jim Collins says we must: asking the big questions, summoning the courage to seek both truth and wisdom, to take on conventional thinking and offering up creative new ideas and approaches and solutions to some of society's most intractable problems. 

I'm so proud of all our partners and our tiny little band of passionate and super smart students, faculty and staff here at the Drucker School and the Drucker Institute who are sustaining Peter's legacy and revitalizing his message and bringing those insights to new audiences in new ways. It's clear from the reception around the world that Drucker is resonating now as perhaps never before. At the latest count, there are now 28 Societies in 16 countries on five continents. 

Peter challenged us to be good stewards, to leave the world a better place than we found it. Thank you for helping us be good stewards of his legacy. As he would remind us, the best way to predict the future is to create it. Thank you for joining us as we attempt to create the future, together, today, in a Drucker-like way. 

All the best.
