Drucker Playbook for the Public

The Drucker Playbook for the Public Sector arms government employees with tools for individual, team and organizational effectiveness.

The Playbook consists of four integrated modules on leadership: Vision, Management, Performance and Character. The 12 Playbook workshops share practical, Drucker-based lessons that participants implement in their agencies, as well as for their own professional development.

As with our other core programs, the Playbook rests on our YESTERDAY/TODAY/MONDAY* foundation. “Yesterday” refers to the fact that all of our work is grounded in Peter Drucker’s timeless wisdom. “Today” speaks to the urgency that we know organizational leaders feel to successfully meet their greatest challenges and opportunities. And “Monday” points to our proven ability to help people move quickly from ideas to action to results, just as Drucker urged his own consulting clients: “Don’t tell me you had a wonderful meeting with me. Tell me what you’re going to do on Monday that’s different.”

Along the way, Playbook participants benefit from another of our strengths: our work with organizations across all sectors. This scope allows us to glean—and share—insights not only from a wide range of government agencies but from corporations and nonprofits, as well.

The Drucker Institute has conducted a two-stage pilot of the Drucker Playbook, first delivering 12 monthly, live, in-person training sessions in South Bend, Indiana, and then, in conjunction with the National League of Cities, a year of remote, live workshops over the Internet with city managers and supervisors in Louisville, Kentucky, and Memphis, Tennessee. The Drucker Institute has partnered with CPS HR Consulting to conduct surveys and interviews with Drucker Playbook participants to measure the Playbook’s long-term impact and results in making public sector individuals and agencies more effective.

The Drucker Institute is now ready to take the Drucker Playbook to scale with government employees and organizations across the United States.
