The Marcus Buckingham Company and the Drucker Institute Align to Foster New Generations of Leadership
The history and future of management thinking have converged in a partnership between The Marcus Buckingham Company and the Drucker Institute. The Marcus Buckingham Company’s cloud-based productivity tool StandOutM will give Peter Drucker’s legendary management principles new applications through modern technology, strengthening a shared vision for bettering society by stimulating effective management and responsible leadership.
Powered by content recommendation algorithms, StandOutM delivers personalized, strengths-based leadership lessons in real time. The new partnership supplements StandOutM’s already robust database of management advice from notable leaders by leveraging management advice from the Drucker Institute based on Peter Drucker’s principles.
“Technology is the key to engaging young leaders who learn most effectively from messages that are short, personalized, and easily accessible and adaptable to their specific challenges,” said Zachary First, managing director of the Drucker Institute, a part of Claremont Graduate University. “This collaboration with The Marcus Buckingham Company leverages technology to capture Peter Drucker’s timeless wisdom in a way that a new generation of professionals can easily understand and practice.”
“My connection with Peter Drucker is personal as well as professional, making this partnership both a natural fit and an inspiring endeavor,” said Marcus Buckingham, who was mentored by strengths visionary Don Clifton, a Drucker protégé. “Together we are seeking to give tomorrow’s leaders the knowledge and tools they need to succeed.”
