Product Description


"As a tool for clarifying the thinking of volunteer boards, the Drucker Self–Assessment Tool is unparalleled. This is a real way to develop a language, get to the critical issues, and move on––the most practical and efficient method I have seen. As facilitator of over 175 retreats, it is the best thing I′ve used––and I appreciate the enhancements and improvements!" (Peggy Outon, board chair, National Alliance for Nonprofit Management) "The Drucker Foundation′s Self–Assessment Tool has made a lot of changes in the way we do business. . . . The workbook was a good beginning. The interactions and ′homework reports′ on flip–chart paper were a vital part of this learning process." (Sue H. Brown, executive director, Senior Centers of Spartanburg County, Inc.) "The results far surpassed our expectations. The Drucker Process literally revitalized the organization. The board members have rallied around a new mission statement, taken on a variety of tasks, and designed new programs, which are very realistic." (Beth S. Cole, former executive director, American Academy of Home Care Physicians)

Great for getting a non-profit organization back on track 6 Aug 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've served on several non-profit and for-profit boards in the past 30 years. It seems to me the two non-profits of interest to me now have lost their way; each board is floundering and the CEO doesn't really understand the role of the CEO, the role of board members (and the board) and none of us understand the mission, our reason for doing what we do. After reading Drucker's book on managing the nonprofit organization, I KNEW we were in trouble and I had a sense of the solution.

When I got Drucker's Five Questions book, I followed up by getting this text. It took me only a few hours to buy copies for each board member of both organizations. I'm now setting up visits with each director, giving them a copy of this booklet for their review.

This text is a great tool for any non-profit -- or for-profit corporation, too.

Brilliant! 24 Jan 2003
By Fred Peck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Peter Drucker has hit the nail on the head. This is strategic planning at its best, particularly for nonprofit organizations. The process is simple and concise, based on Drucker's 5 basic questions. The approach is comprehensive and inclusive. I recommend it to the leadership of any nonprofit organization.

Results-oriented approach to change management 27 Jan 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I am struck by its simplicity and by the depth of its value. Seeking to change the old paradigms of a beloved, yet antiquated traditional organization, while at the same time fostering the public support of long-time stakeholders, is daunting. But this no-nonsense approach perpetuates joint problem solving and ownership. DISCOVERY of the real, not assumed, answers to five essential questions helps to level the playing field. I am recommending its use and am seeking support for sponsorship of the two day seminars.
