Drucker was one of the first organizational thinkers who took non-profit enterprises seriously — and recognized two things about them:

  • Their impact on the nation’s quality of life is huge and growing;
  • They need effective management at least as much as business enterprises do.

As a result, his books are generally equally useful to leaders of both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations — and one classic is devoted to non-profits alone. Drucker wrote over 30 books, but here are a four you may especially wish to consider:


  • Managing in the Next Society (2002)
  • Management Challenges for the 21st Century (1999)
  • Managing the Nonprofit Organization (XXXX)
  • The Effective Executive (XXXX)

No doubt we’ll discuss some of their contents more in future issues of The Catholic Leader.
