Publisher's Summary

Peter Drucker, "the father of modern management", records his insights here on the management of non-profit human-service institutions. Speaking from knowledge gained over the last 35 years through working with such clients as the American Red Cross and the Girl Scouts, Drucker illustrates how the "third sector", made up of not-for-profit organizations, is not only larger and more important than most people realize, but is also the fastest growing part of American society. Here, the author provides strategies for appraisal, innovation, and growth through discussions with top professionals from leading non-profit human-services institutions. But being mission focused, rather than procedure focused, Peter Drucker feels, it's easier to gauge performance, set standards, evaluate effectiveness, and see the bottom line when there is no bottom line.

Difficult to understand

I downloaded format 2, but with Peter's thick accent it was very difficult to understand a word he was saying. I don't recommend downloading this in an audio. Perhaps the book itself is better.

great advice, bad audio

Yes, the audio quality is terrible. Peter Drucker is perhaps the best authority on leadership, especially for non-profits. This books is not an abridgement of his classic work on non-profits, but a series of interviews that he gave on topics covered in his book. The interviews are facinating and full of wonderful information. It is a shame the audio quality is so poor.
