In a legendary 70-year career, Peter Drucker, "The father of modern management," revolutionized modern business practices, transforming management theory into a serious discipline. His influence was far-reaching, extending to developments that included decentralization, privatization, and empowerment. He was among the first to address the emergence of the information society and, in 1959 he coined the term "Knowledge worker."The concept of core competencies may have been created for organizations, but today it applies to individuals as well. Drucker urged people to consciously articulate their own strengths.
