The Drucker Society of Georgia Launches on Peter F. Drucker’s 100th Birthday

(BUSINESS WIRE)--The Drucker Society of Georgia is launching on November 19, 2009, which is the 100th birthday of the late and legendary management thinker Peter F. Drucker. The mission of the Georgia chapter is to improve the lives of young people in Georgia by applying Peter Drucker’s principles—in conjunction with Georgia educational, government, community and business leaders.

The Drucker Society of Georgia will work with leaders in Georgia education, government, community and business organizations who are committed to improving the lives of young men and women in a sustainable way. Over time, the organization plans to engage 100 leaders who can impact the lives of 1 million young men and women through institutional reinvention—using the Drucker-inspired principles and tools articulated in Reinvent Your Enterprise.

The Drucker Society of Georgia is being co-founded by Jack Bergstrand and Rod Walker. Walker will serve as president of the organization, and he is a current board member of Communities in Schools of Atlanta, past board member of 100 Black Men of America and a graduate of Leadership DeKalb. Walker is a business strategy executive at The North Highland Company, holds BS and MS degrees from Clark Atlanta University, and has an Executive MBA from the Kenan-Flagler Business School at UNC.

Jack Bergstrand is author of Reinvent Your Enterprise, a book endorsed by Rick Wartzman, executive director of the Drucker Institute. He is founder and CEO of Brand Velocity, Inc., the Atlanta-based project acceleration company based on Drucker’s principles. Bergstrand was previously head of the global information technology function of The Coca-Cola Company, is a doctoral candidate at The George Washington University, and has a master’s degree in management from the Stanford Graduate School of Business.

To launch this effort, 100 free copies of Reinvent Your Enterprise will be distributed to educational, government, community and business leaders across Georgia on Peter Drucker’s 100th birthday—sponsored by Brand Velocity, Inc.
