Publisher Comments:

Peter F. Drucker Foundation for Nonprofit Management

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
