PMI President and CEO Sunil Prashara joins the global hub of leading voices in management for thought leadership, cutting-edge research, and advancement
Philadelphia: Project Management Institute (PMI) and the Peter Drucker Society Europe today announced the launch of a strategic partnership in which PMI President and CEO Sunil Prashara will join the Drucker Society International Advisory Board.
The Peter Drucker Society Europe is a non-profit organization that seeks to advance a critical, international dialogue between management practitioners, academics, and other stakeholders. Their mission is to give a new voice to management in all sectors of society, thus contributing to the continuous improvement of the practice of management. This partnership will complement PMI’s role as the world’s leading association for project professionals and changemakers.
“Both organizations are non-profit entities with the shared objective of improving the practice of management in every area of society, from government and public sector to private and not-for-profit bodies,” said Richard Straub, founder and president of the Global Peter Drucker Forum, the annual conference organized by the Drucker Society Europe.
“We are enabling millions of project leaders and changemakers to make important contributions to the world,” Prashara said. “PMI’s mission—to enable individuals to make ideas reality—aligns perfectly with Peter Drucker’s legacy of rigorous thought leadership around management as a systematic discipline entailing research, teaching, and practice. I see the Drucker Forum as a key platform and partner for raising awareness of the fundamental importance of management in building functioning modern societies.”
In support of their mission, the Peter Drucker Society Europe has designated the Global Peter Drucker Forum as a strategic initiative. The forum is an international management conference held annually in Peter Drucker’s home city of Vienna, Austria, and is often hailed as the “Davos of Management,” as it has become one of the leading management conferences in Europe. The Global Peter Drucker Forum 2021 is centered on the theme of “The Human Imperative: Navigating Uncertainty in the Digital Age.” Forum stakeholders will take part in a range of discussion on ways to resolve tensions between technocratic and humanistic approaches to crisis, to arrive at a synthesis of “change and continuity.”
