drucker was long hailed as one of the visionaries of management.
reassuringly, in a recent article he pooh-poohed china's so-called miracle and spoke well of india. since he had forecast various things like the rise of automation and of the knowledge worker, this is a good sign.

Special collection: Peter Drucker and the "knowledge manager"
The influential management theorist Peter F. Drucker died on November 11th. He leaves behind a remarkable body of work, developed over more than 50 years, that not only addressed the major themes in modern thinking on management from marketing to organization but also often anticipated them by decades. The great and growing collection of outside work that Drucker's thinking has generated testifies to the seminal place of his ideas on the role of knowledge in companies. These articles from the McKinsey Quarterly archive look at how companies can maximize the benefits from their in-house knowledge.
