Aileron is a testament to the value of maintaining focus. Its niche is to provide coaching to owners of small businesses. As it points out on its website, “Small business is the engine that drives economic growth.” Although it provides many online resources, Aileron has a striking, nature-based campus in Tipp City, Ohio; near Dayton, for onsite programs.
On September 30, The Drucker Institute announced the winner of the 2016 $100,000 Drucker Prize: ImproveCareNow Network. The Institute says that the winning organization has “transformed health and care by enabling patients, families, clinicians and researchers to collaboratively improve knowledge and outcomes related to Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis. It engages these stakeholders in a learning health network that provides real-time quality improvement, research and community-building for children with these conditions.”
The prize, which has been given since 1991, reflects two particular areas of focus within the long career of Peter Drucker: innovation and the strength of nonprofit organizations, and what businesses can learn from them.
