The Drucker Prize, and More Innovations from the Drucker Institute
May 9th, 2016
The Drucker Institute recently gave a new name for, and a new twist to the nonprofit innovation award it gives annually. What’s now called the Drucker Prize will still award $100,000 to the winning nonprofit organization, and the 2016 prize applications are now open. The new twist is a special learning platform that will be available to applicants. According to the Institute’s website, it “blends the timeless wisdom of Peter Drucker with the thinking of some of today’s brightest management minds.” The 2015 prize winner was Kids v Cancer.
Ten years ago, in May 2006, I was part of a group of people who met on the campus of the Drucker School, at the Claremont Graduate University to discuss Drucker’s legacy and how it could be extended, which ultimately led to the formation of the Institute. Today, all of the above-mentioned educational, prize-awarding, advising and branding factors reflect a look into how a modern institution balances honoring the work of one of the world’s greatest visionaries, while creating new paths for the future.
