This is a video recording of an interview with Peter F. Drucker on nonprofit innovation. Drucker defines the purpose of a nonprofit organization as converting social or individual need into an opportunity, and defines innovation as “change that makes a difference,” or “creates a new dimension of performance." He cites Judson Center’s Life Program, recipient of the 1991 Peter F. Drucker Award for Nonprofit Innovation, as an example of a successful innovation by a nonprofit organization because it wed two needs into one opportunity. Drucker concludes by discussing the importance of nonprofit innovation to the future of society, arguing that the dependence on nonprofit organizations to fulfil community functions is increasing.
