Description
This letter is from Peter F. Drucker to Mel Hurni. Its purpose is to show how challenging it will be to design and implement the training program for the Operations Research and Synthesis Consulting Service. Drucker states that it is time to transition the focus away from "sell" and onto "do", even though as a service their goal is not to "do" but to enable others to "do". This letter has an original signature, a postscript, and handwritten notes.
