This is a paper about Drucker as a person, as well as his life and work. Individuals of merit who he has encountered through his life are mentioned, with emphasis on those who had a great impact on him. It then goes into detail about Drucker's work with Harold Smiddy and General Electric. Management by objectives is discussed at great length. This was most likely written by Ron Greenwood, possibly as a speech.
