About this Course

The Drucker Playbook arms public sector employees with tools for individual, team and organizational effectiveness. 

The Playbook is based on the premise—one championed by Peter Drucker—that within effective organizations, people at every level see themselves as leaders. With that in mind, the Drucker Playbook is a leadership-training program, designed specifically for the public sector. It provides practical tools and lessons for impact and results that are ready to be implemented by government employees today—whether you are an executive, department head, midlevel manager, supervisor, or front-line employee.

The course is delivered through: lectures by Drucker Institute instructors; dynamic animations to help you visualize concepts; adapted readings from Drucker books; original video/audio footage of Drucker himself; and engaging activities to get you moving from ideas to results.

The Playbook is divided into seven modules: 

  • The Building Blocks of Leadership
  • Drucker's Five Most Important Questions
  • Managing Oneself
  • Effective Communication
  • Planned Abandonment and Innovation
  • Measuring the Right Things the Right Way
  • Accountability and Values

After each module, you'll come away with a concrete, personalized game plan for taking these lessons and putting them into practice immediately.
