Dear Drucker Challenge participants, and mentors, advocates and supporters,
For most of the Challenge participants the journey started much longer before submitting their essay on the subject
"Managing Oneself in the Digital Age - The Human Side of Technology".
A journey that sculpted their lives as they scrupulously prepared: learning to write an essay, being tenacious,
by participating in a contest across the planet to earn a place in the Drucker Forum in Vienna. The theme of the
Drucker Challenge 2015 needed yet another skill: Being able to looking inside oneself to get the storyline
with convincing arguments and to grasp that special Drucker spirit.
Our jury panel for the 1st round of judging is now starting. Those who are shortlisted to be the best 15
will be announced by early August, with a final ranking 1 -10 by August 31.
We warmly thank those who have submitted an essay for the Drucker Challenge. Our thanks also go to our sponsor
Tata Consultancy Services, our premium partner The Frances Hesselbein Leadership Institute, and our global media
partner Harvard Business Review.
See you soon for the exciting results.

DRUCKER CHALLENGE SESSION WITH PETER DAY
We are looking forward seeing Peter Day from the BBC, who has accepted the challenge to moderate the
Global Peter Drucker Forum 2015 parallel sessions with the winning authors.
After having interviewed the Challenge winners 2014 he enthusiastically noted "These young people bring new perspectives
which are essential for the vitality of the Drucker Forum".
THE PETER DRUCKER CHALLENGE
Introduced in 2010, and organized by Peter Drucker Society Europe, the Drucker Challenge was conceived as an international
essay contest to raise awareness of the works and ideas of Peter Drucker among young people - the new
generation poised to build on a management philosophy that puts the human being at its center. The contest is
designed to complement and enrich the interdisciplinary exchange of views and ideas at the annual
Global Peter Drucker Forum.
