The Five Most Important Questions You Will Ever Ask About your OrganizationBook - 2008
With Peter Drucker's five essential questions and the help of five of today's thought leaders, this little book will challenge readers to take a close look at the very heart of their organizations and what drives them. A tool for self-assessment and transformation, answering these five questions will fundamentally change the way you work, helping you lead your organization to an exceptional level of performance.
Peter Drucker's five questions are:
- What is our Mission? with Jim Collins
- Who is our Customer? with Phil Kotler
- What does the Customer Value? with Jim Kouzes

These essential questions, grounded in Peter Drucker's theories of management, will take readers on a exploration of organizational and personal self-discovery, giving them a means to assess how to be--how to develop quality, character, mind-set, values and courage. The questions lead to action. By asking these questions, readers can focus on why they are doing what they are doing in their work, and how to do it better. Designed for today's busy professionals, this brief, clear and accessible book will challenge readers to ask these provocative questions and it will stimulate spirited discussions and action within any organization, inspiring positive change and new levels of excellence, helping all to envision the future of theirs' or any organization.

Drucker is regarded as a divine being by many executives, and rightly so, given his success in leading companies from the brink and helping them to build effective strategies. In this collection, those who understand Drucker best explain the top five issues in running a business, including mission, customers, what the customer values, results, and plan. The collection begins with a keynote by Drucker on self-assessment and essay is on the five big questions, followed by essays on transformational leadership, the self-assessment process, and suggested questions to explore further. The editors include definitions of terms and additional resources, along with a subject index. Succinct and accessible, this would serve well for in-service training as well as self-study.
