About the Book
What Would Drucker Do Now?: Solutions to Today's Toughest Challenges from the Father of Modern Management, by Rick Wartzman
(current price is around $19.90 for the paperback plus shipping on Amazon, and $14.30 for the kindle version. The book is available from PMI members on the eReads and Reference service at no charge to PMI members)
More than anyone of his time, Peter Drucker understood how the individual, the organization, and society are interrelated. And no one better recognized and articulated the challenges facing all three—or came up with more practical solutions to those challenges. Rick Wartzman has led the Drucker Institute since 2007 and in his popular online column for Bloomberg has applies his understanding of Drucker’s ideas and ideals to current issues. What Would Drucker Do Now? culls Wartzman’s best columns into a single volume with seven thematic sections that bring Drucker’s insights to problems confronting organizations today.

5:30pm - 6:30pm: Open book discussion
Free meeting for Chapter members.
Preregistration, reading the book before the meeting, and bringing a copy (e-book okay) of the book to the meeting is required.
Purchase the book through Amazon at http://goo.gl/Rp1tXI . E-book version is fine. This is also likely to be available through the library, check it out.
Based on the amount of time you will spend in self-directed study of negotiation – we estimate four to six hours of reading, which converts to 4 - 6 PDUs for qualified PMPs who are under the 30 PDU limit for their current three year certification cycle. Please note that these PDUs will need to be reported as Category C: Self-Directed Learning. For full details on PDU reporting refer to the PMP Handbook.
About the Monthly Book Club
The Monthly Book Club is a forum for talking about books that touch on the widely varied challenges of project and program management. There is no Book Club membership. Anyone can sign up to join our conversations. There are just three key requirements: preregistration, reading the book before the meeting, and bringing a copy of the book to the meeting. Note that you should sign up early as we limit the discussion to fifteen people so that everyone has a chance to share their opinion.
Come to the Book Club with an open mind and prepare to have your understanding adjusted as you hear about the book through the voices of your professional peers.
Studying project management and related topics through books is recognized and rewarded by PMI in PDUs, roughly on the basis of one hour of study equals one PDU. Continued certification as a PMP requires the accumulation of these valuable credits and we are pleased to offer this opportunity to obtain both the important training and the educational credit associated with it.
