Where Do We Start?

peter-druckerI’m currently reading The Essential Drucker, a collection of Drucker’s best works on management over six decades. Drucker is quite clear on what he believes the purpose of every business to be, what defines it, is at its core and where to start – from the Outside looking In! (bolding mine)

“The answer to the question, What is our business? Is the first responsibility of top management. With respect to the definition of business purpose and business mission, there is only one such focus, one starting point. It is the customer. The customer defines the businessTo satisfy the customer is the mission and purpose of every business. The question, What is our business? Can, therefore, be answered only by looking at the business from the outside, from the point of view of the customer and market.”
