Drucker ranks Apple second best-managed company

In the latest ranking from the Drucker Institute, Apple came in #2, placing it squarely below Amazon and above Google. According to The Wall Street Journal today, this is the first ranking of US companies based on the principals of Peter Ducker, a renown business export.

The management ranking scores “how well a business does in five areas that reflect Mr. Drucker’s core principles: customer satisfaction, employee engagement and development, innovation, social responsibility and financial strength.”

Apple scored well in many of the categories, but doing best in innovation and finance. It only received 4/5 in customer, employee and social aspects.

Apple’s final score of 88.4 was just behind Amazon, who inched them out with an 89. Many other tech firms appeared in the top 10 including Alphabet, IBM, Microsoft, Cisco and Nvidia.
