Questions about Peter Drucker's questions....

Peter Drucker is known for asking deceptively simple questions, in that answering them "invariably turns into an exigent excercise," as Drucker expert Rick Wartzman aptly puts it.

Why so? What makes an answer right? Why is it that Drucker seems to be the only one who readily knows the answers? As well, if Drucker's questions don't necessarily lead to the right answers, what are they really good for? These are some of the obvious questions surrounding Drucker's questions, which people seeking wisdom from his teachings seem to have taken for granted.

Taking some hints from nature, this concept map is an attempt to probe into some such questions, as a tribute to commemorate the 100th birthday of this great guru this year.
