This is side B of the first tape from the second day of the annual Drucker Symposium of 1979. Bill Dill is the moderator, and Worth Loomis is the panelist. The topic for the day is managing productivity. Drucker continues his discussion from side A of industrial waste and pollution regulations, specifically in the Soviet Union. He also talks about the importance of organized abandonment for productivity, and how novels have a limited sales window. Before Loomis begins his talk on the matter, he jokes that he isn't confident in the productivity of his own company after hearing Drucker speak. Peter reassures him that he is a management "insultant", and only former clients are truly productive. Both men then alternate speaking on different points, including the types of commitment needed to be productive, the McGregor theory, Pims and the Strategic Planning Institute, and a specific case example of Texas Instruments. Drucker then begins a discussion on retail which continues on the next tape.
