In this audio recording Peter F. Drucker talks about his audio book, “Drucker on Management.” This is the second part of a two-part discussion entitled “Organization Structure in Transition.” He begins by describing that each company needs to have a structure than focuses on the mission. He says that stability and continuity must be part of the organization structure as well. He talks about the manager’s role in seeing that a structure is being followed. Drucker discusses the differences between free form and hierarchical organization. He ends the tape by saying that a structure can only be as strong as the individuals working in it.
