Description
This is part two of an audio recording of a class on entrepreneurship and innovation taught by Peter Drucker. He compares taking action in organizations during a crisis, to performing surgery on human beings. He says that it doesn't always have to be done right away, sometimes it is better to wait, but most often it needs to happen immediately. Drucker goes on to explain that it is clear when a plan is poorly managed because so much happens, while well organized and managed plans are dull because they have no crises. Drucker also advises that “if you don't respect yourself you will not be respected” and that “the human animal is prone to politics”. He then discusses Edythe Gaines and how she was the first black woman to be a principal of a school. She successfully ran the toughest school in the Bronx, despite Drucker's description of her as less than five feet tall and appearing as though she were only 19. Drucker then describes Wolfgang Pauli and Oskar Kokoschka. He also talks about the problems with graduate students and how schools train us to give answers and focus on making sure they are correct, rather than the questions.
