Description
Peter Drucker discusses in detail his life experience and work in management, with particular emphasis on his writings. In this interview, he talks about his work with General Motors and the conclusions about decentralization, human labor, and executive management he drew from that work. He also tells of what he calls a "basic sickness" that he felt about Hitler's rise to power in Europe. He discusses his experience working under Henry Luce, citing him as someone he learned a great deal from, particularly because of Luce's "uncanny ability to focus on the one central issue". He also talks about his experiences living in and traveling to Europe.
