Description
This is a paper by Peter Drucker presented at the Eighth Annual Engineering Management Conference, and titled "Managing Tomorrow". He explores the gap in experience and perspective between the current management leaders and those who will step up to take their place. According to Drucker, the average age of top management people is sixty. These are men who grew up during and lived through, World War I, depression, Communism, and the New Deal. They will be replaced by men who were raised in time of full employment, and a surge of world economy and trade, but also "the shadow of the cloud of Hiroshima". Drucker believes that as the first generation to enter the work force with management already a part of business, these men will take it for granted, unlike the "founding fathers" whose shoes they fill. Drucker also states that the new management leaders will face many challenges in different areas, but one of the most important will be making management international, even among countries that possess no foundation for it. This copy contains original markings in the margins.
