During Peter Drucker’s lecture regarding knowledge and knowledge workers he begins by discussing self-development and how to discover one’s personal strengths and capitalize on them in business. He then launches into a discussion on how to assess the productivity of knowledge workers. From there he explains the origins of the teaching profession and the role in which Napoleon played in improving both the training and productivity of teachers. Also in this lecture he discusses the advancements in the training of nurses in the last thirty years. He explains that most nurses spend the majority of their time on paperwork rather than utilizing the skills they were trained to do. Later in this lecture he gives a brief history of the development of knowledge workers. The video begins with the lecture in progress. The lecture continues beyond the length of the tape recording.
