This is side A of the first tape from the annual Drucker Symposium of 1987. This recording is from the AM session of day one, on April 29, 1987. William D. Guth is the moderator and Dale Zand is the panelist. The topic for the day is human resource management. In this section Drucker states that he is going to make predictions for how things will be in ten years, despite having received advice against it. According to him the organization of tomorrow will be modeled after a symphony orchestra instead of the military of the 1870s as it has been in the past. He also discusses management problems and successes he has encountered throughout his personal and career experiences, including work with banks and school boards. Drucker states that it is important for jobs to be challenging for employees and this sometimes requires that human resources restructure positions. He also explores the way organizations are structured, optimizing effectiveness, and what will need to be learned for future organizations.
