Peter Drucker’s class on effective decisions. During his lecture, he discusses: giving the right answer to the wrong question; reasons why it is rare to make a right decision, a decision as a commitment to right action; medical diagnosis as a decision making process; front-line people and crisis; Pomona College and James Blaisdell; not being able to find out why businesses lose money; probability theory; the practice of starving problems and feeding opportunities; money as no longer being a competitive advantage; the vulnerability of banking systems due to capital no longer being domestic; mom and pop shops as a social safety net and social security system in Japan; Thomas Edison as an executive; Drucker’s assignment as the chair of the first management meeting of the newly combined Chase Manhattan Bank; and the greatest transformation of the human condition. The video ends with the lecture in progress.
