This is side B of the first tape from the annual Drucker Symposium of 1979. Dale Zand is the moderator, and William Guth is the panelist. In this section, Drucker finishes his talk about business strategies. He talks about the importance of keeping a business flexible and strong, and closes with the adage "the simple things are harder to do". Then Guth begins his discussion on the topic. He discusses popular theories of the Boston Consulting Group, and the Pims group, and compares them to his own statistical findings. He disagrees, and states that they are "overbought" concepts. Guth also talks about the specific policies of Crown Cork & Seal, a company that makes tin cans.
