During Peter Drucker's talk entitled "The Organization in Transition – Are the Traditional Functions Obsolete?" he discusses functions that remain centers of specialized knowledge and training, but cease to constitute the organizational base of the work itself. During his lecture, he talks about: accounting tools, Fiat car designers, Japan and retirement, Alfred Sloan and customers, the sequence of functional work, accounting and its functions, personnel as an operating function, center office staff, General Motors and its levels of management, the need for clarity and discipline when working with computers, the needs of business, hospital, and non-profit organizations, the importance of communication, and change in research.
