This is track three of an interview series with Peter Drucker about innovation and entrepreneurship, conducted by Fred Harmon. Drucker discusses the practice of entrepreneurship, with an emphasis on the need to accept systematic abandonment. He describes the idea of a business x-ray, which involves looking at all of a given business’s products, technologies, and markets, deciding where they are on a product’s lifecycle, and forming a realistic view of where to put resources and efforts. The recording concludes as Drucker discusses the entrepreneurial personality, which he considers an elusive concept.
