This is a video recording of a lecture given by Peter Drucker at the Edward Jones headquarters in St. Louis, Missouri. Drucker discusses the firm’s accomplishments, noting the shift from defining clients in terms of region to demographics. He goes on to describe broad shifts toward longer life expectancy and the desire to not outlive one’s financial resources, and the broadening of affluence. Drucker also praises Edward Jones’s organization form, which features a strong center of values and commitments, while also fostering representatives who are entrepreneurs in their area. He goes on to discuss issues Edward Jones may face in the future, such as choosing what elements to maintain as the firm expands, and the importance of computer and information literacy. At the end of the lecture, John Bachmann presents Drucker with a plaque dedicating the Peter F. Drucker Auditorium, January 20, 1995.
