Description
This is the first part of an interview of Peter Drucker by Fred Harmon on his book about innovation and entrepreneurship. Harmon is the president of the AMA Presidents Association, a division of the American Management Association responsible for offering programs and services to CEOs and their top teams. He introduces Peter, then proceeds to ask several questions and have a discussion. They talk about development trends in technology, jobs and income, as well as sources of innovation within the organization. Peter mentions that very large corporations can be entrepreneurial, as well as newer smaller businesses. He also stresses the importance of systematic entrepreneurship, purposeful innovation, conservative risk taking, and finding opportunities in change. Drucker then goes into a lot of detail and gives examples about the seven sources of innovative opportunity within and outside of the enterprise. Drucker states that although it is less risky to take advantage of opportunities that have been systematically found rather than relying on the “bright idea”, there is nothing wrong with having success spring from a bright idea.
