Description
Assignment prompts by Professor Drucker for business economics and management courses. The first prompt asks readers to put themselves in the shoes of a friend to a young employee at a new company who needs to make an important decision, and clarify the problems for the employee. The second prompt asks the reader to decide what company executives, long dependent on a suddenly deceased executive leader, should do in the wake of his death, and asks the reader to consider any relevant theories on management practices and theory. The third prompt asks the reader to consider the position of the president of a pharmaceuticals company in the midst of competing opinions on the future of the company research budget from the Research Director and the Financial Vice President. The fourth prompt asks readers to consider the function and purpose of higher education and how it should be institutionally organized. The fifth prompt asks readers to consider what right or duty an organization - especially a business - has to impose its values on the community that surrounds it. The sixth prompt asks readers to consider job loss in traditional labor sectors - such as coal mining - due to advances in technology.
