Description
This recording is part two of the first day of a course being taught by Peter Drucker. It is for current executive management students but also alumni and colleagues. The topics are based on ideas for his next book. He begins by discussing major issues he thinks will be arising in the future and if and how political systems can organize to cope with them. Drucker states that when looking back at history the truly great divides among nations were not caused by left over petty squabbles, but by the inability of the system to organize itself for new challenges. Most governments focus on the adversarial side of things and not on finding what holds us together. This concerns Drucker because he says even though it is easier, it will not work in the future. He then discusses what makes a good labor union, the effect they have, and when Hitler took over the German labor union. He also states that many problems are not being solved, they become irrelevant because “one never solves a problem, one outlives it”. One of the new realities is that it is dangerous to focus on problems of yesterday instead of looking ahead. Drucker says “power can only be contained by power and management has to have lots of power”. He announces that the following week, the topic will be the functions of limits of government.
