This is side A of the second tape of recordings of a course taught by Peter Drucker in 1978. This was recorded on February 7. At first the students are selecting which case studies they want to write about, so they won’t spend time discussing those in class. He talks specifically about why “How to Manage Subordinates” is a good choice. He then asks the class what companies are horribly managed and they give several responses, one of which sets Drucker off on a long discussion about Chrysler. He explains that some of the worst management strategies include basing decisions on what the dearly departed would have done, imitating the successes of others, and going for a change of pace just for the sake of doing something new. Drucker also talks about management difficulties and strategies for museums and universities and the importance of athletics. Students can be heard participating in the discussion.
