Description
Peter Drucker’s talk from the 1995 Town Hall Los Angeles entitled “From Computer Literacy to Information Literacy.” He shares how people obtained drivers licenses in 1925 London, England. Drucker talks about the computer, and the fundamental change that occurred in 1950, and its impact on operations. He says that information is your tool, and that tools can only do certain things, so you have to know what your tool can and cannot do. Drucker believes that accounting is going to change, and that you will need to know about the global economy. He says that you will have to learn how to indoctrinate the whole office in information responsibility. Drucker goes on to answer questions from the audience, and assesses the quality of business education in the United States compared to around the world.
