This is a video recording of a lecture given by Peter Drucker at George Washington University regarding self-development. Drucker discusses the importance of self-placement, or learning where one belongs and what one’s strengths are, citing Leonardo da Vinci and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart as examples. He goes on to discuss the concept of building learning into one’s process, explaining that knowledge changes rapidly and in order to be effective one needs to learn how to cultivate changing information. This leads Drucker to the subject of computers and the importance of asking what information one needs to do a job effectively. Drucker recommends looking beyond one’s organization as a starting point, and emphasizes thinking internationally even in a regional or local company.
