Global Peter F. Drucker Forum 2017
Just how much Peter F. Drucker put his stamp on and influenced management can best be seen in the high level body of management thinkers who appear every year in his honor at the Global Peter Drucker Forum. Since its premiere in November 2009, the event transforms the Austrian capital once a year into a genuine management Mecca.
This year’s forum will take place under the motto “Growth & Inclusive Prosperity: The Secular Management Challenge” in Vienna from November 16-17, 2017.
We need growth more than ever – with billions of people around the globe in quest of social, economic, spiritual wellbeing and dignity. Even in the developed world we are facing persistent unemployment and underemployment that may be further exacerbated by the pervasive deployment of Robotics and Artificial Intelligence.
However, with regard to the improvement of education systems in combination with communication, learning- and knowledge technologies we have more human potential than ever at our hands. It appears though that the human capacity-capability gap is widening and much of this latent human potential goes unused.
The conference will focus on the management challenges for private and public sector organizations and the civil society in the context of a fast-changing, complex and volatile environment. It will also keep in perspective a well-functioning and fair society where broad-based prosperity in all its dimensions must be the objective.
Malik is member of the Advisory Board of the European Peter F. Drucker Society and has participated as panelist at the conference a lot of times. With its renowned speakers this forum provides the unique opportunity for getting to know intelligent solutions for the mastering of this historically extraordinary situation.
Fredmund Malik & Peter Drucker
Peter F. Drucker was by far the most important management thinker of the twentieth century. He was the first to recognize the importance of management as a function for society and to make management learnable and teachable. Professor Fredmund Malik and Peter Drucker had a close relationship for many years. They met regularly to discuss current developments in management. What interested Peter Drucker most was the development of Malik’s holistic system. Peter Drucker died a few days ahead of his 96th birthday on November 11, 2005.
