Dear Reader,

EFMD is once again a strategic partner of the Global Peter Drucker Forum. The 5th Drucker Forum will take place in Vienna from November 14-15 and will gather some of the key leaders and management thinkers from around the world to discuss their views and work relating to the topic of "MANAGING COMPLEXITY".

The keynotes, panel discussions, interviews and deep dives in parallel sessions will span a vast range of view-points on complexity - from theory to practice - from economics, science, arts, and management philosophy to new mental models, management practices and skills.
