INTRODUCTION

THE ULTIMATE TEST FOR MANAGEMENT


For two-plus years in crisis mode, the overwhelming concern has been survival. Now, the leadership imperative shifts to performance. Recovering societies desperately need fresh injections of economic energy. Our institutions must perform like never before.

But does standing out as a “top performer” mean something different than it did just a few years ago? Traditionally, if you signed on with an organization known for its “performance obsession,” you knew to expect a tight focus on revenue growth and margins. Nonfinancial objectives – from employee engagement and local community impact to social justice and carbon footprints – were secondary targets at best.

That bottom-line emphasis has been challenged for a long time, but recent developments have created unprecedented pressures to rethink value creation and “the business of business.” With powerful investors placing different weights on all manner of ESG metrics, how does an organization align on key objectives? In “digitally transformed” enterprises, how can leaders do more to engage human hearts and minds? As workers return unevenly to offices, how can “hybrid” contribute to high performance? How great a setback will the “Great Resignation” prove to be?

At the Drucker Forum, we believe that gaining a performance edge still comes down to combining complementary strengths and inspiring people with opportunities to accomplish greater things together. We also believe, in our own gatherings, in the power of bringing together people whose perspectives are highly diverse but whose commitment to progress in management is shared and fundamental. Add your voice to this year’s Digital Summer Forum and help us explore the performance that matters.

Addressing Drucker’s Management Challenge for the 21st Century:

The Productivity of Knowledge Work
 

A conversation between Roger Martin, author, advisor and former Dean, Rotman School of Management, and
moderator David Champion, Senior Editor, Harvard Business Review

A long-time friend of the Drucker Forum, Roger Martin needs little introduction. In his latest book, he conducts a masterly deconstruction of the models that managers commonly – and unsuccessfully – use to address issues such as competition, use of data, culture, knowledge work, talent and M&A , and asks: isn’t there a better way? Here he will discuss his findings with David Champion, senior editor at HBR.

How Management Was Invented - New Insights into Peter Drucker's Pivotal Years
 

With Yō Makino, Journalist and Drucker expert, and
Richard Brem, Senior Advisor, Peter Drucker Society Europe
 
One of Peter Drucker’s last interviews was published as a book in Japan and more recently in China – yet it never came out in English. Focused on the 1940s and 1950s, it throws important light on the earlycareer of the man who would become known as the ‘father of management’. Drucker specialists Makino and Brem will share insights and interview sound clips to illustrate the trajectory of Drucker’s thought and how he came to embark on his life’s work of defining management as a discipline.
