Are we at the dawn of a new management paradigm? Continuing to focus only on shareholder value and short-term financial results will not be adequate to tackle the huge challenges of the future. Neither will quixotic fights against the momentum of governance systems nor romantic do-gooder approaches. What we need is for managers to build on the fundamental strengths of capitalism – with its unmatched ability to generate wealth. Can management combine the creation of economic value with social value?
The 3rd Global Peter Drucker Forum in Vienna on November 3 and 4, 2011 will provide the platform for a dialogue about “what needs to be done” in this regard and “how to get there.” Concrete cases and initiatives will be presented and discussed.
The Forum will consist of major thematic sessions followed by a call to action, all linked by the common thread of building a new legitimacy for management.
- Management – aspiring to a new identity
- The latent potential within organizations
- Contributing to a functioning and prosperous society (case studies)
- One world – the case for the poorest of the poor
- Developing Managers for the 21st century
Corporate leaders and managers of institutions across all sectors are being called upon to shape the future. We now have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to unleash the power latent in people and organizations for the benefit of both business and society. It is a quest for legitimacy adequate to the vital role of management in modern societies.
