How Does Your Company Fare Against the Peter Drucker Checklist? | The New way of Work | Scoop.it
If an organization were to embody the core principles laid out by management icon Peter Drucker, what would it look like? And how does yours compare?

 

John Lasschuit ®™'s insight:

Drucker was a very well respected guru of management. Another was Stephen Covey senior who told us something Drucker never mentioned, that the possible performance gain from properly managing people is 500%. That is a huge number, almost unbelievable. But with the right actions, it is achievable.

I know education would get a failing grade and that includes at the local school level.

donhornsby's curator insight, October 8, 2013 6:04 AM

(From the article): You have a Drucker-like company if you:

 

• Have a strong mission and a cogent answer to the deceptively difficult question, “What business are we in?”

 

• Always remember that “there is only one valid definition of business purpose: to create a customer” while accepting that “quality in a product or service is not what the supplier puts in. It is what the customer gets out and is willing to pay for.”

 

• Push responsibility and accountability as far down into the organization as possible and follow this basic communications strategy: Listen down, talk up.

Where you fit into the future
John Lasschuit ®™'s insight:

By Kev Cooke. In talk of possible futures, we’re often presented with ‘all or nothing’ scenarios. . . ‘This will happen. This won’t happen’. . . The certainty and the drama make the headlines, but more likely, neither prediction will be entirely correct, the truth will lie somewhere in between – or somewhere else entirely.

Algorithms are already being used to aid legal work, journalism, and recruitment and to expand human capability. Assumptions about the type of jobs that will be automated are starting to be turned on their heads as a new class of ‘robot’ managers emerges. Meanwhile the blockchain ecosystem is creating the conditions for the emergence of distributed autonomous organisations that can operate outside human control, and make new ownership and value-creation models viable. What does all this mean for the world of work?
