What does performance mean in a post-Covid, crisis-ridden world? Management thinkers discuss it at the 14th Global Peter Drucker Forum in Vienna on Nov 17 & 18
"Difficult times call for a clear commitment to performance: without performance, there is no survival” highlighted Richard Straub, Founder and President of the Global Peter Drucker Forum and Vienna Center of Management Innovation. “The gains of recent decades ‘soft’ factors like empathy, individual well-being, and trust, aren’t enough in today’s crisis-ridden world. What we need now are management practices that combine freedom and creativity with responsibility and goal orientation. Communication of the organization’s purpose is crucial: Only those who understand the purpose of their work will go the extra mile to deliver top performance," he added.
Forum speakers included reputed names from the management scene in the US and Europe. They included Sharon MacBeath, Group HR Director at Hermès, Jean-Philippe Courtois, European Vice President Partnerships, Transformation at Microsoft, and Ranjay Gulati, best-selling author and a Professor at Harvard Business School. Prof. Gulati, presented ideas for increasing productive forces in teams through autonomy and purpose.
At the Gala Dinner that closes the first day of the conference, the winners of this year's Peter Drucker Challenge - a global essay competition for students and young entrepreneurs, were honored.
For those unable to attend the Forum in person, Drucker Forum TV provided an overview of past conferences. The content included informative interviews with speakers from this year's conference, including management luminaries like Gary Hamel (Faculty at the London School of Business, Director of the Management Lab), Rita Gunther McGrath (Professor of strategy at Columbia Business School) and Bob Kaplan (Author, and Professor at Harvard Business School).
Next year’s Global Peter Drucker Forum will take place on November 30 and December 1, 2023, again at the Vienna Hofburg.
