Title
Leading the innovative organization
Synopsis
In this unit Peter Drucker presents his latest thinking on innovation, an issue with close links to the Information Revolution. As he explains, today an organization needs to go beyond innovation to become a "change leader".

Every new key invention (i.e. the railroad) brings about a change in mentality in society, and after that, big innovations flourish developed from the new technology. But very often strategy is more important than the innovation itself -the market never is where the inventor thinks it will be. Being a "change leader" company: having the right mindset for innovation. The need for change in big and medium-sized corporations. The fundamental changes in marketing that can be expected from the Internet. How the new distribution channels change who the customers are, how customers buy, what they buy, their behaviour, saving patterns, industry structure...

Title
Can the knowledge worker be led?
Synopsis
Peter Drucker was the first to coin the term "Knowledge Worker". He talks about how organizations should lead Knowledge Workers, the main characters in the Information Revolution - how to retain them, how to motivate them, making them productive, and the danger of stock options.

Performance in knowledge-based industries will come to depend on running the institution so as to attract, hold and motivate knowledge workers. Some challenges: knowledge workers now outlive the employing organizations, measuring knowledge work productivity, implementing continuing education to avoid premature obsolescence of knowledge ...Motivating and holding knowledge workers: are stock options the best way? From subordinates into fellow executives, and from employees - however well paid - into partners, instead of mere shareholders. Basing leadership on values instead of charisma or greed. The importance of making people investments with strategic vision.
