Drucker on Asia
A Dialogue Between Peter Drucker and Isao Nakauchi
By: Peter F. Drucker and Isao Nakauchi
Review by: Lydia Morris Brown
The growth economies of the world in the past ten years have been the countries of mainland Asia, as well as some countries of Latin America. Moreover, there are no longer any superpowers. Information is beginning to affect business strategies and structures to the point where the traditional business organization is becoming obsolete. The work forces in every developed country are increasingly knowledge workers, who pose a different productivity challenge than the one posed by the disappearing blue-collar industrial worker. What do these cataclysmic transformations mean for an individual country and its economy, specifically for Japan?
What do they mean for society, the individual company, the individual, and especially for the individual executive or professional? These are the questions asked and answered in Drucker on Asia, the insightful and provocative dialogue between Peter F. Drucker and Isao Nakauchi.
