The Drucker Society of Austria has announced that it is accepting early-bird registration for its global forum, titled “Managing in the Next Society,” to be held in Vienna on November 18 and 19.

The forum will seek to address key questions such as:

  • What will the next society be like? What does this mean for management?
  • How can we unleash the latent productive and creative energies of people in organizations? Will Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and new media finally fulfill their promise to enable and empower management and workers?
  • Do we have the management capabilities in our institutions and organizations to achieve a step change in innovation and value creation?
  • What can we learn from emerging economies?
  • Given the daunting challenges ahead, do we need to reinvent the practice of management? Or do we need to better apply the basic management principles that have already been defined by Peter Drucker and others?

Leading the discussion on these and other topics will be leaders from business, academia, the nonprofit arena and the public sector. Among them will be futurist Matthias Horx; the London Business School’s Lynda Gratton; Julian Birkinshaw, author of Reinventing Management: Smarter Choices for Getting Work Done; Adrian Wooldridge of The Economist; Andrew Keen, a close observer of Internet culture; and Norwegian economist Peter Lorange. Also taking part will be Rick Wartzman, executive director of the Drucker Institute.

The Vienna forum is part of the Drucker Centennial, a global celebration marking the 100th anniversary of Peter Drucker’s birth. To learn more and to see a full calendar of Centennial events, please click here.
