Peter Drucker predicted in his 1959 book, The Landmarks of Tomorrow, that the most valuable assets of a 21st Century institution (business or non-business) would be knowledge workers and their productivity. In this episode, I explore this idea, and how it has played out (since we are almost 60 years downstream from Drucker’s prediction). Not only was he largely right, but I argue that we are all knowledge workers now due to the nature of our present reality.
This is also our last episode of 2017, and I take the opportunity to look back on what has been presented in the podcast in the last year or two, and consider whether 2018 will continue in a similar vein. I also mention some new offerings that I am considering for the coming year and request your inputs.
