Drucker forum
We are pleased to invite you to participate virtually in the 9th Global Peter Drucker Forum that will be broadcasted worldwide live on 16 and 17 November.

This year’s programme includes a special parallel session on the future of Management Education and Research in the context of Growth and Inclusive Prosperity.

The panel will be composed of:
  • Santiago Ingiuez, President of IE University and ASTD;
  • Julia Wang, Leader of the Drucker Academy Hong Kong;
  • Heiko Hutmacher, Chief HR officer of Metro Group;
  • Johan Roos, Chief Academic Officer of Hult ;
  • Tony O'Driscoll, Head of the Duke CE Leadership Initiative, who will moderate the session.
As technology marches forward through there relentless unfolding of time, it is leaving in its wake wave-upon-wave of disruption at many levels: Societal, Economic, Institutional and Commercial.

This session serves as the "opening chapter" of a book that is yet to be written on how the practice of leadership, the discipline of leadership development and the approach to conducting management research must evolve to maintain synchrony and relevance in an increasingly connected, complex and changeable business environment.  In a society of organisations and institutions that are facing unprecedented volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity we must revisit the fundamental existential question on the nature and purpose of leadership. Why does leadership exist and what is its purpose in a seemingly paradoxical world where the more digitally connected we become the more physically polarized we behave. Maintaining continuity by deftly navigating these polarities while maintaining ongoing growth and prosperity for all is the pre-eminent leadership challenge today.

Our intention during the session is to surface the most important questions and positions that leading thinkers and practitioners have around:
  • The role that leadership must play in maintaining continuity during increasingly disruptive times
  • The leadership qualities and capabilities required to navigate the polarities and tensions the emerge in a new normal of constant disequilibrium
  • The mechanisms available to develop these qualities and capabilities at the pace and scale required maintain continuity, growth and prosperity in times of accelerated discontinuity
