Tammy Erickson Speaking at the 4th Global Peter Drucker Forum
Forum Taking Place in Vienna, November 15-16, 2012October 15, 2012 - Carlisle, MA - Tammy Erickson, founder and CEO of Tammy Erickson Associates, joins internationally renowned management thinkers at the 4th Global Peter Drucker Forum, “Capitalism 2.0: New Horizons for Managers”, November 15-16 in Vienna. As a keynote speaker, Erickson’s presentation: Ten Assumptions that Are No Longer True . . . But Still Shape Our Organizations Today, will look at translating today’s new reality into our organizations’ design.
The forum theme: Capitalism 2.0, (http://www.druckerforum.org/) will look from many perspectives at today’s turbulent world, marked by unprecedented economic and social challenges and the rapid change that is taking place. The event will be a platform to discuss what the “next capitalism” will look like from the vantage of those who actually lead the organizations and institutions that make up the fabric of society. How can the weaknesses of the system be repaired without crushing the innovative energies of free enterprise and competitive markets? And what is the role of managers in this transformation?
“It is an honor to be a part of the Peter Drucker Forum this year,” said Erickson, twice named one of the 50 most influential living management thinkers in the world by Thinkers50, the global ranking of business thinkers created by Des Dearlove and Stuart Crainer. “I look forward to joining my colleagues in Vienna to participate in a global dialogue about shaping the future of management and hence the future of society.”
In her presentation, Erickson will discuss the need for companies to “rethink” what they are and where they are going. “Today’s business organizations are perfectly designed - to respond to conditions that no longer exist,” she said. “The ways we’ve always done things – the approaches we learned in school, the ideas we grew up accepting as the normal order of things – simply don’t make sense anymore. Over the next several decades, we’ll see very different business entities take their place. New forms of leadership will emerge. Today’s organizations are ripe for change.”
Also participating in the forum: the London Business School’s Lynda Gratton, Havas Lab director and author Umair Haque, John Quelch, the dean of the China Europe International Business School (CEIBS), Paul Polman, the chief executive of Unilever, Patrick Deconinck, senior vice president for Western Europe at 3M; Peter Y. Solmssen, a member of the Management Board at Siemens; and Patrick de Cambourg, the president of Mazars.
