Tammy Erickson Speaks in Vienna at the Prestigious Drucker Forum 2012
Leaders in Business and Academia Focused on a Call to Action for Improving CapitalismDecember 03, 2012 - Vienna – Tammy Erickson, founder and CEO of Tammy Erickson Associates, joined a global roster of speakers and participants at the two-day 4th Vienna Global Drucker Forum, where she presented her views on “Rethinking: Ten Assumptions that are No Longer True But Still Shape Today’s Organizations.” Executives, scholars and students attended the forum “Capitalism 2.0: New Horizons for Managers,” to learn about ways to maximizing shareholder value and consider what a new form of capitalism might look like.
“It was wonderful to be a part of this cutting edge event,” said Erickson, recently named, for the second time, to the Thinkers50, a premier biennial ranking of global business thinkers. “Having such a knowledgeable group of leading management thinkers come together to share their ideas and perspectives is a great opportunity to find some answers to key issues facing business and management.”
Richard Straub, former IBM Executive and President of the Peter Drucker Society Europe agreed, saying, “We are humbled that the Global Peter Drucker Forum is now recognized around the world as a premier venue to wrestle with key issues of management and society,” Straub said. “No one can provide easy answers to today’s greatest challenges, but we can have a serious dialogue that at least begins to move us in the right direction.”
According to forum organizers the 2012 Drucker Forum dealt with questions about the future of capitalism: 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?
Straub congratulated the keynote speakers for their contributions to the event. “It was a great privilege for the Drucker Forum to have such an extraordinary group of speakers, panelists and chairs with us,” he said. “Your contributions were instrumental to make this conference a great success - and to provide a deep experience to the participants. I appreciate the time and dedication you put into this event.”
