Peter Drucker Special Lecture: Management-Responsibility and Regulation

-
Erwin-Schrödinger-Saal
Plenary / Panel
German and English language

The recent financial crisis has demonstrated the tension between formal regulation and responsibility of management. According to Peter Drucker the first responsibility of management is to achieve economic success for its core business without knowingly doing harm to others. Yet, managers do not operate in a vacuum – they are subject to market forces and to the demands of capital markets. Can managers be trusted to act responsibly or do they need to be guided by heavy regulation? What is the right balance between regulation and self-control with regard to risks and opportunities for society?
