Coffee House Book Review – “The Drucker Lectures” by Peter F. Drucker

Tanveer Naseer

In this talk, he shares the story of how Vienna Philharmonic conductor Gustav Mahler changed how orchestras perform by having his musicians on duty for five nights, but only playing for four nights. On the fifth night, Mahler had the musicians sit in the audience to hear how their colleagues play together. It’s also the reason why some of his most thought-provoking lectures are not on management, but on the field of education.
