Peter F. Drucker Academy joins hands with Centennial College on presenting the Enterprise Management Radio Program “Management as a Liberal Art”, and it is on air from 9pm-10pm every Sunday night.
We are honored to have management expert, Dr. Royce Yuen, and Vice-President of a multinational corporation, Ms. Ruthia Wong, as our guest hosts for the program. Each episode we would invite an outstanding senior executive and prominent figure from different fields in Hong Kong to be our guest speaker, who will share with us on their ups-and-downs in their remarkable careers, and how they deal with the ever-changing market environment.
This week we have Board Chairman of Peter F. Drucker Academy, Dr. Darwin Chen, as our guest speaker. Over the course of 40-years career, Dr. Darwin Chen had been leading various governmental departments, and participated in the Sino-British negotiations over Hong Kong’s returns to China in the 80’s. As early as the 1970s, Dr. Chen has introduced and applied Drucker’s management practice into the Hong Kong government body.
Drucker’s concept of “Management as a Liberal Art”, is built on the “People-Oriented” management approach, which emphasizes that a true leader must obtain recognition and trust from all stakeholders, whilst adjust the mission and strategy along with the social change.
Drucker’s management philosophy helps Dr. Chen make effective decisions when managing both governmental and NGO organizations; which drives him to advocate the Drucker’s practice of management as a liberal art to the community, so as to actualize Drucker’s vision of creating a sustainable and healthy society through management.
