You cited Drucker, who apparently wrote that

"The productivity of the knowledge worker is still abysmally low. It has
probably not improved in the past 100 or even 200 years -- for the simple
reason that nobody has worked at improving the productivity. All our work
on productivity has been on the productivity of the manual worker."

He fails, as do some others, to take into account how Power and it's
security guard, Privilege, play an essential part in building wall
preventing organizational learning of the most productive kind.

It seems logical that "business" mirrored behaviors among humans, behavior
which long preceded what we could refer to as enterprise or commerce.

So many events surrounding us leave little room for optimism, while
allowing cynicism to flourish.

Warm regards,
