The technology exists for organisations to achieve real-time monitoring of everything from training to mission-critical objectives, so Keith Denton wonders why they aren't using it. Renowned management expert Peter Drucker believes an information revolution is in progress.

Managing strategy is essential to find innovative ways to add value, wealth, and even meaning to lives of employees.
