Strategic management : a stakeholder approach by R. Edward Freeman( Book )

Strategic Management: A Stakeholder Approach was first published in 1984 as a part of the Pitman series in Business and Public Policy. Its publication proved to be a landmark moment in the development of stakeholder theory. Widely acknowledged as a world leader in business ethics and strategic management, R. Edward Freeman's foundational work continues to inspire scholars and students concerned with a more practical view of how business and capitalism actually work. Business can be understood as a system of how we create value for stakeholders. This worldview connects business and capitalism with ethics once and for all. On the 25th anniversary of publication, Cambridge University Press are delighted to be able to offer a new print-on-demand edition of his work to a new generation of readers

Managing for stakeholders : survival, reputation, and success by R. Edward Freeman( Book )

13 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 548 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Managing for Stakeholders: Survival, Reputations, and Success, the culmination of twenty years of research, interviews, and observations in the workplace, makes a major new contribution to management thinking and practice. Current ways of thinking about business and stakeholder management usually ask the Value Allocation Question: How should we distribute the burdens and benefits of corporate activities among stakeholders? Managing for Stakeholders, however, helps leaders develop a mindset that instead asks the Value Creation Question: how can we create as much value as possible for all of our stakeholders."--Jacket
Business as a humanity by Thomas Donaldson( Book )

17 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in English and held by 465 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume contains contributions to the annual Ruffin Lecture series, in which researchers in business ethics addressed the question: can business, and business education, be considered one of the humanities, or is it in a class by itself?
Ethics and agency theory : an introduction by Norman E Bowie( Book )

11 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 446 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This work focuses on agency theory, which involves what is known as the principal-agent problem, a topic widely discussed in economics and management, and which is fast becoming a concern in business ethics today." "Previously, little written about agency theory has included a discussion of ethics. This work examines both. In Ethics and Agency Theory, the authors demonstrate that it is a characteristic of nearly all modern business firms - that the principals (the owners and shareholders) are not the same people as the agents (the managers who run the firms for the principals). They show that this creates situations in which the goals of the principals may not be the same as those of the agents. The principals typically want growth in profits and stock price, while agents are generally concerned with growth in salaries and positions in the hierarchy. The self-interest of the manager is apparently in conflict with the manager's duty to owners." "This book explores the ethical consequences of agency theory through contributions by ethicists, economists, and management theorists. By bringing together such a varied group of contributors (such as Richard DeGeorge, Lisa Newton, J. Gregory Dees, Barry Mitnick, and Bill Lawson) the editors provide a forum in which to promote this important dialogue between ethicists and economists."--Jacket
Environmentalism and the new logic of business : how firms can be profitable and leave our children a living planet by R. Edward Freeman( Book )

12 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and Chinese and held by 416 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Environmentalism and the New Logic of Business outlines a program for change that firms can use to maximize their profits and minimize their impact on the environment. Drawing on examples from corporations large (DuPont, McDonald's) and small (Johnsonville Sausage), the authors demonstrate how companies around the world are putting values and a concern for the environment to work to motivate employees, improve service levels, and respond to the constant pressure for innovation, competitive advantage, and care for the bottom line."--Jacket

Stakeholder theory : the state of the art by R. Edward Freeman( Book )

17 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and Danish and held by 107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1984, R. Edward Freeman published his landmark book, Strategic Management: A Stakeholder Approach, a work that set the agenda for what we now call stakeholder theory. In the intervening years, the literature on stakeholder theory has become vast and diverse. This book examines this body of research and assesses its relevance for our understanding of modern business. Beginning with a discussion of the origins and development of stakeholder theory, it shows how this corpus of theory has influenced a variety of different fields, including strategic management, finance, accounting, management, marketing, law, health care, public policy, and environment. It also features in-depth discussions of two important areas that stakeholder theory has helped to shape and define: business ethics and corporate social responsibility. The book concludes by arguing that we should re-frame capitalism in the terms of stakeholder theory so that we come to see business as creating value for stakeholders

Stakeholders by Robert Phillips( Book )

8 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This landmark book takes a retrospective look at the most important and influential works in the study of stakeholders since Freeman's 1984 publication, "Strategic management : a stakeholder approach". 2009 marked the 25th anniversary of this watershed in organizational scholarship, so now is an excellent time for Phillips and Freeman to revisit this topical and exciting subject. From the tremendous upsurge in the literature, the editors have carefully selected ground-breaking works on topics including corporate governance, stakeholder-agency theory, management models, ethical theory and stakeholder orientation
Bridging the values gap : how authentic organizations bring values to life by R. Edward Freeman( Book )

12 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Business has a values problem. It's not just spectacular public scandals like Enron (which, incidentally, had a great corporate values statement). Many companies fail to live up to the standards they set for themselves, alienating the public and leaving employees cynical and disengaged-resulting in lower productivity, less innovation, and sometimes outright corruption. The reason, argue top scholars and consultants Edward Freeman and Ellen Auster, is that most companies' values are handed down from on high, with no employee input or discussion. This practically invites disconnects between inte
Cambridge handbook of research approaches to business ethics and corporate responsibility( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"While there is a large and ever-expanding body of work on the fields of business ethics and corporate social responsibility (CSR), there is a noted absence of a single source on the methodology and research approaches to these fields. In this book, the first of its kind, leading scholars in the fields gather to analyse a range of philosophical and empirical approaches to research in business ethics and CSR. It covers such sections as historical approaches, normative and behavioural methodologies, quantitative, qualitative and experimental perspectives, grounded theory and case methodologies, and finally a section on the role of the researcher in research projects. This book is a valuable and essential read for all researchers in business ethics and CSR, not only for those starting out in the fields, but also for seasoned scholars and academics"--
Stakeholder engagement : clinical research cases by R. Edward Freeman( Book )

8 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book offers a case-study approach to stakeholder theory that moves beyond theoretical analysis to the applied. As stakeholder theory has moved into the mainstream of management thinking in business ethics and a number of the management disciplines, there is an increasing need to explore the subtleties of stakeholder engagement via examples from practice. The case studies in this volume explore a number of aspects of the idea of stakeholder engagement, via the method of clinical case studies. Edited by leading scholars in the field of business ethics and stakeholder theory, this text affords a solid grounding in theory, brought to new levels of applied understanding of stakeholder engagement
