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

32 editions published between 1984 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 684 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 549 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 464 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 447 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."--BOOK 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 420 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

Bridging the values gap : how authentic organizations bring values to life by R. Edward Freeman( Book )

12 editions published in 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 60 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. To bridge this gap between the "talk" and the "walk", Freeman and Auster provide a process through which organizations can collectively surface deeply held values that truly resonate with everyone, from top to bottom. Their Values Through Conversation (VTC) process focuses on four key types of values conversations: introspective, historical, connectedness, and aspirational. VTC ensures that values are dynamic and evolving, not static words on a wall or a website. Freeman and Auster offer advice, real-world examples, and sample questions to help you create values that are authentic and embraced because they are rooted in the lived experience of the organization. --
La théorie des parties prenantes by Maria Bonnafous-Boucher( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in French and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La notion de partie prenante est généralement utilisée pour désigner un acteur impliqué dont les attentes sont à prendre en compte par les décideurs privés et publics. Les parties prenantes sont celles d'une entreprise, autres que ses actionnaires, qui ont un lien avec son activité, la subissant ou ayant une influence sur elle. La référence aux parties prenantes renvoie à une conception de l'entreprise fondée sur une gouvernance négociée, où la maximisation de la valeur pour l'actionnaire n'est pas le critère ultime. Dans ce modèle, les enjeux et les intérêts de ceux qui ne sont pas les actionnaires et les investisseurs sont primordiaux pour la prospérité de l'entreprise, au-delà de la propriété du capital. Ce livre rend compte de l'importance de cette théorie et tente de la faire reconnaître comme un modèle à la fois concret et prospectif de la démocratie en entreprise, permettant de poser les éléments d'un contrat social au sein d'un capitalisme mondial patrimonial salarié
