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

14 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,664 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

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

12 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 1,126 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. --

Business as a humanity by Thomas Donaldson( Book )

19 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in English and held by 840 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume brings together some of the leading scholars in business ethics to address the question: Can business, and business education, be considered one of the humanities, or is it in a class by itself? At a time when business is coming under attack for its apparent transgressions, Business as a Humanity illuminates the special values that inhere in the business world. The chapters investigate business ethics in considerable detail and connect issues of teaching, theoretical ethics, and business education to a guiding concept of business as a humanity. Drawn from departments of humanities as well as from schools of business, the contributors endorse the metamorphosis of business education from its existing state - from a technical, scientifically-inspired regimen - to something broader, more inclusive, and more humanity-driven. While often divided about the best means for achieving this metamorphosis, the contributors all agree that it is necessary. The editors contribute an informative Introduction and an Epilogue to set the debate in its proper context. This latest volume in the acclaimed Ruffin Series in Business Ethics raises questions on the content and purpose of business education in general and business ethics in particular. It will be of interest to students, scholars, and professionals concerned with the role of ethical theory in business education and practice

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

41 editions published between 1984 and 2018 in English and Undetermined and held by 822 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

Ethics and agency theory : an introduction by Norman E Bowie( Book )

11 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 430 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 411 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
The power of and : responsible business without trade-offs by R. Edward Freeman( )

9 editions published between 2019 and 2020 in English and Undetermined and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The idea that business is only about the money doesn't hold true in the twenty-first century, when companies around the world are giving up traditional distinctions in order to succeed. Yet our expectations for businesses remain under the sway of a worldview that emphasizes profits for shareholders above all else. The Power of And offers a new narrative about the nature of business, revealing the focus on responsibility and ethics that unites today's most influential ideas and companies. R. Edward Freeman, Kirsten E. Martin, and Bidhan L. Parmar detail an emerging business model built on five key concepts: prioritizing purpose as well as profits; creating value for stakeholders as well as shareholders; seeing business as embedded in society as well as markets; recognizing people's full humanity as well as their economic interests; and integrating business and ethics into a more holistic model. Drawing on examples across companies, industries, and countries, they show that these values support persevering in hard times and prospering over the long term. Real-world success stories disprove the conventional wisdom that there are unavoidable trade-offs between acting ethically and succeeding financially. The Power of And presents a conceptual revolution about what it means for business to be responsible, providing a new story for us to tell in order to help all kinds of companies thrive"--

Cambridge handbook of research approaches to business ethics and corporate responsibility( Book )

15 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 199 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 theory : the state of the art by R. Edward Freeman( Book )

20 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and Danish and held by 186 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
