Managing Responsibly

30 August 2012

Alternative Approaches to Corporate Management and Governance

Bringing together the thoughts of scholars, looking for alternatives to the self-interest maximization so characteristic of existing corporate governance, Managing Responsibly explores the limitations of the thinking that dominates Western corporate and business culture.

Contributors draw on non-Western traditions and experience to suggest workable inter-cultural models that can enhance organizational effectiveness and help to avoid damage to and exploitation of communities and the environment.

Chapters written by specialists in economics, management, ethics, health sciences and history ensure a truly interdisciplinary approach. The book highlights the acute need for less self-interested approaches to management. In drawing on values from Indian and Maori traditions it proposes alternatives to Western models of business ethics and suggests ways to develop sustained ethical leadership in the contemporary globalised economy.
