Ethics and Organizations

Author: Josep M. Lozano
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9789401139410
Release Date: 2012-12-06
Genre: Philosophy

This book is a study of the core issues in the field of business ethics from both an historical and a systematic standpoint. It analyzes corporate social responsibility, stakeholders, ethical codes, corporate cultures, and other issues. But the analysis takes place within a framework specially designed by the author in order to integrate the various dimensions of present-day business ethics. This integration is linked to an interpretation of business ethics as an organizational learning process in the context of the social and cultural changes caused by the emergence of a knowledge society. This approach makes it possible to adopt a focus and language, which can simultaneously take into account ethical concerns and corporate and organizational development. A previous version of the book (written in Catalan) was awarded the 1998 Joan Sardà Dexeus prize for best book on corporate economics by the Catalan Association of Economists.

Business Ethics provides a thorough review and analysis of business ethics issues using several learning tools: Strategic Stakeholder Management as the Theme: All chapters use a strategic stakeholder approach as a unifying theme.

Theory-based and Application-based: All chapters have important applicable theories integrated with discussion of how such theories apply in practice. Unlike other texts that are either too theoretical or too practical, this text provides the appropriate blend of theory and practice to provide deeper insights into the concepts covered in the chapter. Global Perspective: Unless most other texts, this text provides a global perspective on business ethics. Most chapters include material pertaining to ethics in global contexts. Included are cases about companies in a wide range of countries including Japan, U.K., China and India among many others. Cases: The text contains over 30 real world global cases. Each chapter ends with a short two page case as well as a longer case that varies in length. Each has discussions questions at the end.

Responsible Management

Author: Kemi Ogunyemi
Publisher: Business Expert Press
ISBN: 9781606495056
Release Date: 2013-01-15
Genre: Business & Economics

Does a manager in today’s world need to know anything about freedom? Or about instrinsic goods? Or even about educating emotions? “Absolutely,” says author Kemi Ogunyemi. Kemi wrote this book to serve as a valuable tool to complement courses on ethics, responsibility, leadership, human behavior in organizations, customer service, and sustainability—most of which tend to ignore their human nature dimensions. Inside, you’ll be provided an indepth understanding of human nature and its uniqueness and complexity, which can greatly enhance your managerial skills for achieving business success in today’s world. You will be empowered to better manage yourself, others, and the environment. This book also provides a foundation for developing ethical sensitivity and corporate social responsibility. There is a clear and present danger that managers may tend to focus primarily on financial success in different key dimensions—operational quality, financial strategy, workforce motivation, cost-cutting strategies, etc.—and perhaps discover too late the neglect of an even more vital dimension of all human endeavor. Future leaders and shapers of sustainable organizations and societies cannot afford to have such a knowledge gap.
