Traditionally, books on business ethics focus on CSR, companies’ relations with their stakeholders, and corporate citizenship. More recently, green credentials and sustainability have been added to that agenda. Unconventionally, this book argues that business ethics are basic to running business, not a separate subject. They are inherent to the governance and management of every organization, not an optional exercise in corporate citizenship. Business ethics concern behaviour in business and the behaviour of business. Decisions at every level in a company have ethical implications – strategically in the board room, managerially throughout the organization, and operationally in all of its activities. The use, and sometimes the abuse, of corporate power, the process of corporate governance, raises ethical issues. Business involves risk-taking, whether decisions are at the strategic, managerial, or operational level. Exposure to ethical risk needs to be part of every organization’s strategy formulation, policy making, and enterprise risk management. Designed to be read by both undergraduates and postgraduates, this book is a primer on ethics in business. It is also relevant to ethics courses that are now part of many legal, accountancy and other professional examinations. The book is not about moral philosophy, nor does it prescribe appropriate standards of behaviour or recommend economic, legal or political solutions. Rather it enables readers to recognize ethical issues in business, to respond appropriately, and to embed ethics in business processes. The book not only considers what business ethics are, and why they are important, but offers practical approaches on how to develop a successful corporate ethics culture.

The forces generated by an explosion in human knowledge and exponential increases in technology have brought about tectonic shifts in personal as well as corporate worldviews. And while globalisation has ushered in many benefits for companies and consumers alike, this book posits that it is the fierce competition of global market-places which drives the largely unopposed belief that firms exist solely to enhance shareholder value. The author in arguing for a wider definition of 'shareholder' is of the opinion that this is a potentially lethal fallout, because single-minded pursuit of profit for profits' sake, in yielding to the tyranny of the bottomline, has undermined traditional and long-enduring value systems, and placed ethics on the sacrificial altar of vested interests, as scams such as Enron, WorldCom and Computer Associates have amply demonstrated.To bolster his arguments, the author compels the reader to think, assess and analyse for himself as he whisks him through a whirlwind tour of western ethical and value systems beginning from the halcyon days of Plato and Aristotle, right down to modern times, running the gamut of Newton, Hobbes, Descartes, JS Mill followed by the Utilitarians, Kant, Hegel and even the Jack Welch model. He then guides the reader the labyrinth of eastern thought, including Vedic and Taoist disciplines, before citing three pragmatic Indian models with firm philosophical underpinnings, one of which he zeroes in as having the greatest potential for good governance. Written in a very lucid style, this book is sure to remain fresh in the reader's memory as long as questions of right and wrong confront him in his daily life. No book on the subject can hope to do more.

Seine Firma Bridgewater Associates ist der größte Hedgefonds der Welt, er selbst gehört zu den Top 50 der reichsten Menschen auf dem Planeten: Ray Dalio. Seit 40 Jahren führt er sein Unternehmen so erfolgreich, dass ihn Generationen von Nachwuchsbankern wie einen Halbgott verehren. Mit "Die Prinzipien des Erfolgs" erlaubt er erstmals einen Blick in seine sonst so hermetisch abgeriegelte Welt. Seine Beobachtungen aus dem Geschäftsleben hielt Ray Dalio schon als junger Unternehmer in einem Notizbuch fest. Das war die Geburtsstunde seiner gut 200 "Prinzipien", die mit diesem Buch erstmals gebündelt vorliegen und kaum weniger als die Essenz des geradezu unheimlichen Erfolgs von Ray Dalio und seiner Firma darstellen. Kern dieser Prinzipien ist eine stetige Verbesserung durch radikale Transparenz und Wahrhaftigkeit, eine Art "Ideen-Meritokratie ", also eine Atmosphäre, in der sich die besten Ideen durchsetzen. Die einzigartigen Prinzipien, mithilfe derer jeder den Weg des Erfolgs einschlagen kann, und die mitunter harten Lektionen, die ihn sein einzigartiges System errichten ließen, hat Ray Dalio auf eine bisher noch nie dagewesene, unkonventionelle Weise zusammengetragen.

Mit seiner Unternehmensführung ist Toyota seit langem Vorbild für Firmen aus den unterschiedlichsten Branchen. Fast alle Automobilhersteller versuchten mehr oder weniger erfolgreich das legendäre Toyota-Produktionssystem (TPS) zu kopieren, das zum Ziel hat, die Kundenzufriedenheit in den drei Bereichen Qualität, Lieferzeit und Kosten zu erhöhen. Aufgrund des verschärften Wettbewerbs in der Automobilbranche drängt sich jetzt die Frage nach den Faktoren des Erfolgs immer mehr in den Mittelpunkt. Jeffrey K. Liker befasst sich in seinem Buch „Der Toyota Weg“ ausführlich mit dem warum und wieso. Aus zahlreichen Interviews und eigenen Anschauungen filtert der Autor die 14 Managementprinzipien heraus, die den Kern des Toyota-Erfolgs ausmachen. Diese Prinzipien untermauert er eindrucksvoll mit einer Fülle von Details, Anekdoten und Interview-Auszügen. Leicht verständlich erklärt er dem Leser die Managementsysteme, die Denkweise und die Philosophie, auf denen der Erfolg von Toyota basiert. So vermittelt er wertvolle Erkenntnisse, die sich auf jeden beliebigen Geschäftszweig bzw. jede Geschäftssituation übertragen lassen.

'Djelic and Vranceanu have put together a valuable collection of studies on the normative justifications underlying modern managerialism, as well as on its roots in economic and organizational theories. Students of the rise of business schools, and business education in particular, will find the book's analyses of current normative frames most useful. But so will those interested in the prospects for future changes in management doctrines.' - John W. Meyer, Stanford University, US

Wie findet man das wahre Glück? Wie lässt sich Erfolg wirklich bemessen? Und wie geht man mit den Herausforderungen des Alltags wie Wut, Trauer und der Frage nach dem Sinn des Ganzen um? Was große Geister wie George Washington, Friedrich der Große, Weltklassesportler oder Top-Performer längst für sich entdeckt haben, liegt mit "Der tägliche Stoiker" erstmals gesammelt vor. New York Times-Bestsellerautor Ryan Holiday und Stephen Hanselman haben das Wissen der Stoiker in 366 zeitlose Lektionen verpackt und zeigen, dass die Philosophie des Stoizismus nicht nur zeitlos, sondern gerade für unsere hektische und unsichere Zeit ein Segen ist. Weisheit, Mut, Gerechtigkeitssinn und Selbstbeherrschung sowie Gelassenheit lassen sich erlernen und helfen uns, in der zunehmenden Komplexität unserer Welt zu bestehen. Die uralten Weisheiten der Stoiker, gesammelt und kommentiert, unterstützen bei diesen alltäglichen Herausforderungen.
