Editorial Reviews

Review

The rancorous public debate over business ethics and corporate reform has lacked a few crucial ingredients: A genuine love for business and human enterprise, the confidence that the American corporation is 'worth saving,' a sense that it is fully worthy of our loftiest ideals and most focused energies. Gratefully, this is precisely what Peter Drucker, Max De Pree, James Baker, Michael Novak and their distinguished colleagues offer us in The Heart of A Business Ethic. (Warren Bennis, Distinguished Professor of Business Administration, University of Southern California From The Foreword)

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
In my 50+ years of labor with major companies I have seen the culture of our nation change many times as we moved from a farm economy to a manufacturing economy and on to the service economy and now the information or technology economy. We have become more knowledgeable about many things but not always wiser. Over the years of managing in school districts ,manufacturing plants, religious colleges, and Church services physical plants I have agree with the principles outlined in this book.
I worked for ServiceMaster for 13 years and with out a drought it was the best place I ever worked. C. William Pollard the person who wrote the forward to this book was the CEO at the time and he speaks from experience . Knowing from his own experience that a business that large ,with diversity in the religious ,political ,and educational and language how difficult it is to grow a business if the spiritual accountability is taken out of the equation and how difficulty it is to keep it alive in a pluralist culture. With out the spiritual accountability in an organization from top to bottom the business will slowly fail from moral corruption. The book has a excellent blueprint for preserving a company,a nation or even religious groups.
