5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Joop Remmé on February 1, 2011
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Strategic Management by Freeman is a classic. It should be required reading for every manager and MBA student. When Freeman wrote the book, stakeholder thinking was still rather new and unusual - at least in its explicit form -, while it is now, thanks in large part to Freeman, widely accepted.
The book is, like many management books, relevant both to academic research and to day-to-day business. But, unlike many management books, this publications can actually be read both by academics and by managers, which may explain in part its impact.
Thje book makes clear that strategy, especially in the stakeholder-form, requires a proper understanding of both ethics and systems thinking. It should at least make the reader think about both.

Business has after a long time caught on to the theories proposed by Prof. Freeman. His stakeholder theory is a cornerstone in recent standards such as Global Reporting Initiative and Integrated Reporting. The book is quite theoretical and some of the examples show that it was written a long time ago, but it is a must read for those interested in going back to the sources of today's Corporate Social Responsibility ideas.

Relatively short read that covers all of the topics related to understanding the stakeholder approach. The examples/cases are very good but you have to have been around a while to even remember some of the names. If you look at them for the structure of the problem and the solution you should be fine.
