Editorial Reviews

Review

"Ed Freeman is one of those great teachers who change the world by changing the way people think, and even how they think about thinking. He melds intellectual rigor with practical wisdom and inspired standards—an exemplar of the very best of what a modern professor should be."—Jim Collins, Batten Fellow at the University of Virginia, author of Good to Great and co-author of Built to Last
 
 
(Jim Collins)

“This book breaks the mold for the ‘management success’ literature. Forget what you’ve read in previous management books. Stop assuming that you have to trade off the interests of employees and customers for those of stockholders. Freeman, Harrison and Wicks show why smart managers succeed by adding value everywhere.”—Tom Donaldson, Mark O. Winkelman Professor, The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania
(Tom Donaldson)

"Given the discussions that currently engage the market as to a US shareholder orientation versus a continental stakeholder focus, Freeman et al put forth a simple framework for stakeholder management and give a good argument for how ethical leadership is needed for the more complex times approaching us."—Jeffrey J. Diermeier, President & Chief Executive Officer, CFA Institute
(Jeffrey J. Diermeier)

“Freeman’s book, and the launch of this series, is an invaluable resource for current and future business leaders. Placing the leading thinking of top academics into the hands of managers will greatly contribute to positively shaping future business practice and the creation of value.”—John J. Castellani, President of Business Roundtable
(John J. Castellani)

Format: Hardcover
Good business leaders know they can help their firms succeed by connecting to their communities and by improving their relationships with employees, suppliers and customers. Yet, many executives still make the grave mistake of focusing solely on their shareholders and bankers, ignoring other important stakeholders. R. Edward Freeman, Jeffrey S. Harrison and Andrew C. Wicks provide new thinking and techniques to help you best manage stakeholder relationships and boost your firm's success. They offer practical advice for balancing the needs of your financiers with those of other stakeholders. getAbstract recommends this book to all managers and business thinkers. Board members and other professionals who want to understand their new roles and responsibilities in the globalized world of commerce will also value the authors' take on business ethics.
