The Ivey Casebook Series
Business Ethics | Corporate Social Responsibility | Leadership
What does a truly global manager need to know to lead responsibly?
How does he or she define and develop the core management competencies required to accomplish this?
This book uses the UN Global Compact and its ten principles as an overarching framework for understanding the complex issues facing global business managers today. Contributors from different parts of the world discuss the intersection between business and the ethical issues of our time—human rights, labor, the environment, and anti-corruption—and, most critically, how readers can address these issues in the day-to-day running of their multinational operations.
A modern Approach for Understanding global Leadership
An excellent book with good contextual and theoretical background on the UN Global Compact and a selection of cases that highlight the ten principles of the Compact.
It transcends the conventional boundaries of leadership research and practice by making a bold stance on global challenges.
This is strongly recommended to MBA students who face an highly uncertain and challenging environment with little sense of direction and mission.
It could be used not only for leadership classes but also business & society or CSR classes.
In today's world business leaders need to have a global perspective and this book helps them to look at responsible leadership in the wider context
Case studies are excellent and I will be drawing the main text to the attention of students - it highlights issues all international business managers should be aware of.
Useful tangential thought for our global leadership series.
