The Global Corporation: Sustainable, Effective and Ethical Practices: A Case Book
Edited by Laura Hartman and Patricia Werhane
This text brings together case studies focusing on specific instances of best corporate practices, instead of showcasing examples of questionable or unethical corporate behavior. There is no claim that the companies featured are perfect; however, they work to foster trust internally and in their relationships with customers, suppliers, shareholders and the communities in which they operate. The editors conclude with an analysis of ethical decision-making frameworks that help to establish models for best practices and can be replicated by other companies in their search for excellence and the resulting avoidance of misconduct.
Alleviating Poverty through Profitable Partnerships: Globalization, Markets and Economic Well-Being
Patricia Werhane, Scott Kelley, Laura P. Hartman and Dennis Moberg
In this book, the authors approach poverty alleviation from an atypical perspective. The evidence they present demonstrates that a mindset embracing initiatives developed by global corporations in response to the poverty challenge is significantly more effective that traditional approaches to the alleviation of poverty. Developing partnerships with today's global corporations is an enormous first step towards eradicating poverty.
Business Ethics: A Managerial Approach
Andrew Wicks, R. Edward Freeman, Patricia Werhane, Kirsten Martin
The criteria distinguishing this text from other business ethics books are that it operates from a managerial point of view, it provides content in addition to cases, and it approaches the topic from the realm of business. This book is not written for philosophers who want to grapple with abstract ideas for their own intellectual curiosity, but rather it is for future managers who will face tough practical decisions and need the tools to make such decisions.
Cutting-Edge Issues in Business Ethics
Edited by Mollie Painter-Morland and Patricia Werhane
This text provides a critique of many assumptions that underpin traditional business ethics studies, specifically focusing on Continental philosophy and its application to professional ethics. The authors want to draw attention to the work of Continental philosophers--often found on the fringes of business ethics scholarship--and present some critical perspectives that have been largely ignored in this field. This book urges a re-evaluation of moral epistemology and business ethics pedagogy.
