About this book

Avoiding Corporate Breakdowns focuses on prescribing a preventative strategy for managerial actors who face economic, social and environmental disasters. Prevention is basically simple, but it will require a considerable broadening in both the nature and the extent of managerial responsibility.

About the authors

LaRue Hosmer is an Emeritus Professor who taught a mixture of courses on Corporate Strategy, Entrepreneurial Ventures and Business Ethics at the University of Michigan, USA. He found, during his career, that these were not three different topics. Instead, they were three different ways of addressing the same issue of successful organizational leadership using separate theoretical approaches.

Patrick Barry has a J.D. from the University of Chicago and now teaches at the University of Michigan, where he also advises the Human Trafficking Clinic, the first law school clinic in the country to provide comprehensive representation to victims of human trafficking.

Reviews

"This is a great book that, in a remarkably succinct way, synthesizes both state-of-the-art academic thinking about corporate responsibility with practical applicability for busy managers. Any reader who picks up this book and reads it will be much the better off for doing so and those with whom that person works will be better off as well." - Timothy L. Fort, Executive Director, Institute for Corporate Responsibility, George Washington University, USA

"Avoiding Corporate Breakdowns explains why individual managerial integrity is not enough to prevent corporate scandals and catastrophic organizational failures - managers must also carefully attend to organizational systems and cultures. A great read for any manager interested in creating organizations that make a positive difference in the world." - Alison Davis-Blake, Edward J. Frey Dean, Stephen M. Ross School of Business, University of Michigan, USA
