About This Book

There is now widespread understanding that business and management must evolve and act responsibly in the world giving full consideration to people and planet, not just profit. Principles of Management: Practicing Ethics, Sustainability, Responsibility was the first official textbook of the United Nations global initiative network, Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME). Now fully revised and updated with three brand new chapters on communicating, innovating and leading, this accessible and engaging textbook provides an introduction to management while empowering you to think ethically and sustainably in order to become a responsible manager. It also includes essential workplace skills for the 21st century and coverage of the various management occupations that you will go on to fill after your studies. Exclusive interviews with management pioneers and professionals help bring theories and concepts to life throughout the text as do the all new case studies which include Lego, Patagonia and Greta Thunberg. Worksheets and exercises make for an active learning experience alongside the supporting online resources provided to your lecturer for dissemination. The textbook includes coverage of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which are central to business education and practice today. It can be used for introductory management courses as well as courses that cover business ethics, business and society, corporate social responsibility (CSR), sustainability and responsible management.
