About this book


This book presents a new approach to corporate responsibility based on the concept of coherency, permitting better understanding and management of the conflicting forces that strive to create value across the stakeholder spectrum. In doing so, it provides an alternative to the limited and ineffective role currently played by Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), and offers an approach more in line with the needs of a sustainable society. Hilliard introduces several new concepts in management philosophy and presents an innovative and original framework for managing organizational responsibilities in a coherent manner.
