Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

There's no shortage of books on how to run small businesses, but few of them cover the special value — and special challenges — of socially responsible business practices for small- or medium-size companies. Values-Driven Business addresses that gap. The first entry of the new "Social Venture Network" series, this guide uses real-world examples to show how "triple bottom line" practices — profits, people, and planet — have helped companies throughout North America thrive. The book contains first steps that owners or managers can use to start narrowing the gap between personal values and business practices. It also illustrates the many dimensions of value-driven business, addressing the varied roles of customers, employees, the community, the environment, shareholders, and owners. Included is a self-assessment tool that lets readers determine how successful their company will be in implementing values-driven practices.

Review:

"[F]ull of examples of companies that thrive by fixing their sights well above the bottom line." Library Journal

Review:

"In Values-Driven Business, the authors show how any company, no matter how small, can do well by doing good." Russ Feingold, U.S. Senator

Review:

"Invaluable reading for those starting or running a small- to mid-sized business — and for entrepreneurial students in business schools." Prof. Kellie A. McElhaney, Haas School of Business, UC Berkeley
