Economics

Towards a New Theory of the Firm

Print Share
This book was born out of the basic idea that firms have proved to be a very important organizational form to transform society. Firms help solve real problems by creating economic value, by creating social value, and by introducing change. Management and managers have a tremendous influence on the wellbeing of many people. But are our theories about management and managers faulty, and perhaps even the reason for the errors that lead to the current crisis? IESE, as a business school committed to the development of leaders who aspire to have a positive, deep and lasting impact on people, had a concern for the trend to dehumanize management and the management profession, but also for according recognition to its importance and achievements. Out of this commitment and with some sense of urgency, in 2011 it launched an international conference on ?Humanizing the Firm and the Management Profession?, in an attempt to help reverse this trend by rethinking our theories of the firm. This book contains the papers presented at that conference.
