Badaracco builds a framework for approaching these dilemmas around three cases of increasing complexity, reflecting the escalating responsibilities managers face as they advance in their careers. The first story presents a young man whose choice will affect him only as an individual; the second, a department head, whose decision will influence his organization; the third, a corporate executive, whose actions will have much larger, societal ramifications.


To guide the decision-making process, Badaracco draws on the insights of four philosophers–Aristotle, Machiavelli, Nietzsche, and James–because they offer practical rather than theoretical advice. He thus bridges the gap between classroom philosophy and corporate pragmatism.

The result is a flexible framework that managers can draw on to resolve issues of conflicting responsibility in practical ways. User Review – Flag as inappropriate I need to read chapter 6 through 9. User Review – Flag as inappropriate http: Selected pages Title Page.
