The book is ideal for undergraduate studies at higher education institutions, managers in the corporate and public environment, leaders, project managers (especially for Corporate Social Responsibility related projects) and anyone aspiring to be a responsible manager.
The Principles of General Management textbook is currently the first book written by South Africans for the South African and broader African market, integrating the pillars of responsible management in the main managerial functions.
This book covers the traditional view of management, encompassing the "PLOC": planning, organizing, leading and control functions. The three pillars of responsible management (sustainability, responsibility and ethics) are then integrated into each of these functions with the aim to develop responsible managers, organizations, socio-economic systems and ultimately a sustainable world society. A responsible manager will embrace triple-bottom-line optimization, stakeholder value optimization, ethical decision-making and create moral excellence in his or her organisation.
