This third edition offers increased coverage of sustainability and more chances for illustration and discussion of ethics in the messy day to day practicalities of modern business through:

  • two new longer case studies in the final chapter that integrate ideas and issues from the whole book and provide an opportunity to explore how different perspectives and multiple problems interconnect in real life situations.
  • new Video Clips of interviews with Managers from companies around the world who discuss issues of ethical bearing in their business.
  • new Podcasts that discuss how issues in the news can be viewed from an ethical standpoint.
