Description of this Book

Facebook, Oxfam, Volkswagen, FIFA, Wells Fargo, Lehman Bros., ABN-AMRO, South-west Airlines, Shell, Rabobank, Deutsche Bank, Panama Papers... Why do good companies go bad? Why do corporate scandals happen so often? Is corruption and misconduct in business inevitable? And, on a more pragmatic level, what can business leaders do about it? What can they do to save their companies when scandal strikes, or what can they do to avoid scandal in the first place? Jos Hernandez has put decades of experience into Broken Business, to show that the popularperception that 'just a few bad apples' are usually the problem, isn't true. He clearly defines the problem and shares seven steps to both address a corporate scandal and to install the structures and culture to support integrity and good conduct. Because misconduct is inevitable, but scandal is not.
