One of the most intriguing aspects of modern business is that corporations have become social actors, similar in many respects to human actors. In an era when corporate scandals and misconduct often raise questions about the moral character and integrity of organizations, leaders are increasingly finding that value creation by the business and the values, norms and rules of the societies in which they operate are intertwined–albeit in complex and often perilous ways. In On the Moral Side of Enterprise, Timo Fiorito explores the complexities, perils and promises of organizational character and integrity. Timo’s rich account shows that although some financial enterprises are able to successfully adapt to and, in some cases, even realize profound positive change following moral failures, corporations that have fallen prey to dysfunctional processes tend to repeatedly violate their institutional responsibilities. This scholarly work provides important contributions to organizational theory and offers insights for anyone looking to build a stronger organizational character and preserve the integrity of the broader system in which corporations are embedded.
