My Book Chapter finally published!

The book is titled: Incorporating Sustainability in Management Education.

It addresses the need to incorporate sustainability thinking into business and executive education, from a global and multidisciplinary perspective. It is edited by

Prof Kenneth Amaeshi (Edinburgh), Assoc. Prof Judy, Muthuri (Nottingham, and Prof. Chris Ogbechie (Lagos).

Chapter 10, entitled “Three Faculty, Two Business Schools, One Goal!” sets out how David Grayson, Saulius Buivys and I collaborated over a decade with the single goal of improving the effectiveness and impact of the teaching of Corporate Responsibility & Sustainability amongst graduate management students.

We set out the development of three tools, 7 Steps, Jigsaw Target and Stages of Maturity (SOMAT) and explain the evolution in their use as an integrating model.

We describe how we used these models to teach Business Responsibility and Sustainability in the Cranfield School of Management (UK) international MBA and the Masters students in The Rotterdam Business School (Netherlands).

The Graduate students of the RBS used the tools to analyse over 120 businesses, large and small, across over 20 countries. Management of these provided positive feedback to the results and the students’ recommendations.

We offer the integrating model as a potential tool to aid the teaching of Business Responsibility and Sustainability in other business schools both with pre- and post-work experience Masters students and to form the basis of future research on embedding the principles of responsible business.
