Product description


"It is difficult to imagine a more thorough and vivid qualitative description of ethical issues and their moral consequences than Jennings' Seven Signs of Ethical Collapse... Recommended to all leaders wondering about how to strengthen the ethical fiber of their organizations." - Journal of Applied Christian Leadership, St. Andrews University

"Both a must-have tool and a fascinating window into today's business world." - Chief of Naval Operations Professional Reading Program

From the Back Cover

How do formerly ethical people---and organizations---descend into moral meltdowns? And how do we recognize the signs?

Marianne Jennings, professor of business ethics at Arizona State University, predicted the collapse at Enron and the fall of the dot-coms. Now she explains the origins of moral meltdowns---and how we can spot the next one before it happens.

"People have an obligation to dissent in this company.... If you don't speak up, that's not good."
---Jeffrey Skilling, former CEO of Enron, who withheld business from companies whose analysts did not give Enron a "strong buy"

"So as a CEO, I want a strong, competent board."
---Dennis Kozlowski, former CEO of Tyco, circa 2001

"You know, if we hadn't had all those expenses, we would have had earnings."
---Attributed to a dot-com CEO, circa 1999
