I’ve been reading a recently published book called “Reputation Rules” by US academic and consultant Daniel Diermeier.
You can see what it covers here.
I’ve found it a well-written, readable and compelling book. Refreshingly clearly written, unlike many books in the broad corporate responsibility space.
Some of the case studies I know well, others I’m much less familiar with. Toyota, BP, Shell, General Electric, J&J are all covered. There’s some good, simple checklist style advice.
Importantly, it’s jargon free, which means other executives in your company will be able to understand it.
It’s well worth $18, despite the very US-centric focus.
I can see myself dipping back into the book for years to come.
Some further, practical-looking resources that might be useful are here.
