    The Question of Organizational Consciousness: Can Organizations Have Values, Virtues and Visions?Peter Pruzan - 2001 - Journal of Business Ethics 29 (3):271-284.
    It is common for organizational theorists as well as business practitioners to speak of an organization's visions, strategies, goals and responsibilities. This implies that collectivities have competencies normally attributed to individuals, i.e. to reflect, evaluate, learn and make considered choices. The article provides a series of reflections on the concept of consciousness in an organizational context. It is argued that, under certain conditions, it is both meaningful and efficacious to ascribe the competency for conscious and intentional behavior to organizations. The (...)

    From control to values-based management and accountability.Peter Pruzan - 1998 - Journal of Business Ethics 17 (13):1379-1394.
    In recent years a series of developments in apparently loosely coupled domains have contributed to the development of new and vital perspectives on how to manage complex social systems such as corporations. These developments include improved communications technologies, increased awareness by constituencies of their potentials for influencing corporate behaviour, increased complexity and reduced transparency in large, heterogeneous organisations, a corresponding reduction in the capacity of traditional accounting and reporting systems to reflect organisational performance, new demands from employees as to their (...)

    Spiritual-based Leadership in Business.Peter Pruzan - 2008 - Journal of Human Values 14 (2):101-114.
    A new global leadership paradigm is gradually emerging, spiritual-based leadership. The article context-ualizes this development within a framework of scientific and economic rationality. In contrast to these, a spiritual approach to leadership is presented as integrating a leader's inner perspective on the purpose of life and leadership such that this inner perspective is the foundation for decisions and actions in the outer world of business. Empirical research is presented, based on interviews with 31 top leaders from 15 countries in six (...)

    Socially Responsible and Accountable Enterprise.Peter Pruzan & Simon Zadek - 1997 - Journal of Human Values 3 (1):59-76.
    The paper challenges the purely economic and financial bottom line perspective of business enterprise. Five fundamental questions are raised to address the issue of socially responsible business. Social posturing is not social responsibility, nor is legal compliance true ethics. This is cynical instrumental- ism. Nor, of course, naive idealism has much merit in it. Genuine social responsibility is correlated with rising expectations of transparency from business enterprises. While benchmarking has the advantages of simplicity and cheapness in evaluating social responsibility, the (...)
