How Might We Help Global Corporations Integrate Purpose, Participation and Profits?

Here’s a BIG question I am asking myself these days: how might we help global corporations integrate purpose, participation and profits?

It’s a BIG question and I need to turn to a wide range of idea to help me think about an approach to answer it. Here’s a list of books I am starting with. Some are at the intersection of purpose and participation, others at the intersection of purpose and profits, still others at the intersection of participation and profits. I don’t think any book directly addresses how to integrate all three.

Rosabeth Moss Kanter: Supercorp

Umair Haque: The New Capitalist Manifesto

Raj Sisodia, David Wofle, Jagdish Sheth: Firms of Endearment

Mathew Bishop, Michael Green: Philanthrocapitalism

C K Prahalad: The Fortune at the Bottom of the Pyramid

Muhammad Yunus: Building Social Business

Stephen Goldsmith, Gigi Georges, Tim Glynn Burke: The Power of Social Innovation

Jason Saul: Social Innovation, Inc
