Bob Tricker - Oxford Circus

Oxford Circus

NEW – 2015, Bob Tricker

Bob Tricker was closely involved with the development of management studies at Oxford University. Reflecting on the saga of nearly fifty years of management study in Oxford, he concludes that attempts to study business and management in the University had many of the hallmarks of a circus: businessmen giving acrobatic performances on the tightrope of university politics, academics flying the trapeze of anti-business sentiment, heads of college and business leaders competing to snap the ring-master’s whip, there were even a few clowns.

In this personal perspective, Bob Tricker describes how the study of management developed in the University and how, from time to time, he found himself in the ring.

Bob Tricker - Business Ethics

Business Ethics – a stakeholder, risk, and governance approach

2014, Bob Tricker and Gretchen Tricker (Routledge)

This book argues that business ethics are basic to running business not a separate subject. They are inherent to the governance and management of every organization not an optional exercise in corporate citizenship. Ethics are about behaviour.

The book not only considers what business ethics are, and why they are important, but offers practical approaches on how to develop a successful corporate ethics culture.
