Organizing for sustainable development, addressing the grand challenges, Federica Angeli, Ashley Metz, Jörg Raab

Summary
"The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) recognize the increasingly complex, interdependent nature of societal and environmental issues for governments and business. Tackling such "grand challenges" requires the concerted action of multiple stakeholders at different levels, including the private sector and multinational corporations. Organizing for Sustainable Development provides the first holistic and comparative overview of the successes and failures of organisational efforts to tackle global societal issues and achieve sustainable development. Summarising years of study by an interdisciplinary board of authors and contributors, the work provides readers with an in-depth understanding of how existing businesses and new hybrid organizations can achieve sustainable development to bring about an improved society, marking a key contribution to the literature in this field. Combining theoretical views with empirical approaches, the chapters in this work are highly relevant to graduate and undergraduate (multidisciplinary) programs in sustainable development, development economics, development studies, international management, and social entrepreneurship. Federica Angeli is a Chair in Management at the York Management School, University of York, UK. She has held positions at Tilburg University and Maastricht University, The Netherlands, and was Visiting Scholar at the Indian Institute of Management, Bangalore, India. Ashley Metz is an Assistant Professor of Organization Studies at Tilburg University, The Netherlands, and serves as a Research Fellow at Human Futures Institute, a think tank focused on applied insight and foresight practices. Jörg Raab is an Associate Professor of Policy and Organization Studies at the Department of Organization Studies and Academic Director of the International Bachelor Global Management of Social Issues at Tilburg University, The Netherlands"--, Provided by publisher
