This book explores CSR as a management idea, that is, as a tool for organizational reform. It shows that CSR has much in common with other popular management ideas such as lean production, total-quality-management, just-in-time, business-process-reengineering and six sigma, but there are also significant differences. The book demonstrates how CSR standards are set and spread in the business community, but also what happens when CSR reaches management, is implemented and used in daily operations. The results represent not only a significant contribution to the literature on CSR, by generalizing the concept and its operationalization. It also contributes to organizational literature by highlighting important differences between popular management ideas and how they affect organizations.
