review Changing Your Company from the Inside Out

MAKE YOUR COMPANY A FORCE FOR GOODYou’re ambitious You’re not afraid to take risks You want to bring about positive social change And while your peers have left a trail of failed start ups in their wake you want to initiate change from within an established company where you can have a far reaching even global impactWelcome to the club you’re a social intrapreneurBut even with your enviable skill set your unwavering social conscience and your determination to change the world your path to success is filled with challenges So how do you get started and maintain your mom This book is something of a how to guide for corporate reformers It draws inspiration heavily from the study of social movements which is a natural enough foundation Corporate reform has become an increasingly important component of a wide range of social movements in the past few decades so it stands to reason that the strategies employed by broader social movements should be useful to in house reformers To that end the authors draw heavily from social reformers the idea is to identify the right opportunity for reform the right individuals to target in making one s case the business rationale for reform and the right platforms for organizing around reform It s a reasonably good guide and the when section shines most brightly since it nicely highlights the role that major new initiatives product lines and reorganizations play in possibly unrelated reformsWhat s interesting to me is that the book spends comparatively little energy discussing corporate reform that s not tied explicitly to larger social and environmental causes Most of the book is devoted to the problem of adopting green policies or human rights protections or the like and it s easy enough to see how these kinds of reforms within corporate life can be informed by parallel reforms in political life outside the workplace What s far less obvious is the following uestion what lessons can social movements teach to those who seek reforms whether small scale or grand in corporate organization and governance There are a few mentions here and there such as corporate coups and CEO ousters but they re really at the margins of the book and they re also the most extreme examples of corporate governance reform I think the book might have benefited uite a bit from a deeper exploration of corporate governance reform and a look at the lessons that social reformers may lend to corporate reformersThis book is a reasonably good high level overview of the ins and outs of corporate reform and is certainly a good starting point for those looking to make change
