The 5th Annual Humanistic Management Conference 

A World Ethos for Global Business?
Cosmopolitan Responsibilities of Management

05 - 06 October 2017
Weltethos-Institut, University of Tuebingen

We have a world economy but no world government; nor can we expect, at least in the foreseeable future, a system of decentralized global governance with sufficient sanctioning powers to enforce legal mandates for business worldwide. For this reason alone, the ethical dimension of business cannot be entrusted solely to the law. Globalized markets would seem to require an underlying ‘ethos’, present to some degree the world over: a common spirit of legitimate, just, and fair business practice substantiated by shared experience. As managers and economic decision-makers, however, are increasingly operating within multi-cultural settings with divergent social customs and conventions, no ‘one size fits all’ approach will do. While on the one hand the growing need for transnational cooperation accentuates the call for a shared ‘world ethos’ for the global business community, on the other hand any proposal in that direction must make room for the need for the diversity and divergence of culture and civilization. At the fifth annual Humanistic Management Conference, to be held at the University of Tuebingen’s Weltethos-Institut, we aim to address this dual need by investigating from various cultural perspectives: 1) how a world ethos for global business  could be variously articulated and promoted (‘theory’); 2)  the extent to which such an ethos is already present in contemporary globalized business (‘practice’); and 3) what civil society around the world can do to support the efforts of  (esp. multinational) corporations in this direction (‚policy’).

This project will publish the second volume of a case collection in the Humanism in Business Book Series demonstrating how humanistic management is put into practice.

In 2011 Humanistic Management in Practice, the first book of the Humanism in Business Book Series came out at Springer (Palgrave Macmillan), with whom the Humanistic Management Network has brought to market 14 books in the series to date. The first volume of Humanistic Management in Practice presented 19 case examples of businesses from around the globe that are anchored in principles we uphold in Humanistic Management. The volume served as an important 'proof of concept' by demonstrating the feasibility of business models and management styles that embrace a humanistic and reject a mechanistic view of the firm. In its introduction the book had also introduced unconditional respect for human dignity as the foundation for how we define Humanistic Management.

Five years on it is high time to publish a second volume with a new set of case examples of humanistic business leadership at its finest.

Many leaders today have participated in executive education programs to gain new insights, train skills and build networks in order to progress in their careers or develop new opportunities for doing so. But do executive education providers really deliver on their promise of shaping tomorrow's leaders?

Executive education provides one of the rare opportunities for creating a space in which leaders can reflect on their role and ask how they can contribute to a more equitable and more sustainable planet; how they can deliver on the dual objective of creating business success and value for society. Without actively integrating this dimension in leadership development offers, executive education providers are facing the question of how they themselves assume responsibility.
