ValuesManagementSystemZfW: A New Standard for Values Driven Management

  • Josef Wieland
Chapter
Part of the Ethical Economy book series (SEEP)

Abstract

In this essay I would like to develop some aspects of the theoretical foun­dations of a values driven standard for good business behaviour. In the final analysis I will try to give an answer to the question: Why do we need ethical standards at all? I will end with unfolding the principles and constituents of the ValuesManagementSystemZfw (VMSZfw) which is a standard for sustain-ability in corporate management.
