What Makes a Global Company Great? For the past few decades, more than 60 percent of Fortune 500 companies have either failed or been significantly downgraded in size, influence, or governance structures. In New World Companies, best-selling author and corporate consultant Bruce Piasecki examines this sobering reality and explains why certain twenty-first century companies are likely to thrive while others fall short. New World Companies begins with an overview of today's global business environment. Specifically, it examines the recently evolved areas of corporate concern: environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices. It then shows how this growing trend toward social responsiveness-involving areas such as preservation of the environment, the meeting of consumer and employee needs, and the transparency of company practices and philosophies-is proving to be an integral part of a successful operation. Subsequent chapters explore the role of digital technology in bringing the people of the world together in a new era of human rights; the evolution of shared values in business networks; the new flow of money management and successful investing; the importance of innovation and sustainability; and much more. Whether you are an investor, an executive, or a consumer, New World Companies provides you with the tools needed to measure a company's potential for growth and success-or its likelihood of failure.
