Tested and proven strategy to develop optimal automated process fault analyzers Process fault analyzers monitor process operations in order to identify the underlying causes of operational problems. Several diagnostic strategies exist for automating process fault analysis; however, automated fault analysis is still not widely used within the processing industries due to problems of cost and performance as well as the difficulty of modeling process behavior at needed levels of detail. In response, this book presents the method of minimal evidence (MOME), a model-based diagnostic strategy that facilitates the development and implementation of optimal automated process fault analyzers. MOME was created at the University of Delaware by the researchers who developed the FALCON system, a real-time, online process fault analyzer. The authors demonstrate how MOME is used to diagnose single and multiple fault situations, determine the strategic placement of process sensors, and distribute fault analyzers within large processing systems. Optimal Automated Process Fault Analysis begins by exploring the need to automate process fault analysis. Next, the book examines: Logic of model-based reasoning as used in MOME MOME logic for performing single and multiple fault diagnoses Fuzzy logic algorithms for automating MOME Distributing process fault analyzers throughout large processing systems Virtual SPC analysis and its use in FALCONEER IV Process state transition logic and its use in FALCONEER IV The book concludes with a summary of the lessons learned by employing FALCONEER IV in actual process applications, including the benefits of «intelligent supervision» of process operations. With this book as their guide, readers have a powerful new tool for ensuring the safety and reliability of any chemical processing system.

The Normative Structure of Responsibility deals with responsibility in legal, moral, and linguistic contexts. The book builds on conceptual analysis and data from everyday language, ethics, and the law in order to defend the thesis that responsibility is fundamentally normative, that is, it cannot be reduced to purely descriptive factors.The book is divided in three parts: the first part draws a conceptual map of various responsibility concepts, conceptions and conditions and their interaction with different kinds of rules; the second part engages with arguments in favour of a descriptive understanding of responsibility based on ethics, neuroscience, and metaphysics and argues against it; the third part investigates the language of responsibility and its use in formal and informal contexts.

The Uemachi fault is a 40-kilometer long reverse fault that traverses north south through the middle of the Osaka City, one of the most highly populated regions in Japan. An integrated geophysical survey, using shallow high-resolution seismic reflection and ground penetrating radar (GPR) methods, was carried out across the Uemachi fault system to explore the subsurface geometrical layout of the fault and to investigate the possible activity and evolution of the fault system in order to mitigate future natural hazards. Seismic survey lines that had been acquired using different acquisition parameters and instrumentation were compiled into a single 9.2-kilometer long seismic section that shows the subsurface configuration of the Uemachi fault and the Suminoe flexure. A GPR survey was conducted across the Uemachi fault to investigate the shallow part of the subsurface and to confirm the presence of the shallow faults detected by seismic survey. Integrated information from seismic sections, GPR survey and drilling data in the study area are used to construct a simple structural model, which explains the subsurface geometry, activity, and evolution of the Uemachi fault.

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2015 in the subject Engineering - Automotive Engineering, , course: Engineering and Technology, language: English, abstract: In recent times, research on effective Acoustic Emission (AE)-based methods for condition monitoring and fault recognition has attracted many researchers. They recognize that the advanced methods of supervision, fault recognition become increasingly important for many technical processes, for the improvement of reliability, safety and efficiency. The use of acoustic signals for fault diagnosis in four-strokes Internal Combustion Engine has grown significantly due to advances in the progress of digital signal processing algorithms and implementation techniques. The classical approaches are limited to checking of some measurable output variables and does not provide a deeper insight and usually do not allow a fault diagnosis. Engine problems are caused primarily by improper maintenance or fatigue caused by normal wear and tear and also worn out or clogged vehicle parts. The main cause of overheating of the engine, engine surging and other problems is noticed as worn out parts. The faults in Internal Combustion (IC) engine, reduces the performance, fuel average, smoothness also a change in engine sound is observed. The faults in IC engines can be recognized and repaired based on engine sound and past experience. But as the engines are becoming more and more complex, getting expertise in fault recognition and loca...

In the context of systems and control, incomplete information refers to a dynamical system in which knowledge about the system states is limited due to the difficulties in modelling complexity in a quantitative way. The well-known types of incomplete information include parameter uncertainties and norm-bounded nonlinearities. Recently, in response to the development of network technologies, the phenomenon of randomly occurring incomplete information has become more and more prevalent. Filtering, Control and Fault Detection with Randomly Occurring Incomplete Information reflects the state-of-the-art of the research area for handling randomly occurring incomplete information from three interrelated aspects of control, filtering and fault detection. Recent advances in networked control systems and distributed filtering over sensor networks are covered, and application potential in mobile robotics is also considered. The reader will benefit from the introduction of new concepts, new models and new methodologies with practical significance in control engineering and signal processing. Key Features: Establishes a unified framework for filtering, control and fault detection problem for various discrete-time nonlinear stochastic systems with randomly occurring incomplete information Investigates several new concepts for randomly occurring phenomena and proposes a new system model to better describe network-induced problems Demonstrates how newly developed techniques can handle emerging mathematical and computational challenges Contains the latest research results Filtering, Control and Fault Detection with Randomly Occurring Incomplete Information provides a unified yet neat framework for control/filtering/fault-detection with randomly occurring incomplete information. It is a comprehensive textbook for graduate students and is also a useful practical research reference for engineers dealing with control, filtering and fault detection problems for networked systems.

Fault-tolerant control theory is a well-studied topic but the use of the sets in detection, isolation and/or reconfiguration is rather tangential. The authors of this book propose a systematic analysis of the set-theoretic elements and devise approaches which exploit advanced elements within the field. The main idea is to translate fault detection and isolation conditions into those conditions involving sets. Furthermore, these are to be computed efficiently using positive invariance and reachability notions. Constraints imposed by exact fault control are used to define feasible references (which impose persistent excitation and, thus, non-convex feasible sets). Particular attention is given to the reciprocal influences between fault detection and isolation on the one hand, and control reconfiguration on the other. Contents 1.

Praise for The Age of Responsibility «Wayne Visser's The Age of Responsibility elegantly and persuasively demonstrates the limits and failures of traditional CSR and also the kinds of reforms needed to create conditions for genuine corporate responsibility. Rich with insight, information and analyses, and highly readable for its excellent writing and poignant stories, the book is a crucial contribution to understanding where we are with CSR and what we need to do to move forward.» —Joel Bakan, author of The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power (book and documentary film) «Amongst the advocates of CSR as an innovative management approach, Wayne Visser is a well-known voice. This new book states more clearly than most why CSR should not be dismissed, but would benefit from some serious rethinking.» —Michael Blowfied, Senior Research Fellow at Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment, Oxford University and author of Corporate Responsibility «The Age of Responsibility by Wayne Visser is an important book that should be studied carefully by all those seriously interested in the past, present and future of CSR. For me, the most noteworthy contribution is his „ages and stages“ of CSR. Visser identifies five overlapping economic periods and classifies their stages of CSR, modus operandi, key enablers, and stakeholder targets. In forward-looking fashion, he crafts five insightful principles of CSR 2.0 and presents his DNA Model of CSR 2.0 which integrates knowledge and sets forth a more inclusive view of CSR. This book is a significant contribution to the theory and practice of CSR and it will be valued by academics and practitioners alike. I strongly recommend it.» —Archie B. Carroll, Professor of Management Emeritus, Terry College of Business and author of Business and Society «A challenging and thought provoking book. In an age when corporate responsibility is a must for most large businesses, Wayne Visser reminds us that global environmental and social pressures show little sign of receding. He asks: are we as practitioners complacent, or worse, part of the problem? There is hope and optimism but only if we are brave and bold enough to re-engineer corporate responsibility. Read on....» —Yogesh Chauhan, Chairman Corporate Responsibility Group and BBC Chief Adviser Corporate Responsibility «An authoritative tome on the CSR movement. It provides a comprehensive framework to understand the various stages of (and motivations for) CSR in organizations and the economy to date, and a clear vision of what a truly sustainable and responsible tomorrow entails. This is an eminently well-researched and well-structured book that flows coherently with deep insights and valuable vignettes.» —Willie Cheng, author of Doing Good Well: What does (and does not) make sense in the nonprofit world «The Age of Responsibility provides a much-needed wake up call for the corporate responsibility movement. This highly readable account of where CSR has gone wrong and where it needs to go next is essential reading for anyone interested in the role business can play in creating a just and sustainable society. This is the best CSR book you'll read all year.» —Andrew Crane, George R. Gardiner Professor of Business Ethics, Schulich School of Business, York University and author of Business Ethics "The Age of Responsibility breathes new life into CSR, both by redefining it as Corporate Sustainability and Responsibility and by highlighting why CSR has so far failed to make much difference in the way companies respond to pressing global challenges.

This work introduces an on-lineparticle-filtering-based framework for faultdiagnosis and failure prognosis in nonlinear,non-Gaussian systems. This framework considers hybridstate-space models of the system under analysis (withunknown time-varying parameters) andparticle-filtering (PF) algorithms to estimate thecurrent probability density function (pdf) of thestate, enabling on-line computation of theconditional fault probability (fault diagnosismodule) and the pdf of the remaining useful life(RUL) in the case of a declared fault condition(failure prognosis module). The proposed methodallows to use the state pdf estimate of the diagnosismodule as initial condition for the prognosis module,improving the accuracy of RUL estimates at the earlystages of the fault condition. This frameworkprovides information about precision and accuracy oflong-term predictions, RUL expectations, and 95%confidence intervals for the condition under study.Ground truth data from a seeded fault test are usedto validate the proposed approach.

Quality of the software is an important factor for any software company. Software fault prediction is a data mining process that helps to improve the quality. Data mining tools both open source and proprietary are available today. These bring lots of research works in this area. Software fault is the bug in the software that is identified only after its installation and it makes the software behave not in the expected way. Bug is there even after testing due to various constraints like cost, time. Prediction will help identify those fault prone areas and with that one can concentrate on those modules in future. Hybrid Feature Selection and Hybrid Classifier approach is a way to improve the software fault prediction accuracy. In Hybrid feature selection, irrelevant, redundant features are first filtered and this filtered feature set reduces the input feature set of wrapper. In Hybrid Classifier approach Linear Discriminant Analysis score is used as an additional feature for Neural Network classifier. These models give a better fault prediction accuracy.

One of the working area of real-time scheduling is distributed scheduling. Task scheduling in distributed systems is dealt with two levels: on the level of each processor (local scheduling), and on the level of the allocation of tasks to processors (global scheduling).In this thesis, a distributed real-time system with fault tolerance has been designed and called Fault Tolerance Distributed Real Time System FTDRTS. The system consists of heterogeneous processors act as servers and clients connected together via LAN communication network. This system has two types of scheduling schemes: (1) global model scheduling, (2) independent model scheduling for scheduling tasks in real time distributed manner. The time utility function TUF has been developed and called the DTUF (Developed TUF) function. This function gives another dimension and used to priorities' tasks, based on whether they are Urgent or Important, or both, or neither.A fault tolerance protocol called DRT-FTIP (Distributed Real Time - Fault Tolerance Integrity Protocol) has been developed. This protocol increases the integrity of the scheduling in distributed real time systems.The proposed Distributed Real-Time system with its scheduling algorithms and integrity ...

What does it mean to "educate for responsibility"? The author of this book will teach you about the new way of engaging young people with the challenge of changing their world for the better. Designed for application in any educational context dealing with ethics, responsibility, or human development, this book explains in detail how to facilitate anyone's ability to think and act in more fully responsible ways. In contrast to the predominant model of teaching, which is almost exclusively an intellectual education about responsibility, educating for responsibility integrates emotion, insight, observation, and action so anyone can learn the true dynamics of exercising this resilient capacity. Inside, educating for responsibility is explained and a template offered for a creative way of teaching that has proven to be extremely effective in practice. Written particularly for those offering courses or training in social responsibility, sustainability, or business ethics, it offers a new way of thinking about how we might better serve the interests of a generation of young people entering a rapidly changing, and by all accounts, rapidly destabilizing world.

This book covers the most essential techniques for designing and building dependable distributed systems. Instead of covering a broad range of research works for each dependability strategy, the book focuses only a selected few (usually the most seminal works, the most practical approaches, or the first publication of each approach) are included and explained in depth, usually with a comprehensive set of examples. The goal is to dissect each technique thoroughly so that readers who are not familiar with dependable distributed computing can actually grasp the technique after studying the book. The book contains eight chapters. The first chapter introduces the basic concepts and terminologies of dependable distributed computing, and also provide an overview of the primary means for achieving dependability. The second chapter describes in detail the checkpointing and logging mechanisms, which are the most commonly used means to achieve limited degree of fault tolerance. Such mechanisms also serve as the foundation for more sophisticated dependability solutions. Chapter three covers the works on recovery-oriented computing, which focus on the practical techniques that reduce the fault detection and recovery times for Internet-based applications. Chapter four outlines the replication techniques for data and service fault tolerance. This chapter also pays particular attention to optimistic replication and the CAP theorem. Chapter five explains a few seminal works on group communication systems. Chapter six introduces the distributed consensus problem and covers a number of Paxos family algorithms in depth. Chapter seven introduces the Byzantine generals problem and its latest solutions, including the seminal Practical Byzantine Fault Tolerance (PBFT) algorithm and a number of its derivatives. The final chapter covers the latest research results on application-aware Byzantine fault tolerance, which is an important step forward towards practical use of Byzantine fault tolerance techniques.

In recent years, control systems have become more sophisticated in order to meet increased performance and safety requirements for modern technological systems. Engineers are becoming more aware that conventional feedback control design for a complex system may result in unsatisfactory performance, or even instability, in the event of malfunctions in actuators, sensors or other system components. In order to circumvent such weaknesses, new approaches to control system design have emerged which can tolerate component malfunctions while maintaining acceptable stability and performance. These types of control systems are often known as fault-tolerant control systems (FTCS). More precisely, FTCS are control systems which possess the ability to accommodate component failure automatically. Analysis and Synthesis of Fault-Tolerant Control Systems comprehensively covers the analysis and synthesis methods of fault tolerant control systems. It unifies the methods for developing controllers and filters for a wide class of dynamical systems and reports on the recent technical advances in design methodologies. MATLAB® is used throughout the book, to demonstrate methods of analysis and design. Key features: • Provides advanced theoretical methods and typical practical applications • Provides access to a spectrum of control design methods applied to industrial systems • Includes case studies and illustrative examples • Contains end-of-chapter problems Analysis and Synthesis of Fault-Tolerant Control Systems is a comprehensive reference for researchers and practitioners working in this area, and is also a valuable source of information for graduates and senior undergraduates in control, mechanical, aerospace, electrical and mechatronics engineering departments.

A guide to personal accountability-the fundamental key to leadership success With the toughest economic downturn in recent history, the issue of accountability has taken center stage. However accountability is often confused with punishment, fault, blame and guilt. In this book, the author argues that the only true accountability is «personal accountability» and the only way to achieve it is to take responsibility for the outcomes of your choices, behaviors and actions. The 85% Solution reveals that to be truly accountable, leaders must accept no less than 85% of the responsibility for the outcomes of your actions; Empower themselves to take the risks and actions you must in order to get what they want; and Show they are willing to answer for the outcomes that result from their choices and actions.

Ronald Swartz From Socrates to Summerhill and Beyond. Towards a Philosophy of Education for Personal Responsibility

5408 руб.
A volume in Landscapes of Education.In From Socrates to Summerhill and Beyond: Towards a Philosophy of Education for Personal Responsibility, Ronald Swartz offers an evolving development of fallible, liberal democratic, self-governing educational philosophies. He suggests that educators can benefit from having dialogues about questions such as these: 1). Are there some authorities that can be consistently relied upon to tell school members what they should do and learn while they are in school? 2.) How should the imagination of social theorists be both used and checked in the development and implementation of innovative educational reforms? 3.) How can teachers in personal responsibility schools help their students learn? These questions are representative of problems that Swartz raises in his book.Swartz identifies four educational programs as personal responsibility schools. These are Little Commonwealth (Homer Lane); Summerhill (A.S.Neill); Orphans Home (Janusz Korczak) and Sudbury Valley School (Daniel Greenberg). Swartz then suggests that these learning environments create social institutions that are liberal, democratic, and self-governing and therefore endorse the policy of personal responsibility. This policy states: All school members, students included, are fallible authorities who should be personally responsible for determining their own school activities and many policies that govern a school. Schools which incorporate this policy can interchangeably be referred ...

Corporate Social Responsibility is becoming ever more important in these challenging economic times. Real prosperity requires a combination of economic development with social generosity and demands a new approach towards social and managerial engagement.Mergers and acquisitions are typically complex in nature and have to be seen from a wider perspective that takes into account not just business, but also social, human and cultural dimensions as well. The right strategic approach and regard for Corporate Social Responsibility are important preconditions for a successful merger. The fulfilment of these preconditions can create greater shareholder value and strengthen Corporate Social Responsibility. Acting as a responsible corporate citizen does pay off, and the "syndrome of selfishness" can be overcome - at least partly.

10071.55 руб.
Responsible Research and Innovation appears as a paradoxical frame, hard to conceptualize and difficult to apply. If on the one hand research and innovation appear to follow logics blind to societal issues, responsibility is still a blurred concept interpreted according to circumstances. Different perspectives are implied in the RRI discourse rendering difficult also its application, because each social dimension proposes a different path for its implementation. This book will try to indicate how such conflictual understanding of RRI is caused by a reductive interpretation of ethics and, consequently, of responsibility. The resulting framework will represent an ethical approach to RRI that could help in overcoming conflictual perspectives and construct a multi-layer approach to research and innovation.

HAProxy has been used to provide scaling to the web servers for load balancing in proactive manner. It also monitors the web servers for fault prevention at the user level. Our framework works with autonomic mirroring and load balancing of data in database servers using MySQL master- master replication and Nginx respectively. Here nginx is used to balance the load among the database servers. It shifts the request to the appropriate DB server. Administrator keeps an eye on working of servers through Nagios tool 24X7 monitoring can't be done manually by the service provider. The proposed work has been implemented in the cloud virtualization environment. Experimental results show that our framework can deal with fault tolerance very effectively.Cloud based systems are more popular in today's world but fault tolerance in cloud is a gigantic challenge, as it affects the reliability and availability for the end users. A number of tools have been deployed to minimize the impact of faults. A fault tolerable system ensures to perform continuous operation and produce correct results even after the failure of components up to some extent.

Youngsters are very capable and fast learners if we give them the opportunity to show their potential and earn our trust. Often we underestimate their capabilities and limit them by controlling too much which, in the end, diminish their interest and motivation. By giving responsible tasks and involving the students in the decision making and learning process changes the traditional teacher-centered approach more into a student-oriented learning. According to Self-Determination Theory there are three main factors that affects motivation; the feelings of autonomy, competence and relatedness. Koivisto's approach was to increase these three universal psychological needs by teaching the students responsibility and plan the PE lessons so that the students could practice and demonstrate those teachings. To teach responsibility he used Hellison's Teaching Personal and Social Responsibility model and every tasks in the PE lessons were planned to be cooperative. Directing the students to take the role of an active doer and learner will rise them from being only bystanders; a skill that will definitely be useful later in life.

More and more managerial challenges require leaders to be accountable-to take initiative without having full authority for the process or the outcomes. Accountability goes beyond responsibility. Whereas responsibility is generally delegated by the boss, the organization, or by virtue of position, accountability is having an intrinsic sense of ownership of the task and the willingness to face the consequences that come with success or failure. Through this guidebook you will learn how your organization and its leaders can create a culture that fosters accountability by focusing on five areas: support, freedom, information, resources, and goal and role clarity.

Tao Wang Sliding Mode Fault Tolerant Reconfigurable Control

5465 руб.
SMC-based FTC for nonlinear systems are developed to handle both partial loss faults and total failures in control surfaces. The first method is developed to accommodate both modeling uncertainty and uncertainty incurred by faults. Different design parameters are utilized to deal with the uncertainty incurred by fault and that due to modeling errors respectively in the SMC design. Direct adaptive control is combined into such a SMC to alleviate the requirement of the a priori knowledge of the uncertainty bounds. The second method is developed to redistribute the control effort between faulty regular actuator and redundant actuator autonomously based on effectiveness of the regular actuators. The tolerability of the developed controller is characterized by the amount of fault that controller can deal with. It is used as the threshold to activate the redundant actuator when the regular actuator cannot accommodate the fault alone. The third method without a dedicated FDD is developed based on the absolute quantity of switching surface. The control effort is redistributed to regular and redundant actuator autonomously by monitoring the absolute quantity of the sliding surface.

Describing his relationship with music and students as a young musician, conductor, teacher and Principal, Sean Della Vedova reveals how playing in a band or singing in a choir can impact a student's behaviour at school. Mr. Della Vedova reflects on his own circuitous path playing rock music and the solace he found in musical engagement. Growing up is often not without its challenges and for Mr. Della Vedova, music became a constructive means of channeling his passions and frustrations. After the murder of a British Columbia teenager in 1997, a variety of social responsibility initiatives emerged; Mr. Della Vedova depicts his own unsuccessful attempts to use these ideas. Music, Social Responsibility and Schools features the voices of young musicians as they attempt to negotiate the complex context of middle school. Music and classroom teachers are also featured with their insights on student behaviour and their role in the development of social responsibility. Interviews with students and teachers and an examination of data relating to student behaviour create a compelling argument as to why the arts are a critical aspect of any successful school.

Unde malum from where does evil come? That is the question that has plagued humankind ever since Eve, seduced by the serpent, tempted Adam to taste the forbidden fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil. Throughout history the awareness of good and evil has always been linked to the awareness of choice and to the freedom and responsibility to choose this is what makes us human. But the responsibility to choose is a burden that weighs heavily on our shoulders, and the temptation to hand this over to someone else be they a demagogue or a scientist who claims to trace everything back to our genes is a tempting illusion, like the paradise in which humans have at last been relieved of the moral responsibility for their actions. In the second series of their conversations Zygmunt Bauman and Stanislaw Obirek reflect on the life challenges confronted by the denizens of the fragmented, individualized society of consumers and the form taken in such a society by the fundamental aspects of the human condition – such as human responsibility for the choice between good and evil, self-formation and self-assertion, the need for recognition or the call to empathy, mutual respect, human dignity and tolerance.

More recent incidents and scandals such as "Nestle - Powder Milk", "Shell - Brent Spar", "Enron", "Parmalat", Sweatshops by different sports equipment and electronic devices producers and finally the financial crisis which made the headlines among many others, which did not make it to the front page, have forced companies to consider CSR even more. But also other issues such as climate change and global warming, human rights situation and terrorism affect how companies conduct their strategies and operational practices today. It is observable that almost every large corporation makes some effort to communicate how it is committed to social issues that lie beyond its basic profit objectives. A short look at the websites is enough to notice that companies of many different industry sectors make much effort to present their corporate responsibility initiatives. The companies produce ...

Managing for Responsibility. A Sourcebook for an Alternative Paradigm

4389 руб.
The cascading effects of globalization in the form of changing business environment, economic uncertainties and economic meltdown have brought about a plethora of unprecedented challenges for industry and organizations across the globe in recent years. Management education, which prepares human capital for industry, is expected to address these challenges along with others such as intensifying competition, advancing technology, increasing workforce diversity and accelerating complexity. Yet, current management education is largely based on traditional capitalism where the focus tends toward profits and competitiveness rather than toward a balance among profitability, responsibility, social accountability and sustainability. Consequently, management education in general, and MBA education in particular, need to adopt a paradigm shift in order to be more responsible and sustainable. The book contains contributions on the core management topics covered in general management, organizational behavior, ethics and social responsibility, with a focus on responsible management. Its chapters come from many authors in PRME schools from eight countries. Hence, it is expected to be useful to all the B-schools, across geographies that are interested in embedding responsibility in their management curriculum and teaching methodology.

There are increasing rates in passive citizenship and deterioration on patriotism among citizens (especially in rural areas). Despite major efforts that have been taken in educating societies in Tanzania active citizenship is declining. Media organizations whether electronic or print have the responsibility to sensitize people on citizenship matters. This is because media is powerful in persuasion and can influence people effectively if used creatively. This book is analyzing Media coverage on active citizenship. It sought to find out the extent of media coverage and its influence to people towards active citizenship. The main objective of media in active citizenship is to stimulate media to increase infotainment educational programs that entice people to listen and be part of sharing their responsibility and accountability to societies in Tanzania. The major theories in this book are social responsibility and users' gratification which express how media perform for public interest and consumers' satisfaction of the media messages. These theories link the media responsibility to the society and meeting satisfaction of people in order to persuade people towards intended goal.

Praise for The Age of Responsibility «Wayne Visser's The Age of Responsibility elegantly and persuasively demonstrates the limits and failures of traditional CSR and also the kinds of reforms needed to create conditions for genuine corporate responsibility. Rich with insight, information and analyses, and highly readable for its excellent writing and poignant stories, the book is a crucial contribution to understanding where we are with CSR and what we need to do to move forward.» —Joel Bakan, author of The Corporation: The Pathological Pursuit of Profit and Power (book and documentary film) «Amongst the advocates of CSR as an innovative management approach, Wayne Visser is a well-known voice. This new book states more clearly than most why CSR should not be dismissed, but would benefit from some serious rethinking.» —Michael Blowfied, Senior Research Fellow at Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment, Oxford University and author of Corporate Responsibility «The Age of Responsibility by Wayne Visser is an important book that should be studied carefully by all those seriously interested in the past, present and future of CSR. For me, the most noteworthy contribution is his „ages and stages“ of CSR. Visser identifies five overlapping economic periods and classifies their stages of CSR, modus operandi, key enablers, and stakeholder targets. In forward-looking fashion, he crafts five insightful principles of CSR 2.0 and presents his DNA Model of CSR 2.0 which integrates knowledge and sets forth a more inclusive view of CSR. This book is a significant contribution to the theory and practice of CSR and it will be valued by academics and practitioners alike. I strongly recommend it.» —Archie B. Carroll, Professor of Management Emeritus, Terry College of Business and author of Business and Society «A challenging and thought provoking book. In an age when corporate responsibility is a must for most large businesses, Wayne Visser reminds us that global environmental and social pressures show little sign of receding. He asks: are we as practitioners complacent, or worse, part of the problem? There is hope and optimism but only if we are brave and bold enough to re-engineer corporate responsibility. Read on....» —Yogesh Chauhan, Chairman Corporate Responsibility Group and BBC Chief Adviser Corporate Responsibility «An authoritative tome on the CSR movement. It provides a comprehensive framework to understand the various stages of (and motivations for) CSR in organizations and the economy to date, and a clear vision of what a truly sustainable and responsible tomorrow entails. This is an eminently well-researched and well-structured book that flows coherently with deep insights and valuable vignettes.» —Willie Cheng, author of Doing Good Well: What does (and does not) make sense in the nonprofit world «The Age of Responsibility provides a much-needed wake up call for the corporate responsibility movement. This highly readable account of where CSR has gone wrong and where it needs to go next is essential reading for anyone interested in the role business can play in creating a just and sustainable society. This is the best CSR book you'll read all year.» —Andrew Crane, George R.
