Better, Not Perfect: A Realist’s Guide to Maximum Sustainable Goodness

September 11 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The Program on Negotiation is pleased to present a virtual book talk with Max Bazerman on his forthcoming book: Better, Not Perfect: A Realist’s Guide to Maximum Sustainable Goodness.

This event will be held virtually via Zoom. Registration is required: https://harvard.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_aDSPzI5ZSnaDtTFfr9b5pA

About the book:
Every day, we make hundreds of decisions. They’re largely personal, but these choices have an ethical twinge as well; they value certain principles and ends over others. This book explores how we can better make principled choices. Bazerman argues that we can better balance both dimensions—and we needn’t seek perfection to make a real difference for ourselves and the world.

About the speaker:
Max H. Bazerman is the Jesse Isidor Straus Professor of Business Administration at the Harvard Business School. His recent books include Better, Not Perfect (forthcoming), The Power of Experiments (with Michael Luca), The Power of Noticing, Judgment in Managerial Decision Making (with Don Moore), and Blind Spots (with Ann Tenbrunsel).

Bazerman received an honorary doctorate from the University of London, the Life Achievement Award from the Aspen Institute’s Business and Society Program, the Distinguished Educator Award from the Academy of Management, the Academy of Management Career Award for Scholarly Contributions to Management, and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Organizational Behavior Division of the Academy of Management. In addition, Bazerman was named as Ethisphere’s 100 Most Influential in Business Ethics and as one of Daily Kos’ Heroes for going public about how the Bush Administration corrupted the RICO Tobacco trial.
