Integrating Research and Responsibility

Integrating Research and Responsibility

Collaborating with an Executive WITH MAX PÉRIÉ

(p.173) Chapter 8 Integrating Research and Responsibility
Creating New Knowledge in Management
Stanford University Press

This chapter, a collaboration with Max Périé, a senior executive for an international company, explores executive work by looking at the views of Mary Parker Follett and Chester Barnard. The executive builds a self-governing whole of which he is also an integral member by establishing a moral code for his organization, subordinating himself to it, and using himself to develop responsibility in others. The executive sees to it that organizational members take personal responsibility for the whole. The chapter thus offers an explanation of what Barnard described were practices “almost impossible” to observe and what Follett argued could not be done by anyone for anyone.

Keywords:   Max Périé, executive, Mary Parker Follett, Chester Barnard, personal responsibility, moral code
