Shareholder and Stakeholder Theories of the Firm

Words: 929 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 18527713

Appropriate Objectives: Managers in Accounting and Finance
According to the classical theory of the ethical responsibilities of a firm, the sole obligation of the firm is to shareholders and the need to make a profit to sustain them economically. However, this classical theory has since been challenged by arguments that sustainability, obligations to employees and the community, and professional and social ethics must also influence firm decision-making. Particularly in the wake of a rash of corporate scandals, there have been calls to reevaluate the focus on profit-making alone, particularly profit-making with a single-minded focus on the short term.
According to Jensen (2010) “at the heart of the current global corporate governance debate is a remarkable division of opinion about the fundamental purpose of the corporation” (p.32). Managers, particularly in the realm of accounting and finance, may find themselves in the thick of such debate as the formerly single-minded focus upon…… [Read More]

Stakeholder Approach to Corporate Responsibility This Essay

Words: 2979 Length: 9 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 64640378

Stakeholder Approach to Corporate Responsibility

This essay examines the question of whether adopting a stakeholder approach is a sufficient means of assuring that corporations meet their moral responsibilities due society. The essay includes a survey of the literature on the subject.

Any discussion of the effectiveness of stakeholder theory must address who and what are considered stakeholders. R. Edward Freeman (1984) defines stakeholders as "any group or individual who can affect or is affected by the achievement of the organization's objectives." Clarkson (1994) provides a narrower definition, based on the stakeholder's status as voluntary or involuntary risk-bearer: "Voluntary stakeholders bear some form of risk as a result of having invested some form of capital, human or financial, something of value, in a firm. Involuntary stakeholders are placed at risk as a result of a form's activities. But without the element of risk there is no stake." Clearly this position has…… [Read More]

Stakeholder Management Nike Inc NYSE

Words: 1489 Length: 5 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 62924927

More recent surveys have seen Nike continue to trail the industry average, indicating a long-term trend of only somewhat meeting customer expectations (ASCI, 2009).

holesale and retail channels are a critical external stakeholder because of the role that they play in the company's route to market. ithout support of wholesalers and retailers, Nike could only rely on its own-branded stores to bring its shoes and apparel to consumers. Nike's distribution is strong, and the company's merchandise enjoys relative ubiquity. This implies a general degree of satisfaction on the part of retailers with the support that Nike provides them. By the same token, there is no evidence of superior rates of satisfaction among Nike's wholesalers or retailers relative to other firms in the industry.

Nike has few obligations to competitors. In general, the company has a high degree of rivalry with its competitors. hile the competitors are impacted by the actions…… [Read More]

Stakeholder Management Assessment and Summary

Words: 654 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 79430463

The stakeholders of the most successful projects are the catalyst of the traditional managerial functions of planning, organizing, leading, motivating and defining control measures as well (Karlsen, 2002). The observation is also made that the reliance purely on the mechanics of stakeholder management aren't nearly as valuable as having a more unified, highly integrated platform of trust across all stakeholders. The goal of stakeholder management isn't the defining of the status quo from stakeholder requirements or interruptions; it is the creation and solidifying of a very high level of trust and shared risk and reward mindset across the entire stakeholder team.

To enable this level of cross-stakeholder trust and communication, the author has defined a six-step process that is designed for iterative process definition and development of trust-based relationships. These six processes include initial planning, identification, analysis, communication, action and follow-up (Karlsen, 2002). Based on the attitudinal data captured with…… [Read More]

Stakeholder Theory

Words: 668 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 85001882

Stakeholder Theory

In business, there is a conflict of ideas between the competing ideas of shareholder theory and stakeholder theory. This paper will outline what each of these theories is, and underscore some of the issues in this debate.

Shareholder Theory

Shareholder theory is the idea that businesses work for the shareholders. The idea was perhaps most famously elaborated by Milton Friedman in 1970. Friedman, arguing at a time when the idea of corporate social responsibility was just becoming popular, made a case that the social responsibility of business is to increase its profits. He offered the constraint that it should do so within the legal and moral context of the land, but the crux of the argument is that businesses do not have other responsibilities beyond the profit motive. At the heart of this theory is the idea that businesses are nothing more than a vessel by which investors…… [Read More]

Stakeholder Theory and Performance

Words: 636 Length: 2 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 37406546

Stakeholder management is a concept applied to many types of organizations, where strategic decision-making takes into account the interests of multiple different stakeholders (Thompson, 2016). Advocates of the stakeholder perspective have argued that the stakeholder approach is a better way to evaluate a business' success, as opposed to strictly considering financial results (Perrini & Tencati, 2006). The concept of the balanced scorecard hypothesizes that businesses that look after the interests of all stakeholders will perform well on measures affecting all, including the financial measures.

There are differing opinions on this, however. The stakeholder approach advocates for multiple different measures for business, and this is diametrically opposed to the normal means of evaluation, which are strictly financial in nature. It is not actually possible to reconcile these, but both contain financial measures. Many companies seek to portray themselves as giving due attention to non-financial interests, but this is not always the…… [Read More]

Stakeholder Communication

Identification of Stakeholders

Stakeholders are defined as those groups of people or individuals who have the potential to exert influence on an organization. They are the individuals or groups that help businesses and organizations to be successful.

Stakeholders have certain expectations from the company in a very similar manner as an organization needs support from the stakeholders and hence the assessment of the degree to which these expectations are managed to be satisfied by the organization in a balanced fashion is a value that indicates the current and future performance of the organization.

There are two essential groups of stakeholders in relation to any company -- internal and external. The stakeholders who normally are not in the pay role of an organization and who are not directly associated with the company are termed as external stakeholders.

Identifying Stakeholders

Stakeholder engagement is an important component to managing a project. Human beings are complex and it can be difficult to effectively communicate with many individuals and groups. However, it is often the case that a project's success depends on effective communication with those involved. Project managers need to identify the stakeholders to in order to develop a communication plan. Stakeholders can be thought of as anyone that has a "stake" in the project. This can include everyone from investors, to employees, subcontractors, the end users or the operations team, and many more. Furthermore, the specific set of stakeholders can vary from project to project; both internally and externally to the project. Therefore, it is necessary to officially identify the unique set of stakeholders that can influence the project.

Stakeholder Analysis: Starbucks Frappuccino

The Starbucks Corporation initially originated as an attempt to bring European-style cafe culture to the United States. However, in a drive to remain profitable and relevant as well as to honor its initial mission and vision, Starbucks has had to make some concessions to local tastes. One of these has been the development of the Frappuccino, a sweet, blended coffee beverage that is half-milkshake, half-iced coffee: it is both a unique product and also a unique service given that the blend is exclusively available at Starbucks' stores. Starbucks has continued to develop and reconfigure the Frappuccino to suit the evolving palates of its international consumer base. This has ensured that the company has enjoyed a strong bottom line, despite cheaper copycats from its rivals. The company recently released several innovative new flavors for the Frappuccino as well as new sizes to drive interest in its product.…… [Read More]

Essentially, most businesses view shareholders, i.e. The owners of a business as being the most important stakeholder group. It therefore follows that as per this view, a business entity has an obligation to put the needs of stockholder/owners first. It should, however, be noted that there are numerous other groups that also have an interest in the enterprise, and who are affected by the firm's actions. Key stakeholder groups according to Sims (2003, p. 74) include, but they are not limited to, "shareholders and investors, employees, customers, and suppliers…the government and communities…"

In other respects, however, the evidence does not readily conform to theoretical predictions. For example, if gross job turnover is taken as a rough proxy for labor market flexibility -- and since stringent EPL reduces both hiring and firing -- it is quite surprising to find that job turnover rates are very loosely related to EPL rankings. Most remarkably, not only are the estimates for Italy and France, at 21 and 24 per cent respectively, very high in absolute terms (one in every five jobs is either created or destroyed each year), but they are also extremely close to the estimates for the United States and Canada despite the much heavier regulation of dismissals in the European labor markets."

Powerful Stakeholder Policy to Prevent Industrial Environmental Impact

Friedman's stakeholder theory emphasizes the critical function of stakeholders in determining company's goals and responsibilities. Responsibility in a corporation is stated as individual role of each employee and manager to act and report to the upper level and finally to the decision-making boards.

As the top-level management and decision makers, corporate directors address their responsibility to the stakeholders, literally as the "owners" of the company, to whom all the running processes in the company, goal settings, and money spent should be reported. To follow the track, a manager is tied to what his/her employers have defined in the tasks list. Whatever skills and creativity managers possess must be utilized within the range of responsibility they have to the stakeholders, as stakeholders are the top decision-making board.

Company directors act based on the interest of shareholders as stakeholders. Scholl reads them as the…… [Read More]

Dilmah Tea

Stakeholder Analysis

Customer Segments

There are two ways of looking at Dilmah's customers. The buyers -- to whom Dilmah sells -- are the supermarkets and wholesalers that carry the tea. The other customer group is the end user. Tea is a mass market product that is consumed by a broad swath of the population, and to the extent that there is a definable "typical" demographic for tea consumption, this will vary by market. Initially, the company experienced difficulty in attracting interest from supermarket chains, which would then have had to utilize a push strategy to convince consumers to buy the tea. Over time, however, Dilmah was able to build its brand, making it more attractive to both supermarkets and consumers.

The global hot beverages market is worth $69.77 billion and the two major segments (coffee and tea) are both growing (PR eb, 2011). The growing demand, combined with…… [Read More]

" (Gouthro and Gibson, 1996)
