Description

Good students need to know more than the rules. Law students need to know more than substantive law, and business students need to know more than basic business principles. Students need to be able to understand how the clearest policies can be undercut by the ways in which humans tend to think, both individually and in groups. Most of the world's scandals weren't caused by villains; but rather by humans reacting to certain types of situations. In retrospect, it's possible to piece together what caused a scandal, but this book gives students the tools to try to forestall the development of a scandal in the first place. By deconstructing well-known scandals, students can put themselves in the role of CEO or General Counsel and determine how they would discover ways to react differently.
