Better, Not Perfect

February 17, 2021 |

Join us for this webinar with Max Bazerman, the Jesse Isidor Straus Professor of Business Administration at Harvard Business School. An expert on negotiation and decision-making, Bazerman draws from philosophy, psychology, and behavioral economics to discuss how we can make more ethical choices by aspiring to be better, not perfect.

Dr. Bazerman’s presentation is based on his recent book, Better, Not Perfect (Harper Business, 2020).  Better, Not Perfect offers a roadmap of how to do more good, consistent with, but not limited to, the philosophy of utilitarianism, given our cognitive limitations and self-interested motives.

Dr. Bazerman’s research focuses on decision making, negotiation, and ethics. His recent books include Better, Not Perfect; 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).

He 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.

This event is free and open to the public, and is offered by the Ethics in Governance Forum of the Center for Ethics at Saint Anselm College, in partnership with New Hampshire Businesses for Social Responsibility.
