On Ethics, Diversity, and Conflict: The Graduate Years and Beyond, Vol. I By James Triplett
eBook (ePub): $1.49
The purpose of this book is to provide readers with an understanding of how ethics, diversity, and conflict are interwoven as well as a practical means with which to view situations from these... More > angles. If one is looking for a “How to be ethical … in x easy steps” such as what one would find on the New York Times Business Best Sellers list, complete with the shallowness and laughable bases of the assertions, this is not for you. Rather than providing superficial and ineffective ways to find one’s cheese or be a leader in twelve easy steps I provide some frameworks with which to view the situations. What you do with them is up to you. Frameworks, much like microscopes or the five-step hypothesis model, allow one to analyze and better understand a situation before deciding what to do. Models do not make decisions, people ultimately do. Anyone interested in sparking a heated debate need look no further than the topics of ethics and diversity to spark lively debate.< Less
On leadership, salad, and the American Revolution By James Triplett

One is left wondering whether there is one defining view of leadership that may at least come close to being considered universal. The result of this wondering is a view on leadership that may, or may not, end up like the debris floating on the sea of possibilities previously mentioned. All of this is framed within the context of pre- and post-Revolutionary War America. The efficacy of the result is up to the reader to discern.< Less
Organizational Design: A holistic view By James Triplett
eBook (PDF): $5.50
Many elements of an organization’s structure are clearly visible, such as organizational charts, categorizations such as a partnership or corporation, job descriptions, and various legal... More > documents yet these still fall short of illustrating how an organization is designed, interacts with its environment, learns, and evolves. The analogy of the blind men feeling various parts of an elephant and coming up with different perspectives is a real phenomenon with organizational structure as well given that various stakeholders will interact with the organizational structure and come away with very distinct views of how the organization is structured. A single or few perspectives of organizational structure then are insufficient to describe a given organization. Systems and the view of structure as recurring activities are the underlying themes of this book.< Less
Surviving Introduction to Finance By James Triplett

Every class I teach on ethics has students who invariably arrive at the question “what is ethics?” This is a question many have wrestled with over the history of the modern human. ... More > Maybe the problem with ethics is that the definition is as varied and elusive as those associated with love or leadership. Then again, there is a possibility it is too closely defined as something that is good when so many situations where an understanding of ethics suggests that an ethical framework may be not-so-good. Here I define ethics in the absence of good or bad; rather it is simply a decision-making framework humans use to manage their activities and to minimize cognitive dissonance between what one thinks and what one does.< Less
