Decades ahead of her time: advancing stakeholder theory through the ideas of Mary Parker Follett

Decades ahead of her time: advancing stakeholder theory through the ideas of Mary Parker Follett Though the work of Mary Parker Follett predates the field of stakeholder theory by almost 60 years, and no reference to her work is found in the stakeholder literature, many of the tenets of stakeholder theory echo Follett's ideas precisely. More importantly, Follett's work yields a much richer foundation for stakeholder theory, as well as providing direction for its advancement. The article traces both the similarities and differences between Follett's work and that of contemporary stakeholder theorists, and shows how Follett's ideas can be used to enhance our current understanding of the theory and improve its implementation. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Management History (Archive) Emerald Publishing

Abstract

Though the work of Mary Parker Follett predates the field of stakeholder theory by almost 60 years, and no reference to her work is found in the stakeholder literature, many of the tenets of stakeholder theory echo Follett's ideas precisely. More importantly, Follett's work yields a much richer foundation for stakeholder theory, as well as providing direction for its advancement. The article traces both the similarities and differences between Follett's work and that of contemporary stakeholder theorists, and shows how Follett's ideas can be used to enhance our current understanding of the theory and improve its implementation.
