From the Inside Flap:

Integrity is the new old-fashioned buzzword; everyone knows their business has it and the competition doesn't. But what really makes the difference between your caliber of excellence and theirs? The Bottom Line on Integrity gives you 12 keys to show you the difference.

Serious businesspeople know that in the competitive world, its not only profitability that takes creativity and focus; serious businesspeople always have their eye on their company's reputation, too.

Through numerous case studies, current examples, and probing questions that examine common business practices, the author empowers you to provide strategies and solutions for generating discussion and defining the standard of integrity in your company, and start applying them today.

McKay's real-life stories throughout the book, earned through years of experience working with some of the world's largest corporations, illustrate some of the dilemmas-and solutions-companies of excellence and integrity have encountered. The conversational style of The Bottom Line on Integrity makes this thorough, thought-provoking book an on-target read for both the manager and MBA student.
