The article resonates with recent insights into the reputation of corporate culture and responsibility and implores the business world to take a leaf out of Michael Woodford’s book to do the right thing in such cases of lawlessness. Not to shy away from the slightly negative coverage of the legal figures involved within these events, the article ultimately highlights though what is really to blame in all this:
‘a deferential corporate culture in which it was not done to ask difficult questions’
And what was Michael Cross’ verdict on Exposure?
‘It is raw and sometimes toe-curlingly personal instant history. And well worth reading for anyone who wonders how they might deal with revelations of misconduct at their own workplace.’
Michael’s words strike home how we all have something to learn from reading Exposure whether it is for the gripping story or the moral revalation that we can take from Michael Woodford’s dramatic account.
