The paper presents a brief history if the Quakers focusing on the beliefs and practices that contributed to their success from 1650 to c. 1880, and which also contributed to their demise from the latter part of the nineteenth century onwards. We also reflect on the various lessons that can be learned through studying the Quakers and their approach to management.||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||Academy of Mangement||Copyright (published version):||2017 Academy of Management||Keywords:||Quakers; Business history; Management; Silence; Corporate social responsibility||DOI:||10.5465/AMBPP.2017.17271abstract||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||Academy of Management Proceedings 2017||Conference Details:||Academy of Management Annual Meeting, Critical Management Studies Division, Atlanta, United States, 04-08 August 2017|
