As consultants and researchers in the areas of corporate and environmental governance, the AHC Group strives to discover what is actionable by linking the internal needs of corporate management with the external demands for new products and environmental leadership. This work is reflected in the kind of deep research found in the six books written by author and AHC Group founder Bruce Piasecki, including Corporate Environmental Strategy: The Avalanche of Change Since Bhopal (John Wiley, 1995); and Environmental Management & Business Strategy: Leadership Skills for the 21st Century (John Wiley, 1999).
His most recent book is The Surprising Solution (Sourcebooks, November 2008), on social response product development (SRPD).
