The basic idea of CSR is that business and society are interrelated. The business-society concept is then developed into new theories regarding CSR (Dierkes & Antal, 1986). In the book of Social Responsibilities of the Businessman by Bowen (1953) these new theories are argued as the beginning of the modern literature on CSR.

That in turn, requires a clear understanding of each partner’s organizational structure, policies and procedures, and culture and norms” (Hughes & Weiss, 2007. para. 7). This however was clearly not the case for the ASG-Danzas alliance.
