By Steven G. Mandis
Harvard Business Press Books, 2013

This is the story of the slow evolution of Goldman Sachs–addressing why and how the firm changed from an ethical standard to a legal one as it grew to be a leading global corporation. In “What Happened to Goldman Sachs,” Steven G. Mandis uncovers the forces behind what he calls Goldman’s “organizational drift.” Drawing from his firsthand experience; sociological research; analysis of SEC, congressional, and other filings; and a wide array of interviews with former clients, detractors, and current and former partners, Mandis has written an insider’s history that offers invaluable perspectives to business leaders interested in understanding and managing organizational drift in their own firms.
