It was once believed that business and ethics constituted separate and
mutually exclusive realms. Businesses that perpetuate such a belief or still
hold that â??business ethicsâ? is an oxymoron are at risk.
If you are a manager, you may have been called on to actively promote
ethical-organizational integrity. But this means understanding the defining
principles of and creating an organizational culture that measurably
encourages ethical conduct. This book will help provide you and other
managers with much needed guidelines for ethical decision making in
business that are philosophically sound and strategically advantageous.
This book provides a brief introduction to and general framework for
managing for ethical-organizational integrity in a way that will enable you
to identify those ethical duties that must be fulfilled in order to morally
justify the pursuit of profit. It will help you develop a morally imaginative
and socially entrepreneurial decision making process that is driven
towards generating and sustaining social value.
