• identify the ethical dilemma The Ethical dilemma in this case is whether Jack should report that Sally did not share the information regarding Quality Food’s current balance sheet which gave the appearance of far less leverage than the firm actually carried. Because Jack is not sure if Sally hid this information in self interest, as she promised the president of Quality food that she will get the loan approved if he would get her mortgage approved at low interest rate through Ocean Savings. Or there is no relation between these two incidences and he was just over thinking. • state the options available There are a few options available to Jack, he can just let it pass and not think about it or he could confront Sally and clarify his doubts or he could be patient and find the company policy on unethical practices, find out if what Sally did falls under an unethical practice as per company’s ethical code of conduct, then gather the facts to confirm his doubt, discuss it with Sally and then report it or report it anonymously if the option is available. • construct an argument for action based upon ethical principals Position A - — Rights Lens Arguments: 1.
Planning for the Chevy Volt The Chevy Volt case is definitely an example of GM’s resistance to change their strategic decision making in a changing environment and uncertain economy. As stated, GM was comfortable manufacturing the gas-guzzling SUV’s and failed to strategically plan in the wake of increasing oil prices and the effect that these vehicles were having on the environment. As a result of the increase in gas prices, the SUV’s that they manufactured were no longer economically feasible for consumers. In a large organization like GM, there was certainly resistance from some of their managers to not produce the Chevy Volt. This is an example of cognitive biases.
In the business of branding, negative reviews could cost you a lot and therefore it is important that she makes a decision that will not her now and also in the close future. The option of withdrawing her name from the product in its entirety will not be one I will support, she has to be able to go through tough times such as this one and accept the challenge and overcome it. This might be a first for her in terms of a challenge and having bad reviews with products her name is on but might pass the wrong message to business public. In branding other than the consumer review, you have to count on the business to business review as well. Businesses might become
Include any important potential economic, social, or political pressures, and exclude inconsequential facts. That the most important fact was left out of the report. When making an arrest and writing a report it is important to have the key facts in the report right away when dealing with a case. With a DUI arrest it would be very important to indicate that the husband was driving. Now there is question by the prosecutor if the officers saw the husband driving the vehicle or if the officers honestly forgot to put that information in the report.
Perhaps they believe that the employees are contributing to the revenue losses and are stealing merchandise. These are all self destructive in nature and could impact their ability to remain in business and keep good employees. Making the decision to close two stores without adequate justification drastically reduces it footprint in the market place. It appears that either the store supervisor or manager is not engaged with the employees and consumers; do not have sufficient training on company ethics policies to enforce them; or they do not have a fully robust ethics program in place to address to ongoing issues. PART B Company Q can take some immediate steps which I believe would turn a downward trend in to positive results.
The recommendation to develop objective criteria in order to fairly distribute the value is not appropriate in reality. The fact that the existence of objective criteria can be questioned, provides the negotiator with an incentive to misuse the Harvard method in order to enhance his or her outcomes for the disadvantages of the other party. In the "Mustbach" exercise I took the role of the seller whereas my partner Sandra was obliged to buy a configured car. I actively took the initiative and asked Sandra a lot of questions about her interests and her willingness to obtain and sacrifice certain features. In comparison with my preference structure I found out
Because this salesperson did not have any action after Lauren said that that’s a little more than she wanted to spend. That action means the salesperson did not want to make business with Lauren. 2. What did the salesperson do wrong in this case? In this case, the salesperson‘s mistakes are the non-response action and inactive attitude.
She makes the argument sound trivial, when she says that education can be provided to each donor about their choices. She then goes on to ask: “Besides, how unfair is it to poor people if compensation enhances their quality of life?”(133). With this question she seems to dismiss the chance that a poor person might be exploited, as if it was nothing to worry about. She also mentions the distastefulness one might feel towards the business of selling and buying organs. She simply rebuts that one needs to have a better reason to not save a life than to just be ethically disgusted.
There is a big difference in the sale tactics of the 2 adverts. The Fiat is a soft sell advert because there is no reference to the price of the car or any statistics about the car whereas the Chrysler advert displays the price in big numbers at the top of the advert and it also refers to the fuel consumption of the car. This shows that the 2 adverts use different tactics to advertise and sell the car. I think that the target audiences for these cars are the same; both of these cars are family cars. Both of the cars are designed to be comfortable and safe, they are not advertised to be fast sports cars or stylish city cars; they are advertised as normal cars.
Part I: I believe Susan bond has two options, first is to ignore the ethical implications at Empire Globe Corporation and proceed with further negotiations with Power authority while helping Treadstone maximizing profits. And the second is to reveal the truth without becoming a sacrificial lamb (that seems to be her inherent nature, as it sprouts from her family background) for the false alarm by Treadstone about inefficiency in the Feldport operations to Feldportians. If I was in Susan’s position, at this point when I know Treadstone and James are not going to reveal truth to all the stakeholders for sure, I will file a complaint about the manipulated advancements by Treadstone to the public of Feldport and the authorities. Treadstone was playing under the law and Feldportians were willing to make any special arrangements to attract Empire globe back to the Feldport, therefore he might have been successful in his plans, however for me, taking advantage of someone while showing a miser image is ethically incorrect and has to be escalated to party adversely affected, immediately. So far, I believe Susan is on right track; in this case her personal belief about being reasonable to all the stakeholders is the foundation of her ethical beliefs.
