Ontemporary ethical dilemma found in the business world or a topic in business ethics
Select a contemporary ethical dilemma found in the business world or a topic in business ethics, which you believe requires a resolution (needs to be solved or improved) and includes a recommendation or solution.
(1) you must use at least four reputable sources
(2) you must include at least three philosophers or philosophies (i.e. how would Socrates react to this situation or your recommendation?)
(3) your solution/recommendation must be supported by a reputable source (i.e. an expert in the field; an article which cites another organization who successfully used your recommendation and found it to be successful).
4) all work not known before you started this assignment must be internally cited
(5) must include a Works Cited Section
1. Background of Problem or OpportunityWhat is the background of the organization or area you are researching? What is the reason you
have selected it? Any information describing the organization or topic in detail or what has led you to research this topic should be included
in this section, as well.
2. Philosophical Critique (Include the philosophies whether as a separate section or integrated throughout the paper).
3. RecommendationWhat is your solution to this problem or opportunity? Explain in detail how you will resolve the issue or what your
recommendation is to improve it (such as creating a code of ethics for an organization which does not have one).
4. Organization/Expert ReactionHow do you know it may be successful? It could be based upon surveys, articles or other reputable
secondary sources, or by interviewing someone whose substantive background could support (or not support your recommendation). Please
keep in mind, whether your recommendation/resolution is supported or not supported will not affect your grade. Think of your solution as a
hypothesis. Also, do not use a Friendwho works for the company that Thinks it may be a good idea,unless this person has substantial
experience in the field/industry/business.
5. Conclusion-Since the background of the problem or opportunity will be part of the introductory section, to finalize this research, have a
conclusion. In this section, you can summarize your findings, describe your philosophical justification, the organization reaction and how your
organization (or the industry) will benefit from your solution (if applicable).
6. Works Cited Section
7. Make sure you internally documented your work.
