Analyzing Ethical Dilemmas
When facing ethical dilemmas, decision makers must forego their personal self-interests and consider the impacts on their stakeholders. A useful approach to analyzing ethical implications of decisions is to use one or more rules of ethical decision making. In their book Contemporary Management, Jones and George (2014) identify the following “Rules for Ethical Decision Making”:
• Utilitarian Rule: An ethical decision is a decision that produces the greatest good for the greatest number of people.
• Moral Rights Rule: An ethical decision is one that best maintains and protects the fundamental or inalienable rights and privileges of the people affected by it.
• Justice Rule: An ethical decision distributes benefits and harm among people and groups in a fair, equitable, or impartial way.
• Practice Rule: An ethical decision is one that a manager has no reluctances about communicating to people outside the company because the typical person in a society would think it is acceptable. (pp. 113-114)
Consider answering the following questions in evaluating an ethical dilemma:
• Step 1: Identify the issues surrounding the situation—facts of the situation, moral/ethical issues, major stakeholders.
• Step 2: State the alternative actions that could be taken and identify possible impacts on stakeholders. What other facts are needed or would be valuable in making a thorough analysis?
• Step 3: Apply one or more of the “Rules of Ethical Decision Making” to each of the alternatives. What are the potential consequences of each possible course of action? Rate the strength of each argument.
• Step 4: State your course of action with detailed justification.
Consider the following evaluation rubric when constructing your analysis.
