Analysis of Personal and Organizational Ethics and Values between For-Profit and Not-for-Profit Organizations

You are an ethnographic researcher writing an article for a popular organizational behavior research journal. Your purpose is to identify key problems related to business ethics in a Not-for-Profit and For- Profit organization. In this potential article please complete the following activities:

  1. Outline the company profile of the not for profit      company you chose to analyze (consult the week #2 journal for the      information you should include).  Explain the ethical dilemma that it      faced or is currently facing.  Analyze the way that it responded to      this ethical dilemma and outline the legal, social, or political outcomes      that emerged after the actions were taken..
  2. Outline the company profile of the for profit company      you chose to analyze (consult the week #2 journal for the information you      should include).  Explain the ethical dilemma that it faced or is      currently facing.  Analyze the way that it responded to this ethical      dilemma and outline the legal, social, or political outcomes that emerged      after the actions were taken.
  3. In part three of your paper, please provide your      personal reflections on the ethical actions that were taken in relation to      the problem.  Evaluate those actions from your own ethical      standpoint.  Use these questions to inspire your analysis: Did the      company respond in a morally responsible way?  Did the company      respond in a morally irresponsible way?  Did the company create the      ethical dilemma or was the dilemma the outcome of an unforeseen      force?  Could the company have done more?  Who was responsible      for the problem and how could it have been prevented?
  • Remember that when you analyze something you should       present logical reasoning and factual evidence to support your       position.  Do not merely answer these questions using simplistic yes       and no answers.  Instead, you should always support your position       with logical argumentation and evidence that explains why you believe       what you believe.
  1. In part 4 of your paper please create a critique of the      actions of these companies based on two of the philosophical theories that      you studied earlier in the course (deontology, utilitarianism, egoism,      virtue ethics, moral relativism).  Determine which moral theory the      company appears to be abiding by in relation to this issue.  Explain      the attributes of the decision that make you believe that this is the      ethical perspective of the company.  If you agree with the ethical      theory of the company, explain why this is the best ethical position on      the issue.  If you do not, explain which ethical position would be      better to utilize in this situation and why you believe that this position      is better. Here are some sample questions to guide your thinking:
  • Which ethical theory did the company use in making its       decision?  Was it the best?  Why or why not?
  • Which ethical theory should the company have       used?  Why?
  • What is the ideal relationship between bad or       suffering and profit?
  • What does it mean to run an ethical business?
  • What is the best way for a company to maintain its       competitive edge and contribute to overall good or happiness in relation       to its workers and customers?
