Good Organizational Decisions : Ethical Decision-Making Toolkit for Leaders and Policy Makers
(1st ed. 2020)
Part of the Springerbriefs in Ethics series
This book is both a workbook and process guide for making ethical system-level decisions.
It is of great use to any individual or team that is looking for support in making an ethically-justified system-level decision - that is, a decision that will impact people in more than one or two individual situations.
Traditionally, when people think of ethics in the context of policy, what comes to mind is identification of key principles relevant to the work.
Ethics analysis of the policy then explores what these principles mean and how they are balanced in the policy.
The conventional approach only considers formal policies as worthy of ethics analysis, and the method of analysis leaves a number of key ethically significant dimensions of the system-level decision process unaddressed.
The approach in this book assists decision leaders or teams to make better decisions and realize the benefits of quality, legitimacy, and compliance - and most important, greater integrity for all concerned.
Applicable to almost any context, this resource has been effectively utilized in organizations that range from health care to civil society.
