Attached is the paper I started and the journal that the directions say to reference; below are the directions for the paper.
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
Outline the company profile of the not for
profit company (The Carter Center) (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.
Outline the company profile of the for
profit company (Toyota) (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.
In part three of the 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
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.
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
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?
