1. (5 pts) Identify your case study company.
For the Week 7 Assignment, you are to choose your case study from one of three companies: Ford, Boeing, or Purdue Pharmaceutical. Simply state here the name of the company you have selected for your Week 7 Research Paper.
2. (10 pts) Statement of ethical dilemma.
The company you have chosen to write about (no. 1 above) made a business decision –i.e., chose a course of action – which adversely affected others as well as the company. In making this decision, the company was faced with an ethical dilemma. As you have learned, an ethical dilemma is a conflict between alternatives where neither alternative is desirable. Choosing either one will compromise something. Each choice will have its downside: it could compromise ethics, cause ethical and/or legal problems, cause harm, raise difficult questions, or otherwise lead to an undesirable situation. Ideally, the decision maker would do both acts or neither, but he cannot. He has to choose, and can only choose, one. The dilemma is being confronted with these undesirable choices and having to choose one. (For examples of ethical dilemmas, see Bucaro, (2017). Required Reading, Week 5 Lesson).
· In a single, well-crafted sentence, state the ethical dilemma that is presented in your chosen company’s situation.
3. (10 pts) Ethical frameworks:
· Identify and briefly define the ethical framework illustrated by your chosen company’s decision. (See Weeks 5 and 6 Lessons and Required Readings.)
· Identify and briefly define the ethical framework that you will argue you chosen company should have utilized to reach a different result in the situation.
4. (5 pts) Recommendation. Identify at least one business practice as a lesson business management can learn from this case study.
