Final Project-An Ethically Transformed Organization
Each student must complete a Final Project. You may use any material from any source while developing the Final Project, but every word (unless expressly quoted with appropriate credits given) must be your own work. Present the information covered in this project in one comprehensive paper (7-9 pages), using APA format, and containing a minimum of six references in addition to the textbook and Bible. Submit the Final Project by the end of class.
Take notes on how you will respond to the Final Project as you progress through the course. There are two intermediate “check-points” called “milestones” for this project built into the course as additional assignments to assist you in developing the project. Use the Final Project rubric provided in the syllabus to ensure you have met all the criteria
Submit the Final Project. Correct APA format is required, including the standard APA title page (example available at http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/1/).
The Final Project is divided into three sections: Section I: An Ethically Transformed Organization, Section II: An Organization with an Ethical Danger Sign, and Section III: An International Organization. To achieve maximum points for content and analysis, the following elements need to be thoroughly addressed:
Section I: An Ethically Transformed Organization
⎯ Locate an organization that you would identify as an ethically transformed organization. Analyze the characteristics that would classify this organization as an ethically transformed organization.
⎯ Locate an organization and examine the organization through the lenses of Kidder’s nine checkpoints. Determine from the examination whether or not the organization is prepared to make ethical decisions. Provide justification for your assessment.
Section II: An Organization with an Ethical Danger Sign
⎯ Locate an organization that has exhibited an ethical danger sign. Provide a rationale for identifying the danger sign and write a plan for this organization on how it could insure the danger sign is addressed.
⎯ Using the same organization you located for the first part of Milestone 2, select a write about a leadership theory that can best address the ethical challenges facing the organization.
Section III: An International Organization
⎯ Locate an organization that does business globally. Analyze the ethical issues the organization faces in the global marketplace and discuss whether or not the organization addresses the ethical issues appropriately.
⎯ From Section I, locate an organization that you would identify as an ethically transformed organization. List the characteristics that would classify this organization as an ethically transformed organization in order to begin your analysis that will be part of the Final Project.
⎯ From Section II, locate an organization that has exhibited an ethical danger sign. Provide a brief description of the danger sign that you will analyze as part of the Final Project.
