Overview

Scarcely a day goes by without revelations of an organizational scandal in business, government, or other institutions. We are all constantly faced with ethical decisions, and the choices we make determine success or failure in our careers. Craig Johnson shows how we can develop our ethical expertise, just as we develop our abilities to manage or oversee operations. Organizational Ethics: A Practical Approach, Second Edition provides opportunities for readers to practice problem-solving and to defend their decisions.

This book is a significant revision of the author’s earlier book Ethics in the Workplace: Tools and Tactics for Organizational Transformation. It retains the practical focus of the first edition but now addresses organizational ethics in both work and volunteer organizations.
