Ethical Dilemmas in Management by Christina Garsten

Book Description

This exciting new text engages with the issue of ethical dilemmas encountered in different organizations. Rather than exploring the definition of ethical conduct, this book focuses on the way in which the process of organization produces dilemmas of ethical behaviour. Using illustrative accounts from corporate settings as a basis, the book explores the conditions that lead to ethical dilemmas and the strategies organizations adopt to deal with these dilemmas or steer away from them. The book suggests that ethical dilemmas are often dealt with by directing attention away from the core problem, rather than engaging with and solving it. This is a fascinating text, which raises important questions and provides a deeper understanding of the dynamics of ethical processes. A company's ethical behaviour is a major criterion by which the company, its products and services are judged and is therefore crucial to sound management in today's organizations. Ethical Dilemmas in Management is essential reading for all students of business and management and ethics.
