Organizations need an ethics strategy for dealing with overarching, recurrent, and complex ethics problems. Instead of starting from scratch each time they face these ethical problems and wasting resources, we create operational procedures for ethical decision-making. We identify the value trade-offs, determine precedents, and systemize the ethical decision-making process that is in line with organization’s values.
In setting up the organizational ethics STRATEGY, we help
- explicate the core ethical questions and risks that the organization faces,
- define organizational values and priorities,
- derive organizational ethics principles and design systematic processes for operationalizing them, and
- set up an ethics strategy board to ensure a dynamic ethics strategy responsive to organizational needs.
Clearly defined ethics strategy justifies the organization’s ethical position and help guide the project teams, the leadership, and the ethics analysts going forward.
