given that no ethical theory is perfect, discus how ethical theories can assist a person to make an ethical decision. construct an argument for or against deontological (non-consequential) theories as the preferred option to use for ethical decision making and explain the key differences between this perspective as opposed to a consequential one
it is argued that utilitarianism is useful for in an organizational context because it gives us an objective perspective that is not clouded by self-interest. it also encourage the decision-maker to consider his or her decisions may effect. opposing arguments suggest that as we often to not know with certainty what the future consequences of our actions will be, the value of adopting utilitarianism as an effective tool for ethical decision-making can be questioned. construct an argument defending which of these perspectives do you agree with and why or why not?
In contrast of question 2 above, some theorist that deontological theories (non-consequential theories) should be the preferred option for ethical decision making in organization as opposed to utilitarianism. Construct an argument supporting the use of deontological theories as the most preferred option for organization ethical decision-making using appropriate theory and your personal experiences to provide evidence of your position.
