CMI Unit 614 Ethical Decision Making

Ethical decision making under pressure is a fundamental requirement of a professional manager and leader. Ethical decision making is not easy, especially when decisions are under the spotlight of stakeholder opinion, constrained by organisational, legal and regulatory requirements, where ambiguity exists, where risks are high or where the outcome of decisions will be unpopular.

About this course

All decisions involve some form of value-based judgement and could involve ethical considerations. Whilst mechanistic decision making is the ability to select an action from different alternatives, ethical decision making focuses on value-based judgements and a wider range of issues that are typically more complicated in nature.

On this course, professional managers and leaders will learn the principles and practices of ethical decision making in different organisational contexts.
