Learning Goal: I’m working on a business law question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.Chapter 3 – Ethics in Business Making Ethical Business Decisions Business decisions involve legal concerns, financial questions, health and safety concerns, and ethical components. All corporate actors should think broadly about how their decisions and actions will affect other employees, shareholders, customers, and the community.A Systematic Approach: IDDR (“I Desire to Do Right”)
Using the IDDR approach involves organizing the issues and approaching them systematically. This four-step process can help eliminate various alternatives and identify the strengths and weaknesses of the remaining alternatives. Often, the best approach is for a group (rather than an individual) to carry out the process, which comprises the following steps.IDDR METHOD:
Step 1: Inquiry. Identify the parties, specify the problem, and list the relevant ethical principles.
Step 2: Discussion. Compile a list of action options and resolution goals discussing various strengths and weaknesses of each and any legal consequences. Decision makers need to consider what they shoulddo before considering what they can or will do.
Step 3: Decision. Come to a consensus decision on an action plan.
Step 4: Review. Evaluate the decision to determine whether the solution was effective. Did the action solve the ethical problem? Were the stakeholders satisfied with the result? Could anything have been handled better? The results of this evaluation can be used in making future decisions.
