What we learned from Enron and other corporate scandals.
Who should attend:
Top organizational executives and managers only. Selected non-managers and company heir apparents may be selected to learn these management topics.
1 Day Course
Minimum 50, maximum 500 recommended.
Implications of Enron and other corporate scandals upon business. How can your organization benefit from the failings of Enron and others. This puts business events of the last two years into perspective...covering a broader scope of subjects than has the mass media. Business ethics encompass much more than accounting fraud and stated values of stocks. Topics discussed include the society that produced business scandals, accountants and auditors, CEOs, spin doctoring and accountability issues with all managers.
Corporate Social Responsibility.
This is concerned with treating stakeholders of the company ethically or in a socially responsible manner. Consequently, behaving socially responsibly will increase the human development of stakeholders both within and outside the corporation.
Aligns an organization's products and services with stakeholder expectations, thereby adding economic, environmental and social value. This looks at how good companies become better.
Constitutes a balance between economic and social goals and between individual and community goals. The corporate governance framework is there to encourage the efficient use of resources and equally to require accountability for community stewardship of those resources.
Ethics is the science of morals in human conduct. Institutions must conduct many activities and processes which impact their general welfare. The issues go beyond nice rhetorics. Companies who fail to address ethical issues of the day are endangered species. Whatever the public expects of companies, then those companies should expect the same of themselves.
Crisis Lessons Learned.
Business and organizational stories do not hit the public consciousness until there is a crisis. People decry them and rest assured that such doings are not happening in their companies. Often, it is assumed that some protector or regulator will adequately address the issues. When the occurences are of high magnitude, the outcry becomes larger. As people see the events having a direct effect on their economy and livelihood, they take notice. Some of those events that had profound impacts upon us recently, examined in this chapter, include the collapse of Enron, Arthur Andersen, business after-effects from September 11th, Ford-Firestone, K-Mart and the dot.com bubble burst.
Corporate Responsibility in Practice.
The next trends and opportunities for business. This offers suggestions for serving mutual goals, fulfilling mutual responsibilities. and the effective use of organizational resources, talents and expertise. Also discussed will be ethics as part of the Big Picture, Situational Ethics, Codes of Ethics, Life Ethics, Managerial Ethics, Worker Ethics, Positioning oneself as ethical within the organization, Creating teamwork, both inside and outside the organization and Walking the Talk...Ethical Behaviour.
