Week 2 Assignment 1

What are the most prudent decisions she can make about her responsibilities to herself and others? “Ethics are norms or standards of behavior that guide moral choices about our behavior and our relationships with others” (pg. 32). The manager has a responsibility to herself to do what she feels is morally and ethically right. She also needs to do what is right within her company. Even though the revisions to the Business Conduct Guidelines are still just a draft, the manager knows what her company would expect of her. She needs to decide if she wants to save her budget and risk losing her job, or if she wants to do the right thing and return the document without using any of the information inside.
What are the implications of those decisions even if there is no violation of law or regulation? If she keeps the file the implications are that she could save her budget, feel guilty about taking the information, and she could also lose her job. If she decides to return the file, she may be unable to help her budget but her company will see her as an ethical employee and she will be able to feel proud of herself for doing what is right.

A descriptive study wants to find out the who, what, when, and where of the study,

Exploratory research clarifies problems, gathers data and creates initial hypothesis and theories about subjects. The primary point of exploratory research is to give researchers pertinent information and help them to form initial hypotheses about the subject.…
