7-2 Short Paper: Too Big to Fail?

Description

This short paper is designed to show student expertise in a particular course element. In this case, the student is showing expertise in the importance of ethical behavior in one’s leaders.

For this short paper, imagine you are working at Enron in the late 1990s. Share an example of unethical organizational decision making from a company leader. Specifically, the paper should address the ethical foundation necessary for effective leadership. What impact would unethical decision making have on an organization? Students should look for opportunities for critical analysis of the communications process as well as how systems theory frames those arguments. The research paper should be drawn from the specific readings in the course material and include the following:

  •   The weaknesses of the decision-making process, paying particular attention to ethical behaviors of company leaders
  •   The impact of ethical behavior on the communications process by company leaders and the resulting impact of those decisions on overall company goals

    and strategies

  •   Your recommendations for company leaders to create best practices for ethically based organizational communications decisions

    Guidelines for Submission: The paper should be submitted as a 2- to 4-page Microsoft Word document with double spacing, 12-point Times New Roman font, one-inch margins, and sources cited in APA format.

In an earlier module, we explored the concept of ethics and ethical behavior. In this assignment, we will take it one step further. You will look at the impact of having an ethical framework when making leadership decisions that can affect the current or future path of a company.

For this short paper, imagine you are working at Enron in the late 1990s. Share an example of unethical organizational decision making from a company leader.

Show how the decision-making process was flawed. What were the ethical behaviors of company leaders, and how did those behaviors impact not only the communications process but the company goals and strategies as well? What strategies supported by systems theory principles and best practices would support your communication practices as an Enron executive?
