    Instructions

    This posting should be a minimum of one short paragraph and a maximum of two paragraphs. Word totals for this post should be in the 100–200-word range.

    Scenario

    Ethics is one of those elements that factors into every aspect of management, from founding statements—for example, vision, mission and values—to culture, leadership and management. In fact, Sun City Board’s CEO Tom Wilson has decided that it is critical for the company’s brand and risk management as they build their business online and internationally. Tom has asked you to draft a code of ethics for discussion.

    For Discussion

    1. As preparation for this discussion, conduct additional research on how to write a code of ethics. You can use any credible source for structure and components. One possibility is Deloitte’s Suggested Guidelines for Writing a Code of Ethics/Conduct.
    2. Reflect on what you learned in this module and your supplemental research and propose a Code of Ethics for Sun City Boards.

    Posts 2 and 3: Respond to Classmates’ Posts

    Instructions

    After you have created your initial post, look over the discussion posts of your classmates and give at least two thoughtful responses to two different classmates (one per classmate).

    A response posting should be a minimum of one short paragraph. Word totals for these posts should be in the 75–100-word range. Whether you agree or disagree, explain why with supporting evidence and concepts from the readings or a related experience. Include a reference, link, or citation when appropriate. The goal of your response posts is to extend discussions already taking place or pose new possibilities or opinions not previously voiced. Your goal should be to motivate the group discussion and present a creative approach to the topic.
