To prepare for this Discussion, review this week’s resources. Select one of the following cases: Guantanamo (McNeal, 2010) or the Exxon Valdez (Kurtz, 2003). Then, consider the following:
- How did organizational culture influence ethical decision making?
- What are the ethical issues?
- What are the issues facing the decision makers?
- How did the organizational culture influence decision making?
- What did you learn from this case that you can use as a public administrator?
- What, if anything, does the case have in common with the 2013 Internal Revenue Service (IRS) scandal over IRS audits of conservative nonprofit agencies?
- To what extent does attention by the American public media influence ethical decision making of public and nonprofit public administrators? Do you think that such media exposure should determine administrative decisions?
