Scenario

There are a number of Megatrends across the world that are affecting how organizations operate including:

  1. Climate change (eg environmental degradation, resource scarcity, etc),
  2. Shifts in global economic power (eg from G7 to BRIC, etc),
  3. Technological breakthroughs (eg automation, Artificial Intelligence, advanced analytics, blockchain etc),
  4. Rapid urbanization (eg majority of global GDP generated in cities, increasing infrastructure investment needs, cities consume the most resources and emit the most greenhouse gases, etc),
  5. Shifting demographics and social changes (eg growing inequality, ageing population, etc).

Working for a management consultancy, you are reviewing and advising on the current ethics of one multinational organization (public, private or third sector). In particular you are required to evaluate its ethical performance in its response to one of the megatrends above.

  • Describe what the megatrend is, how it is affecting the organization (and organization`s industry) and what the organization is doing about it
  • Apply and discuss ethical theories to make sense of their actions and what they have done in response to the megatrend (cover at least the last three years).
  • Critically evaluate the organization’s ethical performance, what has helped/ hindered, and assess the limitations of ethical theories you used
