    Business Ethics and Strategy Incorporating Measurement and Understanding Your Corporate Culture


    Organizations today are in the public spotlight, and not always in a favorable manner.  Politicians and the media use businesses as convenient targets for blame; and unfortunately, at times businesses have made it easy to be criticized.  In this program, we will examine why organizations are viewed favorably; what is it that enables certain businesses to be seen in a positive manner?  From this discussion, we will analyze the role of management in bringing about an ethical climate in the enterprise that insures positive results while performing as valued institutions in the community and society.

    Presented by Aaron Buchko, PhD, Professor at Bradley University.
