Ethical Thinking Presentation
This discussion helps you develop the skills to master the following course competencies:
- Analyze factors, issues, and ethical considerations associated with business activity.
- Demonstrate the use of tools that support business management, analysis, and decision making.
- Communicate in a manner that is professional and consistent with expectations for members of the business professions.
You will analyze a case study from three ethical perspectives and publish your findings as a PowerPoint presentation. This exercise will help you apply the ethical frameworks that you have been reading about and hone them to fit your own approach when analyzing business issues. You will also gain experience in presenting information using PowerPoint.
Read Case 4.1 on page 34 in your Business Ethics as Rational Choice text. Using the new information given to you about John Pepper in Exercise 1, develop and post a PowerPoint presentation that presents your results in applying the generalization test, utilitarian test, virtue ethics test, and any other pertinent analysis to this situation.
Your presentation should consist of 5–6 slides and include slides for an introduction, conclusion, and references. Use the notes section of your PowerPoint to add detail or to explain the content of each slide as you would if you were presenting the PowerPoint. Be sure to include citations where appropriate. As a business professional, it is important that you understand the proper way to cite and reference other authors’ work. Review your APA manual as you complete your PowerPoint, focusing on Chapters 6 and 7.
The case study analysis is just one part of this assignment, so invest an equal amount of your energy into creating a presentation that conveys the information clearly and concisely, is professional in appearance, and is engaging for the audience. Use the resources provided on using PowerPoint and creating effective PowerPoint presentations to help you refine and improve your PowerPoint skills.
- Post your PowerPoint presentation.
- Include a list of items on which you want others to focus when they review your presentation. For example, you may want to ask your peers to carefully read your conclusion to ensure that it is appropriately supported, or you may ask how effective your slides were in conveying your information.
Review the posts of your peers and respond to one of them. Address the items your peer would like you to focus on, but make sure your feedback considers both the content of the material and its presentation. Tell what you liked about the presentation. Make a suggestion or two for improvement.
