Ethics and learning in organizations

Print Share
An organization, such as a business, a government department, a charity, or a club, is an organized group of people with a particular purpose. Although such a purpose is common among all individuals in an organization, the reasons and motivations that each organizational member has for achieving that purpose might differ from individual to individual (Pérez-López 2018). This chapter discusses the impact of individual decision-making and learning on organizational learning and shows how ethical decision-making is critical for the personal development of people as well as to facilitate that an organization achieves its goals. The chapter is mainly based on the research of Pérez-López (1991, 2018).
