    • Compliance as a Service in Information Technology Manufacturing Organizations: An Exploratory Case Study

      Bill Emerson; Damien McGovern; Tom Butler (International Federation for Information Processing, 1970-01-01)
      In recent years, environmental concerns have led to a significant increase in the number and scope of compliance imperatives across all global regulatory environments. The complexity and geographical diversity of these environments has caused considerable problems for organizations, particularly those in high technology industries. This paper first employs institutional theory to help understand the challenges for information technology manufacturing organizations that emanate from global institutional environments. While culturalcognitive and normative influences from society at large and industry based bodies have stimulated environment oriented corporate social responsibility initiatives, it is undoubtedly regulatory influences that have generated the deepest responses in terms of the adoption of new compliance oriented procedures and protocols. This paper first describes the general response from the organizational field in which high technology firms operate and notes the extent of the response, with environmental compliance management systems being one of the institutional arrangements that organizations have adopted. The findings of empirical research based on Compliance and Risks Ltd.s compliance to product application and its deployment in Napa Inc., a Silicon Valley based Fortune 500 company, are then offered and analyzed to illustrate the scale and scope of information systems support required to institute adequate compliance oriented protocols and procedures in response to global regulatory influences, while also answering concerns raised by normative and culturalcognitive sources.

    • Small groups revisited : a psycho-pastoral study

      Darmanin, Alfred (University of Malta. Faculty of Theology, 1985)
      Writing about small groups in the eighties may be considered as an
 attempt at tracing the history of a phenomenon once at its peak of interest
 but now an anachronistic topic. For some this might appear like resuscitating
 a controversial issue already buried a decade ago. The small group phenomenon witnessed a sharp increase of interest and became a constant focus
 of attention during the decades following World War II only to taper off
 during the seventies. This is particularly noticeable in surveying the psycho-
 logical literature on the subject and in observing the growth and decline of
 this phenomenon in church-related settings. This historical fact allows us,
 however, to view and assess the small group phenomenon 'at a distance',
 retrospectively, without being biased by the popular enthusiasm so
 prevalent at the time.
    • Medical ethics and the clinical curriculum: a case study.

      Doyal, L; Hurwitz, B; Yudkin, JS (1987-09)
      There are very few medical ethics courses in British medical schools which are a formal part of the clinical curriculum. Such a programme is described in the following, along with the way in which the long-term curriculum committee of the University College and Middlesex Hospital Joint Medical School was persuaded to make it compulsory for first-year students. Pedagogical lessons which have been learned in its planning and implementation are outlined and teaching materials are included concerning student and course assessment which should be useful for others engaged in similar work. Finally, some of the institutional obstacles facing such attempts are discussed, particularly problems concerning timetabling, different types of opposition and the consequent importance of building alliances among clinical teaching staff.

    • Ethical Theory and Bribery

      Adeney-Risakotta, Bernard T. (InterVarsity Press, 1995)
      "In interviews with Christian from all parts of the world working in "Third World" countries, the most commonly cited moral problem is corruption or bribery. This chapter explores how Western ethical theory of moral choice might contribute to a sharpened perception of the nature of moral reality in relation to this thorny issue. I will examine a case study in order to consider how classical ethical categories and more recent conceptions contribute to an understanding of what is at stake in a particular crosscultural problem. This will provide both an in-depth ethical analysis of bribery and the outlines of an ethical method for evaluating other crosscultural dilemmas. [...]", p. 142

    • Mediating Conflicting Constructions of Childhood Sexual Experience: A Case Study

      Simonson, Lynnell J. (DigitalCommons@WayneState, 1996-01-01)
      This paper describes a case study involving two primary school age children and their sexual experience together. The young girl interpreted the experience as abuse, and the young boy defined the experience as exploration. The cultural, environmental and structural factors which may have contributed to this difference of interpretation are presented. The author discusses the criterion used to distinguish between sexual exploration and sexual abuse between two children and addresses the difficulty in applying these standards to the normal sexual behavior of children. A case study is presented using the constructionist paradigm to mediate the conflicting interpretation of events, so that both definitions of the situation are recognized as authentic. The case study presents a situation where it may be in the best interest of all involved to validate both childrens' perceptions of reality. Finally, the author concludes with a detailed discussion of the mediation methods used to resolve the intractable conflict and the ethical issues raised by their use.

    • ACA ethical standards casebook

      Internet Archive; Barbara Herlihy (American Counseling Association, 1996-01-01)

      Žitinski-Šoljić, Maja (University of Dubrovnik, 1997)
      The author's central concern is how conflicts of interests and roles in business should be properly evaluated. Through the study and analysis of particular cases we realize that fundamental obligation of business becomes the appeal to protect the environment, to establish economic justice and to overcome egoism, relativity, and even organizational misconduct in business management. The problem of confrontation of ethics with law, shows that the question of product liability includes thinking of everything that could possibly go wrong. Business ethics is not a theoretical science, it does not attempt to apply ethical principles violently, it rather helps us to refine our own commitments, using the problem-based form of analysis to show what is desirable to do in an antagonistic situation in which we must be aware of more and less successful ways of handling problems.
