This course in ethics showcases 10 ways you can make your organization more ethical or how you can help an organization become more ethical. This course applies to individual professionals, to mega corporations, to nonprofits, to educational institutions, and government agencies.

You learn how to predict ethical lapses as organizations begin to measure different things and people will have a strong incentive to report inaccurate and more positive information than is true.  You also learn how the entire field of ethics is expanding to include violations of regulations, treating employees and customers badly, covering up material information, restating accounting results, and how this expanded view of ethics is raising the costs to those who participate in unethical behavior.  Also, you learn of new systems supported by artificial intelligence that will uncover and help prosecute unethical behavior in ways that were not possible just a few years ago.

This course also discusses the role of Chief Ethics Officer, Codes of Ethics, and the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, and other key developments in the expanding field of ethics.
