Paper A: Application of a decision making framework to an IT-related ethical issue.
For this assignment, you are given an opportunity to explore and apply a decision-making framework to an IT-related ethical issue. A framework provides a methodical and systematic approach to decision making. UMUC
Module 2 - Methods of Ethical Analysis (see LEO Content – Readings for week 2) describes three structured frameworks that may be used for ethical analysis, namely Reynolds Seven-Step Approach, Kidder’s Nine Steps, and Spinello’s Seven-Step Process. There are several ways described in UMUC
Module 2 to systematically approach an ethical dilemma, and while each of the frameworks described has its merits, each will result in an ethical the decision if straightforwardly and honestly applied.
