Task Type: Discussion Board Deliverable Length: 1000-1200 words
Points Possible: 50
As you begin to develop standardized ethics policies for ECG, it is important to fully understand the regulatory environment in which the organization operates. You should keep the following factors in mind:
the industries served by ECG (now and potentially in the near future)
its practice areas
the detailed insider information to which consultants are exposed in client organizations regarding current and future activities
the geographical markets covered
the upcoming IPO
the intended acquisition of Government Allies, Inc.
Using the Library, Internet, and other resources, conduct research on ethical standards. Identify at least three specific ethical guidelines (laws, acts, or executive orders) determined by any government or regulatory agencies that are likely to be applicable to ECG and will need to be incorporated into the code of conduct. You should name and provide basic definitions of the guidelines as well as review specific elements of the guidelines, noting their applicability to ECG. Guidelines can often be subject to interpretation, so you may need to be creative in determining what is relevant. Discuss your research and thoughts with the Ethics Review Committee on the Discussion Board.
