While this is an interesting case study, it is a very lengthy and also fairly complex one as well. To this extent, I don’t want you to simply recount the storyline of the article in your response to the requirements. Rather, I want you to locate and critically evaluate the salient issues of business ethics, and analyze them within the context of virtue ethics - and the questions that I have posed for you below.

 

In a 5-7 page paper (not including your cover page and references), please address the following:

 

1) What I would like for you to do is to choose three (3) "virtues" and then provide a clear definition of each. For example, you might choose such virtues as temperance, justice, honesty, fairness, generosity, or kindness. Be sure that you define each virtue using a quality and objective secondary source.

 

2) Next, apply each of the three virtues you have chosen to the case. Tell me how each of the virtues you've chosen might have been used to appropriately guide the actions and policies of the company. You may discuss how each relates to working conditions, worker safety, fairness, attitudes towards the environment, etc.

 

3) Which of the three normative ethics we've studied - i.e., deontological, utilitarian, or virtue - do you believe is most useful in evaluating the Mattel case? Why?

Expectations:

 

1) Be sure that you clearly define each of the virtues you've chosen. Use the SLP information to guide you in finding a quality and objective source to do so (as we have discussed in the SLP, Wikipedia should not be used as a graduate-level source).

 

2) Be sure to integrate the theory from the journal articles you read in the Background Information section of this module (i.e., Hartman; Duchon& Drake) into your paper.

 

3) Do some additional research in the Cyber Library (include at least 4 references).

 

4) Properly include appropriate in-text citations throughout your paper, and include your sources in your end-of-paper Reference Section. Your references should be derived from at least three (3) peer-reviewed journals and at least one (1) book that you have found in the TUI library. Your references may relate to business ethics, to virtue ethics, to the toy industry, or to any other relevant source. Of course, you have the freedom to include those references that are most relevant and meaningful to your paper.

 

5) Remember to follow the Well-Written Paper guidelines. To this extent, this Case will be evaluated using the following criteria:

 

·         Precision - Does the paper address the question(s) or task(s)?

 

·         Depth - Does the paper address all elements of the topic in sufficient depth? Does it include and apply the background readings and other background resources?

 

·         Critical thinking – Are the concepts of this module applied accurately, logically, and relevantly?

 

·         Organization - Is the paper organized in a coherent and systematic manner? Are headings included as required?

 

·         Clarity - Is the writing clear and the concepts articulated properly? Are paraphrasing and synthesis of concepts the primary means of response to the questions, or are thoughts conveyed through excessive use of quotations?

 

·         Referencing (citations and references) - Does the paper use citations and quotation marks where appropriate? Are all references listed in the bibliography used and referred to via citation?
