Concept

Reflecting on Ethical Engineering Organizational Cultures and Ethical Leadership

Background

In Modules 1-3, we discussed the components of professional credibility, the concepts of ethical leadership and ethical organizational cultures, and the importance of core values in engineering organizations. Making ethical choices and decisions has many prerequisites, including a sound values system (personal and organizational), an understanding of the moral context of the situation, and some key “top-down” character strengths and competencies throughout the organization.

This team-based assignment is directed towards better understanding the concepts of Ethics, Ethical Cultures, and Ethical Leadership in an Engineering context, through taking a look at the engineering ethics issues involving the Volkswagen software fraud to meet emission standards (a.k.a. “DIESELGATE”).

  1. Research and summarize the following:

o a) the key events that led to the eventual outcome, including the key leaders and engineering staff who were involved.

o b) the outcomes from the decisions that were made, from a legal, financial and retribution perspectives
