Then, in your analysis, address the following critical elements:
Evaluate the extent to which the project was hampered by ethical dilemmas. Was there an appropriate balance between engineering integrity and the business needs? Defend your position with specific evidence. Identify which elements of the engineering codes of ethics apply to the ethical dilemmas present in the case. Cite specific examples of each to illustrate. Reflect on the ethical concerns in this case in regard to how they inform your own personal moral code as an engineering manager. How would you weigh the costs and benefits of the opposing values in this case? Illustrate with specific examples.
Note that these are the same critical elements that you will apply to the VALID case study in your final project. This mini case study allows you to practice your application of ethical concerns.
