In large companies, there will always be the questions that we ask ourselves. Should we do this? When this question is posed normally there are work schedules that are in progress that get surpassed. The question is asked by the team but because there isn’t any oversight while the issue is being dealt with something that we thought would help the situation later ethically hurt the entire organization. This is why there are the ethical workshops that pull intellectual creators into them. This is with a hope to cause and give pause to those of that create mediums to aid in the digestion of data. Non-Technical documentation would aid in an oversite committee to understand where there could have been a gap in understanding. We as the creators just want to resolve the problem that we are presented with. Where we need the help is making sure that we document our findings well enough that we could better construct a fix that would fit the regulatory compliances.
Sure they could it in my current company it is happening as I am typing this response to this discussion question. Some things fall between the cracks but with a committee in place and the proper documentation created it gives a sense of a pause for us. At least we get to take a second look at what is needed to resolve the anomaly with the executive team so that they know it is on the radar. In a large enterprise, they had better have some ethics training available. An organization is only as strong as its weakest individual, group, training course, etc… We as people are flawed and sometimes ruthless. It is up to the company to ensure that everyone that is employed by them that they have the ethics rules and complacency in place so that they at least know where the organization stands when it comes to how they operate and what is expected by each employee. The employee themselves have to want to do the right things for themselves and the company for ethical reasoning to be favored and handled correctly. Large enterprises can’t afford to leave risks and gaps of this nature left open. It would certainly end them.
