Ethical competence, the ability to handle a moral issue in an optimal way, is necessary to promote in both analysts and decision makers stressing the process of decision making. This presupposes analysts to create a foundation so that decision makers can treat the ethical issues in a self-critical, systematic and holistic manner. Decision makers, on the other hand, should be supported and trained to access this foundation and to successfully make use of it in the decision making. For that purpose we have designed two different tools. One of them, EthXpert, is a support tool for structuring and systematization of the ethical analysis. This tool also makes the acquiring of a holistic view easier. These ethical support tools are intended for both analysts and decision makers. Analysts can use EthXpert to create the foundation and structure the process to different solutions. Decision makers can use EthXpert for a systematic view and review of the ethical issue but also to get a holistic perspective of the issue at hand.
