Abstract [en]

Decision makers in organisations, need a capacity to cope with moral conflicts which arise in their ordinary activities, that is, they need high ethical competence. This competence means (a) high ethical awareness, the ability to anticipate ethical problems in real life and to perceive them in time, (b) the skill to analyse and solve them in an optimal way, (c) the capability to discuss and handle moral problems at group and organisation level, and together with significant others formulate ethical guidelines, (d) the power to argue convincingly for preferred actions or decisions made, and (e) the strength to implement controversial decisions.
