Iii. what you are going to do...

  1. Watch the video and make sure you understand the situation from David’s point of view. At the end David makes his decision. You should be open to the possibility that there may be other decisions that can be taken in this situation that may be better from a moral point of view.
  2. What is David’s problem? Try formulating it in terms of values that are under threat and conflicts between values. You may even want to identify information needs relevant to solving this problem?
  3. What solutions do different individuals in the video recommend to David? How good are they in terms of realizing or protecting key moral values? Does David (and the video) pay sufficient attention to these different recommendations? Does he miss better value-integrative solutions?
  4. Make your decision. Defend it in terms of key moral values. Use the values provided above in the UPRM College of Business Administration’s Statement of Values.
  5. Give special attention to the links provided in this module. Are there solutions to David’s problem not mentioned in the video?

Iv. exercise: problem solving with gilbane gold

Directions

Copy-past this exercise and complete in your groups. If you have any questions on the stages of problem solving, consult the module "Three Frameworks for Ethical Decision Making and Good Computing Reports," module m13757.

    Problem specification

  • Classify your problem. Is it a conflict between values, a conceptual disagreement, a factual disagreement, or an impending harm. Provide a one or two sentence justification for your problem classification
  • Frame your problem in three different ways. How does Gilbane Gold appear from the frame of an environmental engineer? From the standpoint of a local farmer concerned about soil contamination? From the standpoint of a manager who is under pressure to maintain razor-thin profit margins as well as authority over those under her supervision?
