Exploring ethical management from systemic perspectives

Jae Eon Yu


We have witnesses 'ethical management', which has increasingly much attention to Korean business managers (Yu and Moon, 2004). Ethical management regards as a fatal way of sustainable development, not dealing only with real and practical issues of business firms, but also with complex and problematic issues of business networks in societies. In other words, for business managers, ethical management became a strategic choice that fosters ethical and rational decesion-making that aims to achieve ethical objectives in an effective and efficient manner (Ferrell, et al., 2005). In order to study practical issues of ethical management from systemic perspectives, this paper seeks to appreciate the ethical management, which can be made through the reflexive research on Korean business contexts.

Systems approaches are introduced and demonstrated to study ethical management in business practice.
