Getting explicit about the code of conduct

Getting explicit about the code of conduct

Essay task:



Consider the “Getting explicit about the code of conduct” case study above. Imagine that you are the IT Manager in the story. Then: choose either utilitarian or Kantian ethics (NOT BOTH) and: drawing on what you have learned about that theory from the lectures, discussions and wider reading, write a 1,500 word essay (no more) in which you briefly (up to 500 words):



  1. Outline the general principles associated with your chosen theory and the framework/process of how it is to be applied.


  1.  Identify the main ethical issues in this case.


Then, use at least 1,000 words to:



  1. Use this as a foundation and then you apply the theory to the case above where you show and justify what your decision and action would be. And, very importantly, why (your reasons for) your decision as the IT manager, drawing on the chosen theory throughout.



Essay requirements:

  1. Place yourself in the role of the IT manager in the case study.
  2. Imagine you have been on this course and learned about Utilitarianism
  3. Apply principles and processes associated with Utilitarianism ethics.


Refer to but do not recite the case study.


Want to see sentences and paragraphs each of appropriate length. Each sentence should contain a thought or an idea; each paragraph should contain an area of discussion.


Utilitarianism use a table to capture the salient points but it should be discussed fully so the reader can follow your argument and understand the points that you want to make.


This is not an exact science so this is not a prescription. The guide to word usage that follows is just that – a guide. You are learn-ed enough by now to make informed and intelligent decisions about how to use the words available (1,500 maximum) to best effect.


That is one of the things we will be assessing when we mark your work – how well have you used the words to make the points and the argument you want to?


Introduction – tell us what’s in the essay we are going to read. In short, your introduction. Suggested range: 200-300 words. ( avg. 250)


Tell us which theory; the framework and the principles. Discuss this drawing on literature and authors who have helped you to understand it. Not just the ones in the reading list but others you have found yourself from other reliable academic sources.

Suggested range: 250 – 350 (550)


Apply the ideas/principles from Bentham and others or Kant and others to the ‘code of conduct’ case by referring to the salient (look it up if you need) issues for Utilitarianism.


Discuss and/or demonstrate the strengths and weaknesses of the framework and principles you have chosen.


Suggested range: 400-500 words (1,000)


Here you will discuss how the theory has helped you (and the reader) see not just the ethical dilemma in all its aspects but also a way forward; what possible actions might be taken. Why are all but one rejected? Why is the actual action advised/taken.


Suggested range: 250 – 350 words (1300)


Tell us what you have done. You reassessed the situation using ethical theory. In doing so you made an argument for an ethical way forward.

[You might reflect on how this has helped you in providing a way to resolve ethical dilemmas of whatever sort but this would depend on how many words you have left to play with]


Suggested range: 150-250 words (1500)

I ordered the literature review for my research project in rush delivery. I was not expecting that they would complete my order 2 hours before my chosen time. The quality is also nice. Thank you for help.
