Blind Spots

Here’s a review, by Harvey Schachter, of Max Bazerman and Ann Tenbrunsel’s book, Blind Spots: Why We Fail to Do What’s Right and What to Do about It

The link to the review is here: Ethics become blurred when end justifies the means

Schachter’s bottom line:

This book is a step toward that training, bringing together a host of studies by the authors and others that probe how easy it is for us act less ethically than we would like. The book also shows how organizations can take advantage of these findings in behavioural ethics to change their informal culture and reduce the chances that they will follow the News of the World into oblivion.
