Leg 11. From Gothenburg to The Hague (II) – Ethical Essential Toolkit for Strategists.

Have a beautiful night again. We are going to post twice today because we have to deliver what we promised, and hurry up in our way to the Norway coast again before going down south-west to The Hague.

integrity compassLet´s start with the topic number two for Leg 11. Ethical Essential Toolkit for Strategists. This subject is something which we can´t cover in one publication. We provided this toolkit to senior students of business administration in one year, which means more than 9 months of teaching (each class of 90 minutes, with a frequency of three times per week). We can´t guide you as we wish in one blog publication about the application of ethics in integral strategy.  But we will try our best to give you a summary of how to solve practical moral problems in business and the main considerations to take into account when establishing ethics at the core of any business or corporation. This is an exercise that has to be done every day, by each business owner and employees.  It is the only way to keep a healthy business. But as a starting point, we have to check your business or corporate strategy from past, present or future amoral diseases. become one fleshFor further details or references, please feel free to contact us through this web-inbox or twitter (Eleonora Escalante Strategy @eliescalantech). Even more, we encourage you to wait for my first book publication to show you how to connect the dots between your corporate strategy and ethical strategy, the two in one, bundled together as when a man and a woman decide to leave their respective parents to marry and become one flesh. My idea about integral strategy is founded on the hypothesis that there is no separation between corporate strategy and ethics strategy. Integral Strategy is the result of bundling together both. But you will have to wait for my book to give you the theory, examples, and applications for the future in the challenging context of Industry 4.0 and more.

Nevertheless, the rationale behind the application of ethics in business, with the purpose to solve practical moral problems has several methodologies, techniques, and approaches. There are several techniques designed by so many experts and these are used in ethical analysis and argumentation. But generally speaking, we have prepared the following slides with other author´s ideas to illustrate the basics:

beyond the shoreBefore turning off my computer tonight, we wish to thank you for your time and patience. It is hard to compress so much into 10 or 12 slides. These subjects are huge. Ask my former students… they will tell you I am not lying. We wish we could have more time in our way to Den Haag. In addition, there are so many things we wish to share, and we have to do it in writing. Forgive us for not preparing beautiful videos, it wasn´t the right time… we couldn´t afford to make them with our wished level of quality. It is my first sailing strategic race too.  For the next VOR edition in 2021,  we hope to bring you better content… Alex Guillermo Lozano Artolachipi and I will marry, we will evolve, we hope to have babies, and we will deliver our blog 2.0 with wonderful videos prepared specially for you. May JesusChrist bless our strategy business.

Wishing you a lovely journey up north to the Norwegian coasts, and all the best for the rest of the teams until tomorrow. Again, lots of courage and positive spirits. Cheer up! We still have several hours of sailing. Think strategically to catch the wind.

Thank you and good night.127199-Good-Night-Sleep-Tight
