Questions from which those in the main section of the Business Law Exam for 2017 will betaken.Session #1 1. Identify two methods used for decision-making in organizational ethics. Set out one of the two methods.The Baylor HCA Seven Step Model (modified) and Weber’s Method. The Baylor HCA 7 Step Model has been modified, but contains seven basic steps. (1) frame the questions, (2) set out the organizational situation, (3) note the contextual factors, (4) revisit or reframe the question, (5) ask and identify the 12 questions, (6) identify and weigh alternatives, and (7) decide. For the 12 questions discussed in step 5, you don’t need to ask all of these questions. You need todecide which ones are relevant to your situation. There are also too many to list out, so knowing afew of the more common ones can make your decision making process faster. A few of the common ones are: -Understanding how the opposing viewpoint would define the problem (helps for making sure you’ve fully defined the issue)-What is your intention (this can be nested with the “where do your loyalties lay” question, but is important to make sure you’re decision supports your intentions)-The grandmother rule – this basically asks if you could tell your grandmother about your decision with a clean conscious.-Are there any conditions that could allow for exceptions? Is this a rule that you are running into?Weber’s method can look complicated when you read his book, however his hierarchy has been laid out in a much simpler manner. highest level in his hierarchy is given to individual rights and community goods and interest, second level of his hierarchy is given to organizational goods and interest, lowest level of his hierarchy goes to individual goods and interest.

Legal: Certain legal precedents dictate how this case should be handled. First, in the case of Schloendorff states the concept of informed consent “ Every human being of adult years and sound mind has a right to determine what shall be done to his/ her body.” Is the patient of sound mind and legal age? Does the patient have decision making capacity? Are they informed? Is it voluntary? Do they agree? Is it a child Strunk v Strunk- Substituted consent was given? The right to

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
