Student Response: Managements philosophy and style affects everything the organization does, from setting strategy, to conducting daily business, to influencing the organizations values, operating style and the decisions that are made. The more responsible managements philosophy and operating style and the more clearly they are communicated, the more likely employees will behave responsibly.

Management concerned about control will assess risk and act prudently, manipulation of performance measures will not be tolerated, and ethical behavior will be instilled in and required of employees.
