System of Inquiry

I need help getting started with this assignment.

If your organization has an existing Code of Ethics, obtain a copy and be prepared to use it for the assignment. If it doesn't, use one from another organization. (Mine does not) This code of ethics will be used as the basis for the System of Inquiry assignment; b) Develop a system of inquiry to be used in evaluating decision-making, problem solving, and behavior in a business setting. This model should include a basic framework as well as a discussion of why, how, when, and by whom it is used. Consider how you would implement the code, possible reactions to the code from employees, and the effect the code would have on the organization. I need around 1900 words more.

Thanks for the help. It is greatly appreciated.
