    Question about System of Inquiry

    This content was COPIED from BrainMass.com - View the original, and get the already-completed solution here!

    If your organization has an existing code of ethics, obtain a copy, and be prepared to discuss it in this week. If it does not have an existing code of ethics, use one from another organization. This code of ethics will be used as the basis for the System of Inquiry assignment.

    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.

    Can you give me an idea how to structure this so I can write a paper on it?
