We are delighted to feature Prof. Ronald A. Howard, Stanford professor and one of the founders of the decision analysis discipline, in a moderated conversation about ethics in business and in life. Prof. Howard directs teaching and research in the Decision Analysis Program of the Department of Management Science and Engineering at Stanford, and he is also the Director of the Decisions and Ethics Center, which examines the efficacy and ethics of social arrangements. His book with co-author Clint Korver, Ethics for the Real World, examines ethical lapses that are far more widespread than can be attributed to the actions of “just a few bad actors.” Using examples from business and life, Prof. Howard explores how to avoid ethical remorse, apply distinctions to clarify your own thinking, generate alternatives, and create a personal code to guide decisions.
This webinar is presented by Wharton Executive Education and Strategic Decisions Group, who have collaborated to offer the Strategic Decision and Risk Management certificate program for executives and business leaders. This certificate offers mid-career professionals the opportunity to enhance their leadership skills with a focus on making decisions under uncertainty.
