Past several decades management has become a vital concern to society. If we look at pools, we notice that the public does not have good opinion abouth management ethics and business. For the management community to turn this situation around, significant efforts are required. It should be understood what management ethics means, why it is important and how it should be integrated into decision making. Principles of ethics from moral philosophy and management theory are available to inform interested managers.
Next challenge is to avoid immoral management, transitioning from an amoral to a moral management mode of leadership, behavior, decision making policies and practices. Moral management stands on ethical leadership. It requires that managers search out those vulnerable
situations in which in which amorality may reign if careful, thoughtful reflection is not given by management. Further requires that managers
understand, and be sensitive to, all the stakeholders of the organization and their stakes. If the moral management model is to be achieved, managers need to integrate ethical wisdom with their managerial wisdom and to take steps to create and sustain an ethical climate in their organizations. When all that will be done, the desirable goals of moral management will be achievable.
