QUESTION 1

As a consultant, one of the ethical issues you will face is pricing. What is the correct price to charge your client? We all struggle with this, especially in a global setting. In a third world country how would you determine your pricing or what is fair?

QUESTION 2

Global consultants can face many unethical issues. Ethical issues may be facing with a bribe, or experiencing an organization that is considered a “sweat shop”, or wages where an employee is paid less than $1.00 a day. How would you manage these types of ethical issues as a consultant?

QUESTION 1
Research and data gathering is critical to the consultant’s success. This information leads the consultant to a discovery of the organization. Explain how the consultant is able to diagnosis the organization using the information gathered. In your opinion, how would the consultant know if this is the right diagnosis?
As a consultant, it is always advisable to ensure that the correct diagnosis is made and it is the most appropriate for the problem. This is to come up with the best possible solutions. Knowing the correct diagnosis is quite tricky, but a consultant can detect it through the results that they collect. The results collected will tell whether the correct diagnosis was made. Before solving the problem can begin, there is the test-run to see if the solution will be effective. It is during the test-run (which is usually a small test to check whether the solution will solve the problem) that a consultant can check to see. Extensive research can also indicate whether the correct diagnosis was made (Kamler, Estelle).
QUESTION 2
Stories are gathered using interviews from key stakeholders to determine what the “real” story is or problem the organization is facing. Stories create the picture for others to better understand the world they live in. Another term used is phenomenology. What does this mean and how do we use this in our research.
A phenomenology is an approach that puts more concentration on consciousness and the objects associated with the direct experience. In research, it is important because it gives the researcher an understanding of how the subject feels about the topic (Keiling, Tobias). Phenomenology can use by the consultant to determines what is going on in an organization as it is the story that the employees will be talking about and who knows better than the workers? It is also essential to understand that sometimes the phenomenology may just be a story or perception and may not necessarily be accurate.
