Case Study

10-53: Zena Freeman is a contention between a student and her male teacher (Dr. Macho Mann ) Organizational Psychology course. She goes to her teacher requesting help understanding specific organizational psychology research ideas. Educator Macho Mann remarks his student that women don’t have a place in the course since they are not suited for the field and exclusively decline to answer her questions, yet he kept on criticizing her and the female sex overall. He went ahead about how women are inadmissible for function in the business world and utilized her issues understanding specific ideas as his proof to help this. A way to deal with breaking down this case study would be analyzing why a renowned teacher wants to disparage his student looking for his assistance and clarifying which ethical and moral violations he has supported.

Ethical Conflict was::

 

The main ethical conflict includes the standard of “Human Relations” and the guideline of “Regard for People’s Rights and Dignity.” The standard of human relations incorporates sexual harassment, unfair discrimination, exploitative relationships, and avoiding harm. These were available for Zena’s case. Zena was subjected to unfair discrimination exclusively because she is a girl. She was likewise subjected to a type of sexual harassment. Although there were no immediate sexual references or inappropriate touching, she is sexually harassed by Macho Mann’s attempt to keep her in a subordinate position by exclusion and ridicule (Koocher, 2016). The Respect for People’s Rights and Dignity is described as respecting the dignity and worth of all people, their right to privacy, confidentiality, and self-determination. Be aware of, and respect cultural and role differences, and don’t willingly participate or condone activities of others based on prejudices (“Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct.”, 2017).

Case Study

Mini Case 2

Suppose you decide (as did Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg) to start a company. Your product is a software platform that integrates a wide range of media devices, including laptop computers, desktop computers, digital video recorders, and cell phones. Your initial market is the student body at your university. Once you have established your company and set up procedures for operating it, you plan to expand to other colleges in the area and eventually to go nationwide. At some point, hopefully sooner rather than later, you plan to go public with an IPO and then to buy a yacht and take off for the South Pacific to indulge in your passion for underwater photography. With these issues in mind, you need to answer for yourself, and potential investors, the following questions.

  1. What      is an agency relationship? When you first begin operations, assuming you      are the only employee and only your money is invested in the business,      would any agency conflicts exist? Explain your answer.
  2. If you expanded and hired additional people to help      you, might that give rise to agency problems?
  3. Suppose you need additional capital to expand and you sell some stock to outside  investors. If you maintain enough stock to control the company, what type of agency conflict might occur?
  4. Suppose your company raises funds from outside lenders. What type of agency costs  might occur? How might lenders mitigate the agency costs?

Required: Read the Chapter 13 Mini Case on pages 561-562 in Financial Management: Theory and Practice. Using complete sentences and academic vocabulary, please answer questions a through d.

Using the mini case information, write a 250-500 word letter of intent discussing specific strategies for how you will conduct your start-up business with personal and professional integrity.

Case Study

You learned that group behavior can influence human behavior and society as a whole. You will now have an opportunity to apply your understanding of the dimensions and theoretical perspectives that influence human behavior and identify services that promote healthy functioning.

Explain the rationale for selecting this group and setting. •Identify a minimum of two behavior models and theories that apply to the example and highlight the manner in which the setting influences the behavioral outcomes. Justify your chosen models and theories. •Recommend specific effective behavioral strategies and services that can improve healthy functioning of the group.  Submission Details: •By the due date assigned, prepare an 8- to 10-page analysis paper. Your response should rely upon at least three sources from professional literature.
