Let’s assume we find ourselves in the following scenario: In your spare time at work, you have developed a new spreadsheet program on your work computer in your office. It is even more powerful, yet easier to use than anything on the market. You share your new program with a friend who encourages you to market it on your own because you could probably make an incredible profit in a very short amount of time. This is a very attractive option, yet you developed it using company equipment and during time that you were at work. What do you do? Keep in mind the 8 Steps are: Step One; Gather the facts Step Two; Define the ethical issues Step Three; Identify the affected parties (stakeholders) Step Four; Identify the consequences Step Five; Identify the obligations Step Six; Consider your character and integrity Step Seven; Think creatively about potential actions Step Eight; Check your gut!

Discuss the course of action or solution that the process of analyzing the situation from the Eight Steps has led you to in this particular situation. 4.
