Jason Poblete's curator insight, October 18, 2013 11:21 AM

As for whether this really constitutes a re-branding toward healthy foods is up for debate- the new signage for the still-present Big gulp certainly detracts from healthy living- it is unmistakable that 7-eleven is trying to mae a more upscale push to compete with the Sheetz and Wawa's of the convenience store crowd, and that's a good thing.

Many would think that unethical decisions are often made by "bad" people, but as stated by the article, "good" people are the majority of individuals that make unethical decisions. The blame is placed on these individuals because many are unaware of the ethical components within every decision. They may not fully understand the consequences that may come with every decision. They may also be unprepared to handle ethical dilemmas due to lack of ethics training.

Group Decision Making – 7 Ways to Get Things Done

Group Decision Making – 7 Ways to Get Things Done | MGT 307-02 | Scoop.it
Of course, the one we have a tendency to strive for is consensus building, but not every decision is suited for consensus. It’s essential to choose the right method for the topic being discussed.

I doubt it’s necessary to achieve consensus on the decision about what color to paint the employee break room. But there are people out there who will kill themselves not just to get consensus but to reach unanimous agreement. There could also be times when it’s in the best interest of the company for a small group to make a decision, such as a company downsizing.

The next time you’re asked to a meeting, try to take a few moments to watch the group make a decision. See if you can figure out if the decision is being made by the minority or by the majority of the group. And what decision making method they’re using. Ask yourself if the method fits the message.

The article discusses the difficulties leaders face when trying to reach a unanimous decision based on the best interests of the company or group. The article presents 7 ways in which a decisions can be made, and how to accurately identify them in a group setting. The article states that leaders are to keep their company's objective in mind and to not utilize their biased views on what is right or wrong when making decisions. In turn making it difficult to completely acknowledge the views of every individual involved in the decision making process.

Why Mission Statements Suck

Why Mission Statements Suck | MGT 307-02 | Scoop.it

I’m not arguing against a clear definition of where a company is going and what sets it apart. My beef is with the way the particular corporation’s guiding principle is expressed; it is generally verbose, convoluted and incapable of resonating with employees or inspiring them.

Based on the view point of this article most mission statements are inconsistent with the values of the company. They are generally to long and misunderstood by their very own employees. According to the article the most effective mission statement can be expressed in no more then ten words.

Could ethics exist without religion?

Could ethics exist without religion? | MGT 307-02 | Scoop.it

Does our moral behavior derive from religion? Is it possible for us to be moral without being part of any religious group? One thing that is certain is that Western culture is based on Judeo-Christian philosophies. Almost every aspect of Western Culture is based Judeo-Christian beliefs from our legal system to our mores. However, our moral behavior did not all derive from religion. Social mores all derive from what is best for the collective. If everyone kills one another or steals from one another then it would be a detriment to the society. Therefore, governments exist not only to protect people but to punish people who violate basic social mores.

People who are religious are more likely to commit acts of violence against one another than people who are not religious. The author of the article mentioned that human history shows that religious people tend to have more combative impulses than people who are not religious.
