This paper begins by discussing some of Howard Gardner's ideas about raising business standards by promoting a culture of ethics in organizations. The author cites G. Marino on the problems of teaching ethics and Charles Kerns' ten "musts" to integrating ethics into a business environment, and then sets forth seven points to be considered in formulating a strategy to ensure that an organization acts ethically. The author concludes that implementing an ethics program into an organization is a major challenge and needs to be developed in close conjunction with senior management in order to incorporate their value structure.
