Dr Bettina Palazzo Why good managers do bad things
Even people of the greatest integrity can behave in an unethical way when they are placed in a situation that puts them under heavy pressure. The ethical dimension of their decisions then disappears from their radar. Group dynamics, time pressure and the pressure to perform bring about gradual moral failure. What does this mean for digitization and what should be done?

A credible and robust culture of integrity stands and falls with the executives in a company who are often ill-prepared to be ethical role models. How can companies protect themselves from a moral meltdown, apart from applying the usual prohibitions and processes?
