Question;Ethical Considerations in Global Expansion Overview In Unit 1 you formed a team and started the process of company growth. Part of this team formation was to create a values profile. In week 2 one task that your team will face is to analyze growth opportunities for expansion. There are several factors that will impact your decision making, ?Total demand in any quarter will be determined by (1) the market?s sales potential, (2) the seasonal and economic conditions of the global economy, and (3) the nature and extent of competition? (Cadotte & Bruce, 2003, p.3). Another consideration is one of ethics, do your company values support the expansion choices you will be making? Decision making tied to ethics and values may not be easy but can be advantageous. McMurrian and Matulich (2006) cite Ferrell ?These advantages include higher levels of efficiency in operations, higher levels of commitment and loyalty from employees, higher levels of perceived product quality, higher levels of customer loyalty and retention, and better financial performance (Ferrell 2004)? (p.11). As part of the management team, you will need to be in consensus on expansion plans and will be using your values as one filter to make your final decision.
