Moral and ethical decision making : literature review by Michael H Thomson( )

4 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report outlines the Department of National Defence's approach to moral and ethical decision making outlined in the Defence Ethics Program (DEP), and considers the scientific and military research pertaining to moral and ethical decision making. This work discusses the various conceptual definitions of morality and ethics, and explores the Defense Ethics Program in detail. The DEP argues that several factors influence oral and ethical decision making, which are reviewed. Following this, both formal and informal CF training mechanisms that address moral and ethical decision making are explored. The second part of this review considers the academic and military literature relevant to moral and ethical decision making

Organizational Trust in the Canadian Forces (La Confiance Organisationnelle dans les Forces Canadiennes)( )

2 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As the CF continues to protect Canada, defend North America, and contribute to international peace and security, it will become increasingly important that the CF be perceived as trustworthy by personnel within the organization and by potential external partners. It is also critical that Canadian Forces members know how to effectively distinguish among organizations and potential partners who are likely to behave in trustworthy ways, and those that are not. The purpose of this review was to systematically explore research and theory relevant to organizational trust, and the antecedents and consequences of organizational trust, with a specific emphasis on the military context. This review first explores the dimensions that influence trust and the ways in which trust develops, referents of organizational trust, and sociological underpinnings that serve as preconditions for organizational trust. The factors that influence organizational trust are also explored, such as organizational structure and change, diversity, and culture. In addition, the effects of organizational trust (e.g., job satisfaction, organizational commitment, citizenship behaviours, performance) are discussed. Finally, as a better understanding of organizational trust in a JIMP context will require considerable work related to further capturing the nuances of trust in military contexts, ideas for a future program of organizational trust research are presented. Specific research issues and questions related to learning more about the factors and the effects of organizational trust are offered
The Impact of Culture on Moral and Ethical Decision-Making: An Integrative Literature Review( )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Canadian Forces (CF) operations today occur within the Joint, Interagency, Multinational and Public (JIMP) framework. This shift has implications for moral and ethical decision making (MEDM) in operations, in part, because of the potential for cultural differences to exert influence. As part of a multi year program at Defence Research and Development Canada (DRDC) Toronto investigating MEDM in an operational context, this report considers the impact of culture on MEDM. The first part of this report discusses the relevant theory and research related to the impact of cultural diversity on psychological processes, with particular attention to MEDM. Though there are a number of cultural dimensions for investigating cross cultural differences, this report limited its scope by focusing primarily on the individualism/collectivism dimension, also understood as independent/interdependent self construal. Research highlights cross cultural differences in cognition, motivation, emotions, and behaviour. In general, people from non Western cultures (collectivist or interdependent) pay greater attention to situational and contextual factors than people from Western cultures (individualist or independent), and this shapes how they see, think, and interact with their world. Cross cultural differences impact MEDM in that they shape construals of moral obligations, judgments of accountability, attributions of responsibility, conceptions of agency, feelings of guilt, and ethical stances to conflict resolution and negotiation situations. Cross cultural differences could also impact on team processes
Team Modelling: Literature Review( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Increasingly, Canadian Forces operations require the use of highly complex teams that function in joint, interagency, and often distributed environments. This report is a literature review of scientific and military research pertaining to team performance. This review consists of three sections. First, the factors influencing team performance are explored, and three major sets of factors are considered in relation to team performance: team factors, task factors, and team processes. Although very large, the team performance research has generally not built progressively upon previous work and illustrates equivocal results. Nonetheless, it is clear that characteristics of the team, the task, and team processes are all important influences on team performance. However, exactly how each of these factors influences team performance is often dependent on other factors. Moreover, the majority of the existing team research is limited in that it has not generally been conducted in realistic settings. The second section addresses measures of team performance, considers the conceptual challenges of measuring team performance, and explores specific measures of team processes and outcomes. The final section reviews some conceptual and computational models of team performance. Although models have generally not been subject to extensive validation efforts, they provide confirmation of the factors that are prominent throughout the team literature. The review ends with a short overview of the literature, and recommendations for a program of team research. Specifically, the existing team literature is inadequate with respect to understanding distributed teams consisting of people from diverse backgrounds and experience. Moreover, as teams of the future are also likely to be increasingly complex, more understanding of how heterogeneous teams as well as an entire team of teams will function in distributed, joint, and interagency environments will be critical
