    • From the video, discuss the ethical principles influencing both Hundert’s and Bell’s thinking. Provide specific examples to support your response.

  • Develop S.M.A.R.T. goals that you see benefitting your current (or future) employer. Provide your rationale.

From the video, discuss the ethical principles influencing both Hundert’s and Bell’s thinking. Provide specific examples to support your response.

In this video the professor is speaking from a place where he does everything he can to push his students down the path of the principle of personal virtue and the principle of utilitarian benefit. But Bell seems engulfed by greed and success by any means available for use of his self-interest. This video, unfortunately, is a small glimpse of what happens and what is celebrated. I have been hearing two quotes recently that kinda freak me out…..1. “No good deed goes unpunished” 2. “if you are not cheating, you are not trying”. I also heard the student say “as usual” when he ask the instructor are they going to keep things between the two of them as if this wasnt the first time something like that situation had happened.

Develop S.M.A.R.T. goals that you see benefitting your current (or future) employer. Provide your rationale.

 

As a data agent for my company here is my S.M.A.R.T compilation

S- ease of information sharing

M- No exact goal is given, we are trusted to be as productive available.

A-We work as a team across the city

R-Supervisors are very experienced in the tasks being performed, so problem solving is an ease.

T- We are privately owned, no corporate structure, 2 managers and first-line. One of the managers is the owner as well.
