The effectiveness of business codes: A critical examination of existing studies and the development of an integrated research model [Book Review]

Journal of Business Ethics 77 (2):111 - 127 (2008)

Abstract
Business codes are a widely used management instrument. Research into the effectiveness of business codes has, however, produced conflicting results. The main reasons for the divergent findings are: varying definitions of key terms; deficiencies in the empirical data and methodologies used; and a lack of theory. In this paper, we propose an integrated research model and suggest directions for future research
