An empirical investigation of the influence of selected personal, organizational and moral intensity factors on ethical decision making

Journal of Business Ethics 35 (1):65 - 74 (2002)
Abstract
This exploratory study of ethical decision making by individuals in organizations found moral intensity, as defined by Jones (1991), to significantly influence ethical decision making intentions of managers. Moral intensity explained 37% and 53% of the variance in ethical decision making in two decision-making scenarios. In part, the results of this research support our theoretical understanding of ethical/unethical decision-making and serve as a foundation for future research.
