    The Morality of Everyday Activities: Not the Right, But the Good Thing To Do.Daniel Nyberg - 2008 - Journal of Business Ethics 81 (3):587-598.
    This article attempts to understand and develop the morality of everyday activities in organizations. Aristotle’s concept of phronesis, practical wisdom, is utilized to describe the morality of the everyday work activities at two call centres of an Australian insurance company.
