    Training Professional Managers in Decision-Making About Real Life Business Ethics Problems: The Acquisition of the Autonomous Problem-Solving Skill. [REVIEW]Iordanis Kavathatzopoulos - 1994 - Journal of Business Ethics 13 (5):379 - 386.
    In the present study business managers in Kabi Pharmacia Company were trained in the use of the autonomous method in their decision-making about solving real life business ethics problems. According to the psychological theories of Piaget, Vygotsky, and Kohlberg, it is possible to promote the acquisition of the autonomous ethical skill by instruction and training. Indeed, participation in a one-day educational programme which focused on the training of the autonomous cognitive ability and not on the transfer of moral content, was (...)

    Development of a Cognitive Skill in Solving Business Ethics Problems: The Effect of Instruction. [REVIEW]Iordanis Kavathatzopoulos - 1993 - Journal of Business Ethics 12 (5):379 - 386.
    Education in business ethics focuses mainly on the improvement of ethical awareness, on philosophical issues, or on the transfer of moral content. However, serious problems with the effectiveness of these methods have been reported. In line with the psychological theories of Piaget, Vygotsky and Kohlberg, and in order to avoid the above problems, the educational effort in the present study was concentrated on the stimulation of development of the underlying autonomous cognitive ability to solve moral problems. Adults were trained to (...)

    The Use of Information and Communication Technology in the Training for Ethical Competence in Business.Iordanis Kavathatzopoulos - 2003 - Journal of Business Ethics 48 (1):43 - 51.
    Information and communication technology has certain advantages that can contribute positively in business ethics education programmes. It is necessary, however, to identify first the factors critical for acquiring ethical competence and later to proceed to the construction and use of such tools, in order to ensure that these tools are indeed adapted to the process and the goals of business ethics education. Based on psychological theory and research, it is argued that one such crucial factor is the psychological construct of (...)

    How to Make Decisions with Algorithms.Anders Persson & Iordanis Kavathatzopoulos - 2018 - Acm Sigcas Computers and Society 47 (4):122-133.
    The use of automated decision-making support, such as algorithms within predictive analytics, will inevitably be more and more relevant and will be affecting society. Sometimes it is good, and sometimes there seems to be negative effect, such as with discrimination. The solution focused on in this paper is how humans and algorithms, or ICT, could interact within ethical decision-making. What predictive analytics can produce is, arguably, mostly implicit knowledge, so what a human decision-maker could, possibly, help with is the explicit (...)

    Cloud Computing.Norberto Patrignani & Iordanis Kavathatzopoulos - 2015 - Acm Sigcas Computers and Society 45 (3):68-72.
    This paper proposes a reflection on cloud computing among users, organizations, policy makers, and providers. In particular the focus is on the social and ethical implications for organizations developing a strategy for cloud computing. Also the new roles and responsibilities of the CIOs are analyzed within the complexity of the stakeholders' network around cloud computing. The cloud opportunities but also the issues of concerns are investigated due to their importance for organizations that are more and more shifting towards virtual enterprises.

  7. Kohlberg and Piaget: Differences and Similarities.Iordanis Kavathatzopoulos - 1991 - Journal of Moral Education 20 (1):47-54.
    Abstract Kohlberg's cognitive?stage?developmental theory is often described as a further development of Piaget's moral theory. In discussing the two theories, it is shown that Kohlberg attempts to describe the features of moral thought and not the formation of the independent moral function. Nevertheless, Kohlberg's later research, as well as research done by his disciples, approaches Piaget. In trying to study the issue of moral education in ?just communities?, they reintroduce the Piagetian concept of cooperation in equality among the members of (...)

    A Measurement Model for Ethical Competence in Business.Iordanis Kavathatzopoulos & Georgios Rigas - 2006 - Journal of Business Ethics Education 3:55-74.
    Ethical Competence Questionnaire-Working Life and Business (ECQ-WLB) is an effort to build an instrument that measures ethical competence in business as a psychological problem-solving and decision-making skill. The questionnaire is constructed in a way that aims to avoid connection to any particular moral philosophical theory. Its theoretical base is the autonomy hypothesis of Piaget. Autonomous reasoning as measured by the questionnaire correlated positively to the level of organizational hierarchy. ECQ-WLB demonstrated satisfying psychometricproperties and reasonable reliability properties. A confirmatory factor analysis (...)

    Robots, Ethics and Language.Ingrid Björk & Iordanis Kavathatzopoulos - 2015 - Acm Sigcas Computers and Society 45 (3):270-273.
    Following the classical philosophical definition of ethics and the psychological research on problem solving and decision making, the issue of ethics becomes concrete and opens up the way for the creation of IT systems that can support handling of moral problems. Also in a sense that is similar to the way humans handle their moral problems. The processes of communicating information and receiving instructions are linguistic by nature. Moreover, autonomous and heteronomous ethical thinking is expressed by way of language use. (...)

    Ethical Competence and Social Responsibility in Scientific Research Using ICT Tools.Ryoko Asai & Iordanis Kavathatzopoulos - 2015 - Acm Sigcas Computers and Society 45 (3):345-347.
    This study explores how to improve and support researchers' ethical competence in scientific research and how to conduct research ethically, especially in research activities using Information and Communication Technology. Refining research ethics relating to ICT is unavoidable in the highly technological society of today, for example big data is used in different scientific research activities, and systems which support our daily lives are constructed based on the existing systems. In other words, technology reproduces technology itself. And almost all research activities (...)

    Judging the Complexity of Privacy, Openness and Loyalty Issues.Iordanis Kavathatzopoulos & Ryoko Asai - 2015 - Acm Sigcas Computers and Society 45 (3):416-419.
    Privacy protection and whistle-blowing are controversial issues. Privacy has to be protected but it hinders access to correct information. Whistle-blowing is necessary for correct decision-making, neutralizing wrong beliefs and preventing crime but it may destabilize groups, institutions and societies, and cause conflicts. The question investigated here was whether people judging the controversial issues of privacy and whistle-blowing take a moralistic or a philosophical approach. The hypothesis was that homogeneous responses point to a philosophical approach whereas responses correlated with cultural background (...)
