The study is set in an ethical background that is found in the lack of ethical decision-
making in a business environment. The ethical implications of some decisions made in a
business background impose negatively on the operations of a business or organization.
Furthermore, the effect of the decisions made with no regard to ethics in a business setting
affects the performance of shareholders in the environment greatly. The situation in the current
business world holds true to the statements made in the background of the study. More and
more businesses and organizations have turned to ill-motivated methods in an effort of
maximizing output against the input made. It is commonplace for business in the current age of
to make more profit with no regard to the implications of the way the profit was being created.
This makes a good illustration of the impact of the unethical way of conducting business
operations can have on the business world.
The world of business is now so much bent on the benefits of short-term profit.
Consequently, the world of business has also gave a blind eye to the fact that trust has been
eroded thus giving way to the unacceptable way of conducting business transactions in an
unethical manner. The trust aspect in business has been eroded to a point that it has an
irreversible impact on the organization. The problem statement of the doctoral study clearly

states the relationship between short-term profit and the impact of the unethical means of
getting the profit has quite an implication on the level of trust of shareholders (Saunders et al.,
2012). However, the certainty of the problem arises from the characteristics of conduct ethical
definition in the context of the stakeholder’s interest.
The main purpose of the doctoral study was to define the unique attributes of the
unethical conduct of the decision-making a process of the business activities adequately. The
implications of the decision-making process were evident on the stakeholder’s level of trust in
the organization. The purpose statement regarded the explicit relationship between these two
entities of the modern age of business operations. The situation in the business environment has
become so much bent in short term profit that it has become the basis on which most business
transactions are built on. The research design was formulated in such a way that it focused on
the significance of the current influence that ethical considerations have in the modern world of
business. Seeing that most businesses currently think little of the ethical considerations of
decisions making and think highly of the short-term profit made from the transactions.
The research question focused on the main point of the study. The main research
question being the focus put on the qualitative design of the research part. The methodologies
used in the research or study proved to be effective on the type of demographics that was
considered. In the study, the focus was on a semi-structured interview format way of acquiring
sensitive data from the sample of people chosen. The chosen sample seemed to be conducive
for the type of research question at hand. Considering the relationship of the sample with the
organizations that had established ethics programs.
