Week 11 Scenario – Ethics – International Construction
Prof. Blagoev
Scenario:
A good practice in managing international construction projects is to review your company’s values and overall ethics program to determine if they agree with the ways of doing business in the host country.
Assume you are an executive at one of the biggest Canadian General Contractors, and your company is able to bid on a project for the Qatar 2022 Soccer World Cup. Review the Qatar’s Workers Slaves article and use evidence from it or other sources to explain if there is an ethical way for you to execute the project or if perhaps you should look for projects in countries with more ethical climate and why. Remember here that any changes you want to make will be limited by the process that the local government has set up and likely you won’t be able to change. Perhaps you can look instead for projects in the countries where the migrant workers in Qatar come from.
