TrainingBriefs® Gathering Competitive Information
Ethics concern an individual's moral judgments about right and wrong. Decisions taken within an organization may be made by individuals or groups, but whoever makes them will be influenced by the culture of the company. One area of concern within many organizations is the gathering of competitive information. Collecting information about your competitors makes good business sense. However, you must do so in an ethical and reasonable way. Unfortunately, this doesn’t always happen. If you ever find yourself in this situation, it helps to know how to act.
