Assignment 1: Managing Change Ethically
You work for Comus 9, a clothing company that has a hugely popular ready-to-wear line. Your company is thinking about a feasibility study on outsourcing its key manufacturing operations to Bangladesh, where cheap labor cost will give Comus 9 the margin to survive in the face of increasing competition. There is a possibility of downsizing the current workforce in Comus 9 to drive down its cost component. You have been asked to prepare an introductory report on the key ethical issues involved in the change process, which Comus 9 will initiate if it decides to outsource.
