Hartman or Desjardins is designed to prepare the student to apply an ethical decision-making model, not only in this ethics course but throughout her or his business discipline. This model teaches students ethical skills, vocabulary and tools to apply in everyday business decisions and throughout their business courses. The authors' goal is to engage the student by focusing on cases and business scenarios that students already find interesting. The goal for the second edition remains the same as for the first, to provide "a comprehensive yet accessible introduction to the ethical issues arising in business". Hartman and Desjardins have retained the focus on decision-making as well as the emphasis on both personal and policy-level perspectives on ethics. This edition continues to provide pedagogical support throughout the text. The most noticeable changes involve a thorough updating of distinct items such as Reality Checks, Decision Points and readings to reflect new cases, examples and data.
