Talking the Walk Series

Each month ECI creates a new case study for our Talking the Walk series.

Organizational and Fellows Members of ECI, are provided a new case study as part of their membership. The topics pertain to issues in:

  • ethics;
  • compliance;
  • leadership;
  • managing up;
  • working as a team;
  • and more!

Although almost every ethics and compliance program has its “own way”, ECI has developed some guiding principles that apply to every program. ECI’s case studies are stories designed to help highlight these principles and how to apply them.

These stories are realistic, complex, and filled with contextually rich situations that often involve a dilemma, conflict, or problem that one or more of the characters in the case must negotiate. Because of this complexity, ECI provides a Leader’s Guide specifically designed to help you engage your team and allow them to learn from the case study. Each Leader’s Guide includes questions for discussion and some related statistics from ECI research.

How you use case studies will depend on you, but we hope you will think of these as a regular opportunity for the professional development of your team.

Case studies

Sample Case: WHO CARES?

I was honored when they asked me to take the lead on the integrity ambassadors initiative, Eva thinks to herself. Especially since it is going to be our “flagship initiative” as Jamal, our CECO and my boss’s boss, had referred to it when he gave Jamal the assignment.  I can’t believe how nervous and excited I was to hit “Send,” releasing my work into the world—or at least our full team—for their review. I hope they like it. I am afraid that it won’t. Instead of feedback, I am sure that this will fall in line with what always happens around here: nothing. Crickets. All that time, work, effort, and not a word from anyone. They clearly don’t care. Why do I?  Download Sample Case.
