Badracco, a Pro­fes­sor of Busi­ness Ethics at Har­vard, has put for­ward the smart ques­tions which form the ba­sis of ef­fec­tive de­ci­sion mak­ing. In­ter­est­ingly, the book is not about the ca­sual daily rou­tine de­ci­sions, rather the crit­i­cal de­ci­sions one come across in busi­ness man­age­ment. De­cid­ing one’s re­sponse over an op­por­tu­nity at work solely based on race or gender, launch­ing an ex­tremely con­tro­ver­sial prod­uct or com­ing a across a lag­ging be­hind em­ployee who is go­ing through per­sonal dis­or­ders. The pro­fes­sional de­ci­sions turn harder when they have a morally sen­si­tive as­pect at­tached. Badracco has pre­sented an un­ortho­dox and prac­ti­cal ap­proach of reach­ing such de­ci­sions. The mes­sages are re­fresh­ing as they are away from the tra­di­tional feel­good busi­ness ethics
