Blind Spots Review by Jeff Kaplan

Although we plan to add a full-length book summary in the near future, lawyer and ethical systems researcher Jeff Kaplan has already written a review of Blind Spots (homepageamazonB&Npublic library), by Max Bazerman and Ann Tenbrunsel.

As Kaplan points out, Blind Spots has huge implications for corporate compliance and ethics programs, especially with regard to the phenomenon of "bounded ethicality" that leads even good people to engage in conduct that contradicts their own sincerely held ethical tenets. Blind Spots provides a foundation in behavioral ethics for numerous C&E reforms, and senior managers would do well to learn the lessons that the book has to offer.
