ABSTRACT:
A model of ethical technology management is presented that assumes that elites who make the system design and development decisions should minimize the risks to stakeholders rather than maximize gains for their organizations. Because of the unsettled state in ethical theory, a familiar substantive Social, Economic, Environmental, and Rights value set, or "SEER" ethic, is presented. A technology life cycle is introduced to facilitate foresight of negative SEER effects of innovations. In order to enable SEER issues associated with such effects to be resolved ethically, a cognate issue life cycle is proposed. The problem of increased front end load delays and costs that results because of ongoing system redesign and stakeholder discussions is found to be preferable to high "rear end load" crisis costs, such as those of the Ford Pinto, Exxon Valdez, Dalkon IUD Shield, and Union Carbide Bhopal plant. Improved returns on the capital investments involved are promised by the model. .
