Create A Code Of Ethics And Business Conduct For New Venture

Create an original code of ethics and business conduct for a new business venture based upon key ethical principles and professional issues. Include industry considerations that may impact the new venture operations.

This assessment examines entrepreneurial leadership characteristics and the ethical aspects of entrepreneurship; it also explores building the right team for your new venture. You will create an original code of ethics and business conduct for the new venture you plan to start and operate. This code of ethics and business conduct will include the ethical principles and professional issues for your leadership approach to embody and support and for all your employees to emulate and follow.

Creativity and innovation are essential leadership characteristics for an entrepreneur. Creativity is the ability to develop new ideas and new ways of solving problems. Innovation is the ability to apply creative solutions to problems and opportunities. As management legend Peter Drucker once said “Innovation is the specific instrument of entrepreneurs, the act that endows resources with a new capacity to create wealth.” Scarborough & Cornwall, 2019,, n.d.). Creative thinking provides the foundation for new ideas that lead to innovation and new ways of doing things.

With creativity and innovation comes ethical and moral responsibilities for the entrepreneur. Establishing and maintaining ethical standards is essential for creating a healthy and ethical organizational culture that guides management and employees’ behavior and determines how your new venture conducts its business and daily operations. These behaviors have an impact on how your new venture views its social, environmental, employee, and customer responsibilities, and will influence the choices you make as you build the right the team for your new venture.

Create a 5–6 page new Code of Ethics and Business Conduct for the new venture you plan to start and manage successfully. Consider key ethical principles and professional issues that you want your leadership approach to embody and support and all of your employees to emulate and follow. Also examine and address particular industry considerations that could impact the new venture operations (cover in the relevant sections).

  • Is there a possibility of plagiarism in my completed order?

    We complete each paper from scratch, and in order to make you feel safe regarding its authenticity, we check our content for plagiarism before its delivery. To do that, we use our in-house software, which can find not only copy-pasted fragments, but even paraphrased pieces of text. Unlike popular plagiarism-detection systems, which are used by most universities (e.g., we do not report to any public databases—therefore, such checking is safe.

    We provide a plagiarism-free guarantee that ensures your paper is always checked for its uniqueness. Please note that it is possible for a writing company to guarantee an absence of plagiarism against open Internet sources and a number of certain databases, but there is no technology (except for itself) that could guarantee no plagiarism against all sources that are indexed by turnitin. If you want to be 100% sure of your paper’s originality, we suggest you check it using the WriteCheck service from and send us the report.

    Yes. You can have a free revision during 7 days after you’ve approved the paper. To apply for a free revision, please press the revision request button on your personal order page. You can also apply for another writer to make a revision of your paper, but in such a case, we can ask you for an additional 12 hours, as we might need some time to find another writer to work on your order.

  • How will I receive a completed paper?

If there happen to be any problems with downloading your paper, please contact our support team.
