As the CEO of the diesel division of Volkswagen, how would you have responded when the situation became public? How would this response prevent future incidents?

Thread Prompt:

Rarely does one individual’s decision or action create an ethical  crisis entirely by itself. More often, someone’s unethical or illegal  idea is adopted by other members of the company, and the problem grows  within the organization until it erupts in headlines, bad publicity, and  sometimes criminal penalties. After the fact, the questions always  arise: How did that happen? Didn’t anyone know it was going on? Why  didn’t someone stop it?

Recently, Volkswagen found itself in just  such a position, when it was discovered that the software in the  company’s diesel vehicles had been programmed to provide false data to  regulators regarding the level of emissions produced by the cars.

In  his article “Volkswagen: Where Were the Lawyers?” Lippe (2015)  questions the role that several groups within the company played in the  scandal, most notably the company’s lawyers and engineers. See http://www.abajournal.com/legalrebels/article/volkswagen_where_were_the_lawyers/.

Review this situation from legal, spiritual, and ethical perspectives. Fully explain the following:

  1. As an employee or a manager in either the legal office or the  engineering department, how would you have prevented this incident?
  2. As the CEO of the diesel division of Volkswagen, how would you  have responded when the situation became public? How would this response  prevent future incidents?
