Abstract:

This SRP shows that values and ethics are essential to leadership and that good leadership is the foundation of a successful organization. Peoples values drive the development of their ethical conduct and thereby play a major role in their leadership ability. Studies of successful organizations indicate values, ethics, and leadership play major roles in organizational performance and are the focal point of successful organizations. This SRP looks at the Armys position on values and ethical behavior. It looks at the commitment made by military leaders to totally live by, uphold, and enforce Army values. This SRP compares current Army values with those implied by Wal-Mart, the largest retailer in the world, in its ten established rules for building a successful business. It shows how organizational failure can occur when leaders fail to observe and adhere to good values.
