The influence of our coworkers and superiors along with our different values and beliefs has a huge impact on the way we as individuals make decisions. Some organizations encourage their employees to make ethical decisions while others promote immoral conduct. This paper examines the factors that influence ethical decision making and will also further discuss the impact that technology has as a stress inducer.
Migration to Australia over the past two hundred years, and particularly since 1945, has created the religious profile of Australian society. White settlement of Australia comprised migrants and convicts who were mainly Protestants and Catholics, with a small number of Jews. The post-second World War period brought greater religious diversity to Australian society. When Australia’s immigration policy was expanded to take in war refugees from East Europe and migrant labour to assist in post-war reconstruction, religious representations of Christian Orthodoxy and Judaism increased. In recent years, statistics indicate that accompanying the increase in migration from Asia and the Middle East is a corresponding increase in the representation of non-Christian religions in our society.

The widespread adoption of the technology would change several aspects of the new ball market. Analyzing form the Value Creation point of view, we can anticipate the following changes. Consumer benefit (B) will increase, by a limited amount, as the consumer will now be able to identify the degradation level of each ball. They will not have to rely on visual assessment of the ball which was highly unreliable. They will also be protected from degraded balls that are sold in the used balls market. However, it is debatable if the consumer base will be able to recognize this newly created value that adds quality to their game, since the perception is that the ball quality can be judged visually.
