Best Practice Report: Leadership: Legal and Ethical Behaviour

This is our second Best Practice Report of the Business Excellence Series consisting of more than 30 reports. Each report focuses on a criteria item of internationally recognised Business Excellence Models. Together all the reports will provide a blueprint of how to become a world-class organisation. The second report of six on leadership provides best practices on “Legal and Ethical Behaviour”.

There are two types of compliance when it comes to behaviour within an organisation: legal and ethical. Legal compliance is about following the law, rules, and regulations, while ethics means doing what is right and behaving with integrity. It is important to note that you can be legally compliant and yet unethical.

Leadership System prepares a new generation of leaders

The Leadership System at Alamo Colleges District (ACD), a network of five US community colleges and Baldrige Award winner, was seen as a cycle of establishing goals, building trust, working toward a cause, and preparing a new generation. As part of this philosophy of education, ACD embraced the mantra “we have a leader in every seat” in regard to students, while also providing a leader in every classroom and office through high-performing faculty and staff members. Putting students first, practising principle-centred leadership, and achieving performance excellence were ACD’s three overarching priorities, defined as The Alamo Way. ACD lived the leadership cycle through its mission, vision, values and culture and sought to empower each and every one of its distinct communities, in line with the mission of “empowering our diverse communities for success.”.


Competency-based education speeds up learning

This paper addresses a critical aspect of the Fourth Industrial Revolution: understanding the skills of the future and how new models of learning must be embraced to address the challenges exposed with existing systems of learning. One method of flexible programme design discussed is competency-based education (CBE), an effective method to allow individuals with a base layer of knowledge to rapidly proceed through a programme where they have relevant skills and spend more time learning those skills they do not have. The Sinclair Community College in the US transitioned some of its Computer Information Systems programmes into a CBE model which allowed individuals who had IT skills to move quickly through the programme. In the first three years, Sinclair reported that CBE students completed degree programmes in an average of just four terms, 35% faster than non-CBE students. In addition, graduation rates for CBE students were double that of non-CBE students over the three-year period of Sinclair’s first CBE program offerings.”
