BULL, Christopher and ADAM, Alison (2011). Virtue ethics and customer relationship management: towards a more holistic approach for the development of 'best practice'. Business Ethics: A European Review, 20 (2), 121-130.Full text not available from this repository.
This paper focuses much-needed attention on the ethical nature of customer relationship management (CRM) strategies in organisations. The research uses an in-depth case study to reflect on the design, implementation and use of ‘best practice’ associated with CRM. We argue that conventional CRM philosophy is based on a fairly narrow construct that fails to consider ethical issues appropriately. We highlight why ethical considerations are important when organisations use CRM and how a more holistic approach incorporating some of Alasdair MacIntyre’s ideas on virtue ethics could be relevant.
