Reference: IMD-3-1577

Connect-U2, a mid-sized telecom company, faces a situation where a whistleblower reported a case of bribery. There is, however, substantial ambiguity on what actually happened. Connect-U2 realizes that its Code of Conduct shows limitations both, in its wording, but also in its implementation in an internationally dispersed market arena. The case depicts dilemmas inherent in the use of codes of conduct, a crucial means to ensure compliance.
