- How will my decision affect others, including our customers, shareholders, employees and the community?
- How will my decision look to others? If your action is legal but can result in the appearance of wrongdoing, consider taking alternative steps.
- How would I feel if my decision were made public? Could the decision be honestly explained and defended?
- Should I contact my manager, my Human Resources department or the Prometric legal department regarding the action?
