More and more organizations formulate a code of conduct to stimulate responsible action of people within the organization. Usually much time and energy is spent fixing the content of the code. Then there is the challenge of implementing and maintaining the code. This is a tricky process in which too many organizations get stuck. The code then turns into nothing but the notorious "paper in the drawer", so that the purpose of a responsible organization is not achieved. The challenge here is to utilize the awakening and dynamics that have originated with the formulation of the code to procure a continuous process of reflection on central values and standards. This paper presents an assessment method that can support this process.
