BARNARD, Antoni; SCHURINK, Willem  e  DE BEER, Mariè. A conceptual framework of integrity. SA j. ind. Psychol. [online]. 2008, vol.34, n.2, pp.40-49. ISSN 2071-0763.

This article reports on the findings of a qualitative study in which the construction of integrity of some business leaders was explored. Data were gathered through ten in-depth interviews with six South African business leaders commended to be champions of integrity. A grounded-theory approach to the data analysis elicited five themes. These themes and their interrelatedness are discussed in this article and a conceptual framework of integrity is proposed. Integrity is conceptualised as a multifaceted and dynamic construct based on a moral foundation and inner drive that is managed by cognitive and affective processes manifesting various integrity-related behaviours.

Palavras-chave : integrity; integrity assessment; qualitative research; grounded theory; business ethics.
