Abstract: Ethical performance aims to analyze the different dimensions of an ethical performance framework in a global context, then illustrate how public or private organizations measure ethical performance. In order to achieve this goal, a number of performance-enhancing factors are needed, which however are many, complex, interrelated, and sometimes difficult to measure. Trends show an increase in performance regimes, audit, and inspection for public agencies along with numerous attempts to measure ethical performance.

Keywords: ethics, performance, tools, audit, organization, culture.
