Executive Summary

This paper argues for a model of a corruption constraint on organizational growth and development in the form of a business ethics glass ceiling. Although the problem of corruption's negative impact on economic growth is well documented, this paper's contribution is to propose a cohesive model to show how corruption combines with other influences such as weak corporate governance to act as a serious constraint on the business growth of local firms. This previously unidentified barrier to business success is marked by corruption and the model particularly applies to small and medium-sized and family businesses in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).
