- A value or ethical tension is a conflict that can be traced to a disagreement regarding the importance of at least two competing values or ethical assumptions. This could be an explicit moral disagreement, such as Bob thinks it’s wrong to sell product X and Joe thinks it is perfectly okay to sell product X, but these tensions can also be hidden in disagreements that don’t look like they have anything to do with values or ethics.
