1.
The routine type of reinforcement schedules that random drug testing represent is the variable
interval type. This type of schedule is done randomly and unexpected. steroids was "as good as
any in professional sports." The policy Random drug testing. The NFL and NBA, are promising to
improve their drug-testing policies as well . . But here's the problem: The same system that
punishes those who take performance-enhancing drugs may also reinforce such behavior.Major
League Baseball appears to be genuinely interested in eliminating the use of steroids in
professional baseball, but it has yet to implement a stricter policy.

It is typically effective because athletes are unaware of when these tests will be taken place.
Therefore, athletes are unprepared. This is unlike a fixed variable reinforcement schedule.
Athletes have a fixed time of when the tests will be scheduled so they can prepare and make sure
their systems are clean before the test takes place.

2.

An example of a behavior in a typical organization that supervisors reward but may


actually be detrimental to others or to the organization as a whole is baseball
players taking steroids. When baseball players take steroids to enhance their
performance abilities, they are misleading their managers and their fans. Initially, it
may be rewarding because everyone involved gains from the profitability, i.e.
revenue from increased game attendance, sports merchandise, increased popularity
and success. But in the end, when it is discovered that the baseball player achieved
recognition with the aid of steroids he destroys the teams reputation and the loyalty
the fans had for the team. As a manager, in order to avoid this quandary, if I was
made aware of someone using steroids, I would do a random drug testing as soon as
possible instead having the whole team suffer for that one insubordinate team
player.

3.

AS the commissioner of baseball, there are several steps that I would take to try to reduce the use
of steroids in baseball. First of all, I would reinforce to all the athletes that if someone is caught
using steroids they will be taken off the team.
Second, I would continue to do random drug testing. Punishment is not likely to be the most
effective deterrent. This will only cause athletes to stop playing and taking steroids for a certain
period of time. But it will not teach them that they should not use it again.
It is also necessary to put these values in the grass root levels of the young players so they don’t get
tempted to go that way.
4.

No, it is not ever “okay” to allow potentially unethical behaviors, which on the surface may
benefit organizations to persist. As on the long run it will do more harm than good.
For example, if a baseball player is taking steroids, doing exceptionally well on the team and if
the team is aware he is taking steroids, even though the team will not do well without this player
they should ban that player from the team. It is the right thing to do. Even though the player is
causing harm to the team, the player is causing even more harm to himself. If the player does get
caught doing steroids, it may be publicized and it will give the fans a bad perception of the team.
