User involvement in information system development, as well as in digital innovation processes, is viewed as a key element for success. By introducing users in IS projects, ethical consideration is needed. Even though ethical theoretical frameworks are available in the IS (and other) spheres; cheap and fast methods and tools for applying ethics efficiently and effectively in everyday design and development work remain scarce. This paper presents a suggested heuristics-based tool that bears the promise of quick integration, and effective and efficient application of ethics in user-involved IS projects.
