Reflecting on the concepts learned in the course, select and research the case study you selected and prepare a PowerPoint presentation according to the instructions below. You may use the 2 citations provided as part of your research. It is expected you will use the course Lessons and eReserve required readings plus your own independent research of credible sources in support of this presentation. Your research must include peer-reviewed and scholarly sources. (See Grading Rubric.) You may use internet sources for factual information about your company, but these should be the minority of your research. Use Trefry Library, Google Scholar, and similar library sources.

Your Week 5 Assignment with your instructor feedback has started you on this project. Your presentation should include the following, organized in well-designed slides with accompanying Speaker’s Notes or Audio and/or video narrative. Further instructions for required content are also below:


1. Begin with Title and Agenda slides. Then introduce the company (e.g. name, type of business, its corporate structure);

2. Summarize the case study. What happened? Define and explain the core ethical dilemma confronting the company, with pertinent facts;

*this includes why it is an ethical issue;

*clearly define the dilemma; be clear as to the company’s situation and its ethical choices – the action the company chose to do and at least one other, different, choice it could have elected instead;

3. Identify, define, and explain the ethical framework you selected in Week 5 Assignment that supports, or is illustrated by, the decision the company made. In explaining the framework, include definition, theory, and an example of how it works in making a decision. How does the company’s decision and conduct illustrate this framework?

4. Identify, define, and explain the alternative ethical framework you selected in Assignment 5 that could have led to a different result for the company. Explain specifically how the company effectively could have employed this alternative framework. Include an example of how it works in making a decision.

5. Identify at least one legal issue the company faced or could have faced as a result of its decision. Examples from your studies in the course are: contract disputes; tort claims; violation of a civil or criminal statute or regulation (which you must identify specifically); civil rights; employment issue; whistleblowing. It must be a different issue from the main laws and regulations involved in the case study violations.

6. Recommend: What is a take-away from this case study for exercise of corporate social responsibility (CSR) in management of business operations? Recommend and explain at least one CSR business practice for any business. In determining your recommendation consider the concepts we have studied this term. The company you have studied for this Assignment engaged in practices that ultimately touched or affected all aspects of its management. Your recommendation must be a specific practice for any business to apply.  It is not sufficient to say something like “do it differently,” or “be ethical” or “corporately responsible.”

7. References slide: Your references must be cited fully in APA7 format, except on your PPT slide it is not necessary to use a hanging indent or double space the citations. More than 7 sources are required for exemplary level of the grading rubric.  At least 7 sources are required for the Accomplished level of the rubric. Please see the rubric’s requirement for including scholarly and/or peer-reviewed sources.

What Peer-reviewed and Scholarly Mean

8.  Overall: Review the Grading Rubric for an understanding of all grading criteria.
