This is researched and cited using APA citation methods. Give a history of the company; size, locations, revenues, competition, and any other facts you think are relevant to the issue.
Describe the current moral/ethical dilemma the company is facing.
Then, clarify the problem that you will be making recommendations to solve in the final section of this research project.
IDENTIFY TRIGGERING EVENT:
This is a recent occurrence that brought the issue to the public’s attention, putting the company in the spotlight and forcing them to reevaluate their current business practices. Some examples of triggers are: injury or death of a stakeholder, a lawsuit, or a news report. Cite any articles.
Describe the events leading up to the triggering event and what’s happened since then. Explain how various stakeholder groups have reacted to the issue and triggering event. Relevance and importance of the issue to the company must be clearly established. This will require some research, and you will want to stay current with the issue as the term progresses, so you know what stakeholders are involved, and how the company is responding.
This is the meat of this assignment. Write at least 6 long, well developed paragraphs for each: economic, cultural, moral, safety, and legal significance of your issue. In this section, you will discuss the actual or future potential fallout from this issue. Explore demographic trends related to this issue. Put the issue in context. Examining the significance will help you identify stakeholders as you think about who is currently involved, and who could be involved in the future. It will also help you to establish urgency as you think about how big of an impact this issue is (or potentially could be) if not addressed, which will be important when you consider the impact of your decisions in your final recommendations.
