The final project for this course will be the creation of a consulting report. The assessment will be a solution-based approach that will apply the elements of the
course to a case study. You will demonstrate levels of attentiveness and responsiveness that leaders of an organization should observe so as to enhance
relationships between an organization and its community. You will be tasked with applying leadership processes and theories in the development of solutions to
a case study. Additionally, this assessment will allow you to combine theory and practice and apply these concepts to a relevant contemporary situation.
Leaders rise above what is expected in order to be a model of excellence. A leader, therefore, is responsible to pursue excellence in both relationships and tasks.
This also means that a leader will try to benefit both internal and external stakeholders. This is the essence of responsibility: to lead others with integrity, holding
to an ethic that cares for people and the planet while maintaining profitability for the business.
Your final task for this course will be to research and evaluate a company and identify issues related to the way the company operates. You will then recommend
changes that need to occur in order for the company to demonstrate corporate responsibility in its relationships with internal and external stakeholders.
You will incorporate content and feedback from Milestones One, Two, and Three, adding the Conclusion and Executive Summary sections in the final submission.
The final submission should be a complete, polished artifact containing all of the critical elements of the final project. The project is divided into three
milestones, which will be submitted at various points throughout the course to scaffold learning and ensure quality final submissions. These milestones will be
submitted in Modules Three, Five, and Seven. Your final project will be in the form of a consulting report including an executive summary that will be submitted
in Module Nine.
This assessment addresses the following course outcomes:
? Propose alternative solutions to establish a culture of corporate responsibility including people, planet, and profit
? Evaluate the levels of attentiveness and responsiveness that leaders of an organization should embody to enhance relationships between the
organization and society
? Interpret the health of an organization through the lens of a triple bottom line of people, planet, and profits
? Devise a plan to strategically lead an organization to practice responsible corporate behavior for the purpose of developing optimal stakeholder
? Evaluate the impact of corporate policies and practices on internal and external stakeholders for leading an organization to operate responsibly
An executive of a large company has asked that you to consult with them to create a consulting report to help the company receive input on how to become
more responsible in three main areas of the companys operations; people, planet, and profit. You will need to do the research, design the consulting report, and
provide an executive summary.
Before you begin, choose one of the following companies to research and write your consulting report on. All of these companies have done well in some areas,
but have criticism in other areas of their operations:

? Wal-Mart Stores, Inc.
? Waste Management, Inc.

this area benefit the stakeholders? Consider providing some examples of companies that have made an effort to benefit the

corporate behavior? Consider the cost of the implementation of the changes versus the overall benefit of the changes.

these new policies might have on oppressed members of the community.

industry leader? Consider explaining why becoming an industry leader is important.
