Assignment #4 (Week 6): Ethical News Story and Video
GOAL: Create a four-six minute video news story presentation, accompanied by a 500-600 word written script/text of the video news story (with minimum three citations/references) that gives an analysis of a recent ethics scandal, corporate social responsibility scandal, or environment sustainability scandal. Be sure that your presentation makes a definitive statement connecting strategic planning to ethical, moral, social responsibility of organizations.

Instructions: PART ONE—Write 500-600 word paper that is written as a news story, and give an analysis of a recent (last three years) management scandal involving ethics, corporate social responsibility, or environment sustainability. Connect the news story you present with the need for ethics and social responsibility in strategic planning. How could a more effective strategic plan affect the issue(s) included in the news story? NOTE: This paper will not be examined for APA compliance, but will be checked for appropriate source verification. Therefore, show your sources clearly (using citations is the most effective way to link sources with references). The writing should contain a minimum of three scholarly citations/references beyond your textbook (use the APUS Online Library as resource). A title page and references page are required, but APA will not formally be graded.
