Instructions
Group task
You will be allocated to a group of three students who, in module 5.1 (week 9) and module 5.2 (week 10) will prepare a short written scenario that describes one ethical or sustainability issue facing an organisation of your choice. A framework for writing the scenario will be provided in class, and available later as an online resource in Blackboard.

Individual task
You will then use the group scenario to prepare an individual report.
The scenario report will take the form of a business case, made to the senior management of the organisation, recommending how the issue should be dealt with. The report will employ either stakeholder theory or values management as an analytical tool.
