Assessment Information

This assignment is an individual assignment.

Your report should follow the below structure:

Introduction – 200 words

Discussion and critical evaluation – 600 words

Conclusion and recommendations – 200 words

Critical discussion of the business ethics

To perform this task you should first analyse the industry or sector environment to understand the competitive pressures organisations are exposed to. To aid your analysis, you should then consider organisation(s) that gained attention through ethical misconduct. After examining their organisational structure and culture, a critical evaluation of the organisations’ ethical behaviour in the context of strategic decision making might follow. It is expected that you evaluate to what extent organisations in that particular industry have the freedom to proactively adopt ethical practices.

Note: You will be expected to use insight obtained from the core textbook, relevant additional reading from the lectures (available on Aula) and your own research using the University’s library facilities (locate.coventry.ac.uk).
