Assignment: Presentation of the CEO’s Position • Resource: Appendix C • Due Date: Day 7 [Individual forum] • Review the anonymous stakeholder presentations your instructor has posted. There is likely to be repetition among the presentations from the same group, so mentally synthesize the presentations into four positions, one for each group. You might find it helpful to take notes. • Complete the Stakeholder Analysis Table found in Appendix C based on your synthesis. • Write a 1,050- to 1,400-word paper in which you assume the role of Kardell’s CEO. As CEO, critically examine each stakeholder position in light of the facts of the case. • Consider the strengths and weaknesses of each stakeholder position, especially how their desires for action could impact the company’s profitability. Then, select a course of action from the following list: o Deny any link between the company and the sonox detected in the river and refuse to study the issue further. o Agree to continue collecting data and investigating the issue further without admitting the mill is the source of sonox. o Assume there is a link between the sonox and the company and take immediate steps to upgrade the plant to prevent future spillages.
