A great source, but not the only source, for this type of information is the corporate website for the company and their annual report.  This will provide you with a great deal of information and numerous infographics. You must provide an in-text citation for every paragraph. Do not copy and paste the entire Annual Report into your Research Report. However, include a summary of relevant sections.    3                      Brand: Background and Analysis In this section, gather information about the brand that is specific to the retail operations, not the corporation. However, information similar-to that mentioned above is also relevant to the specific leadership operations you researched in Stage 1.

Unsafe Products How would you classify companies selling an unsafe car? a)      ethical and legal? b)      ethical, but illegal? c)      unethical, but legal? d)      unethical and illegal? Suppose a car manufactured by the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi alliance will explode when rear-ended and the driver and passengers will be burned alive.  A cost benefit analysis is done which determines the company can save $100 million if they do not recall the cars and instead give money to the families of those who were killed when the car exploded.   What is the ethical dilemma? Explain fully your point of view. Discuss fully if it is ethical or unethical sell defective products and your rationale. Listed below are some relevant ethical concepts that can help your reach a point of view.  You can provide an summary of a relevant ethical concept as part of your response.   Utilitarianism Moral Idealism Personal benefit: acknowledge the extent to which an action produces beneficial consequences for the individual in question. Social benefit: acknowledge the extent to which an action produces beneficial consequences for society. Principle of benevolence: help those in need. Principle of paternalism: assist others in pursuing their best interests when they cannot do so themselves. Principle of harm: do not harm others. Principle of honesty: do not deceive others.

Executive Actions Based on the case study and the YouTube videos I posted, we know the Renault executive is accused of doing a variety of things that some consider controversial, unethical, and even illegal. For example, having the company pay for a lavish event on his birthday. Describe two such actions he took and explain fully why you feel his actions were either: a)      ethical and legal? b)      ethical, but illegal? c)      unethical, but legal? d)      unethical and illegal? Imagine you are a consultant… what are your concerns and what actions would you recommend to the Renault executive team and Board of Director? YouTube Videos: · · · · · · ·
