The final project for this course is the creation of a case
study analysis and strategy proposal.
Social responsibility is an ethical philosophy that suggests
an individual or a group of individuals, such as an organization, has an
obligation to act for the benefit of society at large. Corporations in any
industry have experienced change in corporate social responsibility (CSR) due
to both internal (employee) and external (customer, regulatory agencies,
environmental) influences. These influences require leaders to better educate
themselves and the organization on their strategy in regard to CSR.
The purpose of this project is to analyze and critique an
organization based on what is expected of a corporate strategy in regard to
social responsibility.
The project is divided into two milestones, which will be
submitted at various points throughout the course to scaffold learning and
ensure quality final submissions. These milestones will be submitted in Modules
Two and Four. The final product will be submitted in Module Seven.
In this assignment, you will demonstrate your mastery of the
following course outcomes:
• Critique social responsibility principles and concepts as
they relate to scholarly research, evidence, and real-world relevance • Analyze internal and external influences to
organizational operations as they relate to the effective application of social
responsibility • Analyze the potential
benefits and risks of the strategy planning of an organization for ensuring
organizational effectiveness • Develop
strategy plans that appropriately draw from modern principles of social
responsibility and are substantiated by evidence • Assess the ethical implications of
real-world issues and problems in corporate social responsibility from multiple
perspectives
Prompt For this project, you will analyze the case study ITC
LTD: Toward a Triple Bottom Line Performance. You will look at various aspects
of both the daily operations of the company as well as management strategies to
determine the impact they have on the social responsibility of the company. You
will examine the impact this has on the internal and external stakeholders of
the company, as social responsibility impacts them the most. Then, you will
devise a revised strategy plan that addresses any gaps and risks you have
identified in regard to social responsibility.

Specifically, the following critical elements must be
addressed:
I. Introduction: In this part of the project, you will
introduce the company present in the case study, describing the important
attributes of the company that should be considered when analyzing its consideration
of social responsibility. Describe the organization in the case study. In other
words, how is the organization described in the case study? What are its key
attributes? What are its strengths and weaknesses?
II. Analysis of
Social Responsibility: In this part of the project, you will begin your
analysis of the case study, examining how the strategy plan of the organization
in the case study considers social responsibility. a) Analyze the
organization’s strategy plan for compliance with the current acceptable
standards or norms relative to social responsibility today. b) Analyze the
organization’s strategy plan for any gaps in social responsibility that might
be potential risks to internal and external stakeholders. c) Predict the
potential positive and negative impacts to internal and external stakeholders
regarding social responsibility that would result from the strategy plan. In
other words, what might happen to the employees and/or people involved in the
company regarding social responsibility from this strategy plan? You could
consider both the present and future impacts. d) Critique the evolution of
strategy planning related to social responsibility within the organization. In
other words, what may have influenced the evolution of strategy planning
related to social responsibility unique to this organization? e) Explain how
this organization is or is not consistent with regard to social responsibility
when compared within its own industry and when compared to outside industries.
Be sure to justify your response.
III. Ethical Decision-Making: In this part of the project,
you will continue your analysis of the case study, examining how the strategy
plan of the organization considers ethics in decision-making processes. a) Analyze the organization’s strategy plan
for decision-making processes that it employs. In other words, based on the
strategy plan, how does the organization make decisions? b) Explain how aspects
of ethics were considered in the decision-making processes of the organization.
In other words, what were the ethical considerations related to social
responsibility in the decisions made by the organization? You could consider
the connection between ethics and organizational decision making and how ethics
influence those decisions. c) Analyze the organization’s strategy plan for any
gaps in the decision-making process that could be considered potential risks to
internal and external stakeholders.

IV. Critique the Organization: In this part of the project,
you will continue your case study analysis, critiquing the organization
regarding how it considers social responsibility and how its processes have
been influenced internally and externally.
a) Utilizing the information in the case study and your previous
analysis, determine the appropriate components for a strategic CSR plan for the
organization. b) Compare the components chosen pertaining to the organization
with other organizations with similar or different strategic components. c)
Explain how the organization’s internal and external influences have impacted
the strategy plan’s compliance with industry standards and common practice in
regards to social responsibility. d) Determine potential risks in the current
strategy plan and compare them with other relevant organizations (in particular,
the same industry) to determine if these risks are common or unique to the
organization.
V. Revised Strategy Plan: In this part of the project, you
will imagine you have assumed a leadership role within the organization. You
will utilize the case study and your previous analysis to develop a new
strategy plan for the organization addressing its social responsibility. a)
Develop a revised strategy plan for the organization, addressing any potential
risks or gaps regarding social responsibility previously identified in your
case study analysis.
b) Explain the
process regarding how the revised strategy plan was developed. Be sure to
describe why certain components were selected and how they are important to the
organization as related to social responsibility. c) Discuss how you considered
the influence of internal and external forces when developing your revised
strategy plan. In other words, how did you account for the internal and
external influences that affected the first strategy plan in the development of
your revised strategy plan? d) Explain how issues of ethics were considered
when developing the revised strategy plan. If issues of ethics did not need to
be considered or revised, explain why.
