Strategic leadership

This chapter discusses some key strategic leadership issues (such as privacy and fake news) facing Facebook leaders Sheryl Sandberg and Mark Zuckerberg. Consider other firms mentioned in the chapter such as Amazon, PepsiCo, Uber, VW, and Starbucks. What social and ethical issues do the leaders of these firms face today? Choose a firm or industry and explore the relevant controversial issues it faces. How should strategic leaders address the major issues you have identified?

The purpose of this assignment is to help students understand how business strategy can be used in addressing social, political, economic, environmental, ethical, legal, regulatory, cultural, and other important issues that businesses face today. Students will learn about some of these issues by exploring them through case studies from different industries. They will also examine their own personal values and beliefs regarding these issues as they relate to themselves and those around them. Finally, students will develop an understanding of what makes for effective leadership in such situations. This course provides opportunities for students to apply concepts learned throughout the semester to real-life problems facing companies. It requires students to think critically about complex issues and make decisions based on sound reasoning and evidence. In addition, students are required to write essays and participate in class discussions.
