Forces and Public Issues in Industry

Forces and Public Issues in Industry Introduction In this module, we explored business, government, and society as an interrelated system made up of primary and secondary stakeholders. In additional to stakeholder forces, we also introduced some of the broader forces influencing this system. In this assignment, you will demonstrate your understanding of stakeholder relationships and influences (including that of government and the media) on industry and public issues. This assignment will comprise 15% of your total course mark. Part A is a case study involving an important public issue regarding the environment, and Part B is a report on public issues relating to the tobacco industry. Each question carries the marks as stated for a total of 100 marks. Part A: Instructions Read Discussion Case: Coca-Cola’s Water Neutrality Initiative on pages 43 and 44 of your textbook. Question 1: Describe the “performance-expectations gap” evident in this case – what were the stakeholders’ concerns and how did their expectations differ from the company’s performance? (15 marks) Question 2: If you applied the strategic radar screens model to this case, which of the eight environments would be most significant? Support your position. (5 marks) Question 3: In your opinion, did TCCC respond appropriately to this public issue? Why or why not. (10 marks) Part B: Instructions The tobacco industry is constantly in the media.

Describe the biases, perspectives, or experiences that may influence your position on this public issue. (10 marks) Note There is no right or wrong perspective, but it is important to recognize your own stakeholder positions and how they influence your perspectives. Section 3.
