Module 3-1 Milestone One

Module 3-1 Milestone One

Hello everyone,

I need help with the attached file.  It's a two-paper, that is meant to be submitted as one.  I've highlighted key parts inside the file.  Please let me know if you have any other questions.  Thanks so much in advance! 

Overview (company: Starbucks Coffee)

The final project for this course is the creation of a  consulting report. The assessment will be a solution-based approach that will apply the elements of the course to a case study. The student will demonstrate levels of attentiveness and responsiveness that leaders of an organization should observe so as to enhance relationships between an organization and its community. The students will be tasked with applying leadership processes and theories in the development of solutions to a case study. Additionally, this assessment will allow the students to combine theory and practice and apply these concepts to a relevant contemporary situation.

This assessment addresses the following course outcomes:

· Evaluate the levels of attentiveness and responsiveness that leaders of an organization should embody to enhance relationships between the organization and society

· Interpret the health of an organization through the lens of a triple bottom line of people, planet, and profits

· Evaluate the impact of corporate policies and practices on internal and external stakeholders for leading an organization to operate responsibly

You must submit the following  two papers as  one file for this milestone (details are given below):

1. Introduction: 3 to 4 paragraphs that introduce your chosen company

2. Analysis of Issues: a 1- to 2-page outline that analyzes the issues of your chosen company

Before you begin, choose a major company to research and write your consulting report on. When making the choice, consider the depth of information that’s available for research. (Smaller companies may not have sufficient data for you to research.) Also, consider choosing a company where you are an employee or have an existing relationship with some employees so that you can obtain internal perspectives in addition to research perspectives. However, make sure you have sufficient information available for research in your choice of company. In the perfect world, you would choose a company where you could possibly get an executive audience for your consulting report—showcasing the work you’ve done and perhaps putting it to work.


Submit a 3- to 4-paragraph paper, not including the cover page or references, introducing your chosen company. This information will be used as part of your final consulting report. The introduction should include the purpose and scope of your chosen company, including an overview of your company. The overview should include the following elements:

· History of the company through the lenses of people, the planet, and profit

· Commendable accomplishments and possible issues

· Short- and long-term impacts due to a lack of responsible behavior

Attach a 1- to 2-page paper outline of the Analysis of Issues of your chosen company; the outline can contain bullet points, listed information, or short phrases that indicate areas you will expand upon in the Milestone Two submission.
