This assessment allows students to develop writing skills in ethics and sustainability scenarios and to
explore the ways in which stakeholder theory and values management can be used by organisations,
as tools in addressing economic, commercial, social and environmental problems.
You will be allocated to a group of three students who, in module 5.1 (week 9) and module
5.2 (week 10) will prepare a short written scenario that describes one ethical or sustainability issue
facing an organisation of your choice. A framework for writing the scenario will be provided in class,
and available later as an online resource in Blackboard.

You will then use the group scenario to prepare an individual report.
The scenario report will take the form of a business case, made to the senior management of
the organisation, recommending how the issue should be dealt with. The report will employ
either stakeholder theory or values management as an analytical tool.

Each member of the group will review the contribution of other group members, to the task, using
the Peer Review Form. You can find this form in the corresponding Assessment folder in Blackboard.
The Peer Review Form focuses on the ways each group member behaves, in relation to ethics,
throughout the activity. You will have to use one Peer Review Form, per group member, and
collate these in a single document for submission. Your mark for this assessment will be based,
equally, on the review provided by your peers.
