The purpose of this assignment is for you to practice reviewing articles that contribute to the industry. The authors of these articles are researchers and professionals that have shared or experimented with ideas that demonstrate potential to improve the industry. As a professional in the industry, it is in your best interest to review the literature and trends. This provides you with the opportunity to read about what was successful and how they accomplished it. Plus, it allows you to analyze what was unsuccessful, how you can improve it, or at least avoid repeating the mistakes of others. These skills are vital when contributing to research papers and other scholarly writing. If you have not already, hopefully you will contribute to the industry by publishing an article and sharing with your community of peers.

Who were the stakeholders in the article?
What was the firm’s corporate reputation?
How could the topic of this article apply to your personal or professional life?

What conclusions can you draw about the ethical issues facing business leaders?
Your first paragraph should briefly introduce and summarize the article while identifying the author’s main points. Your Article Review should be at least 500 words in length, double-spaced, 12pt Times New Roman font, with references and direct quotes in APA format. Title page, abstract, and running head are not required.
