- Identify the company you selected;
- explain the company and its industry;
- provide the factual background of the problem; and
- clearly state the ethical dilemma presented by the situation. If you see more than one dilemma in play choose the main or overriding dilemma you see. Your presentation should focus on one. dilemma. In a dilemma, the company had two choices: the act it chose and an alternative it did not do.
3. Identify and define at least one ethical framework that the company apparently employed in making its decision in that ethical dilemma. Note — Not "Should have used."

7. Explain something business leadership in any company can learn from this situation. This is not just what the company you are discussing did or should do.
8. Finish with a conclusion that wraps up the key points.
9. Include a Reference slide with at least seven (7) credible sources listed in APA format. (NOTE: Sources must be cited in slides and speaker's notes for direct quotes, specific facts and graphics, same as in a paper, per APA format.
