you have explored in this course, ongoing challenges in the global
business environment are mostly attributed to unethical business
practices, failure to embrace technology advancements, and stiff
competition among businesses. Imagine that you have been appointed as
the Chief Compliance Officer of a Fortune 500 company of your choice and
must prepare a presentation for your suppliers regarding your Supplier
Code of Conduct to deliver via a web meeting.

This assignment has two parts. For the first part, you are to create a
five to seven (5–7) minute dynamic video on your company’s Code of
Conduct. You may use any type of recording device you have to create
this video—smartphone, laptop, webcam, or other type of video recorder. The specific points to cover for this video are listed below.

As an alternative to the video, you may submit a four to six (4–6)
page paper that details what you would say in such a presentation
following the same prompts as the video assignment below.

For the second part of the assignment, you will create a presentation using PowerPoint
(or other equivalent software) summarizing the important changes and
explanations regarding the code of conduct that you communicated in your
video/paper presentation to email to the suppliers after the meeting
for future reference. The specific points to cover are listed below.

You must submit both parts of the assignment to receive full credit.

Note: If you are using a tablet or smartphone
you will need to email the video file to yourself, then save it to a
computer in order to upload to Blackboard. You may want to upload your
video to a file sharing service, such as Dropbox, if your email will not let you send a large video file. Dropbox is accessible from all smartphones and tablets from the Dropbox app.

Once you are ready to upload your video to Blackboard, view the Kaltura video tutorial found in your online course shell (Week 9). Please use the following naming convention in the popup window for your video once it is finished uploading:

Part 1: Video Presentation OR Paper

minutes OR write a four to six (4–6) page paper in which you:

  1. List specific changes that your company has made to its Code of
    Conduct in recent years. Provide at least one (1) example of each
  2. Explain the identified changes to the suppliers in such a way that
    they will understand the standards that your company requires in order
    to maintain their relationship with the company.

If you choose the written paper instead of the video, your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

  • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with
    one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA
    or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional

Specific Library Resources to help you get started

The Strayer University Library is accessible at

A general introduction to the Strayer Library is available in your course shell on the left-hand menu under Research-Library.

  • Introductory Search – Use the home page’s search box to keyword search many, but not all, databases.
  • Targeted Search – Scroll to the bottom of the page for an A to Z
    listing of all databases. Float over each link to see a description of
    the database and click to load that particular database’s custom search
    page. Custom search pages include both basic and advanced search

These databases are only partially searchable through the general search bar. You will have to search them individually to find resources for your paper.

  • Nexis Uni – This contains legal information and would be useful to search for court cases in which your company has been involved.
  • Video Explaining Nexis Uni
  • Mergent Online – This has company info on both public and private companies. Fortune 500 can be public or private. Mergent
    is known for financial and accounting info, but also has qualitative
    information too. They offer news feeds, country reports on business
    environments, industry-wide reporting, company reports, and Annual Reports—the
    middle 3 are unique to this database. Starting with looking at a
    company’s annual report would be very useful for this assignment.
    Industry reports would also be useful to see if your company is involved
    in any industry-wide initiatives or is notable in its industry in any
    way (could be good or bad.)
  • Instructional Videos on each of the databases:

American City Business Journals – This is probably
the most fun way to read business news by metro area. They have over 35
journals based around US cities. Look up the metro area your company is
associated with, go to ACBJ, then choose the applicable city, and search
for news articles.

Research Starters are like the academic version of Wikipedia.
Search on a topic to get an overview with links to other information
within that topic. It will help you get ideas for keywords for your own
searches and what you need to know in order to successfully write your

appear in a feature box above the results list when using the general
