Assignment 2: Discussion—Business as an Agent of World Benefit
Access the World Inquiry’s Innovation Bank Web site from this module’s readings. Then, read at least five mini case studies where companies made money by serving societal needs.
On the basis of the cases that you read, answer the following question:
- Is the business as an agent of world benefit (BAWB) an academic fad or a change in business principles? Why?
In a minimum of 300 words, post your responses using critical thinking and analysis.
- By Monday, January 30, 2017, post your responses to this Discussion Area. Support your assumptions by citing the source material used for this discussion in APA format.
- Through Wednesday, February 1, 2017, respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts. While responding, be sure to share your thoughts appropriately whether in agreement or disagreement. Provide substantive comments by contributing new, relevant information or quotes from course readings, websites, or other sources; by building on the remarks or questions of others; or by sharing practical examples of key concepts from your experiences—professional or personal.
Write your initial response in 300–500 words. Your
response should be thorough and address all components of the
discussion question in detail, include citations of all sources, where
needed, according to the APA Style, and demonstrate accurate spelling,
grammar, and punctuation
