About Your Signature Assignment 

Signature/Benchmark Assignments are designed to align with specific program student learning outcome(s) in your program. Program Student Learning Outcomes are broad statements that describe what students should know and be able to do upon completion of their degree. Signature/Benchmark Assignments are graded with a grading guide or an automated rubric that allows the University to collect data that can be aggregated across a location or college/school and used for course/program improvements. 

Purpose of Assignment 

The student will be applying those skills that he has mastered in this class to create a compliance plan for either his organization or an organization of his or her choosing. This plan will cover five critical areas: leadership, standards and controls, training and communication, risk assessment, and oversight.

Scenario: Your company’s board of directors is exploring expansion of your consulting business and in its due diligence it has asked that the compliance plan for your organization be redone.

Prepare a compliance plan (Part I) and presentation (Part II) regarding leadership, risk assessment, standards and controls, training and communication, and company oversight and should consider whether or not the considered expansion should be domestic or international.

Part I

Develop a 1,750-word compliance plan and include the following:

  • Apply critical thinking skills to decide what actions your Board of Directors should take regarding the leadership of your company and what specific leadership theories should be considered to solve your international expansion.
  • Explain the implications that a change in leadership would have on your company and its adherence to its governance principles and suggest a committee that would provide oversight for this process.
  • Summarize the standards and controls a manager in that business should take to identify and protect all company property rights for your domestic and international business?
  • Explain what steps a manager in your selected business should take to identify and protect the organization from violating the intellectual property (IP) rights of others and include at least one method to address this potential property  risk.
  • Analyze what special problems arise regarding business tort risk when your business decides to do business outside the United States and recommend the skills necessary for a change leader to address this problem.
  • Evaluate the legal risks associated with the expansion of your business and what processes should be in place to mitigate those risks, domestically and internationally, for your business.

Part II

Create a 3- to 5-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation:

  • Present to the board what human and material capital would be required if the expansion took place. What legal liabilities could arise under the corporate form for the Director or officer of the Board of Directors?
  • Recommend a training and communication plan the company should adopt if expansion is agreed upon.
