Individually, identify and research two companies in two different industries that have faced corporate compliance issues related to the course concepts. For each company selected, discuss the following in a 350-word synopsis: (A) the situation facing the company, (B) how the company responded to the issue, and (C) outcomes of the company’s response to the situation. Thus, each team member should have two 350-word synopses, one for each company, which provides the information identified. To avoid duplication of efforts, each team member should identify, to the team, the companies he or she will be researching before doing this part of the assignment.
As a team, based upon the information gathered from the individual work done in part one, prepare a 1,050-word to 1,400-word analysis that synthesizes the key findings. As a team, using the companies researched: (A) identify the key corporate compliance concepts, and (B) compare and contrast the practices of each company related to those concepts. Appropriately cite all references used.
The team will submit a final composition which consists of a title page, the team’s overall analysis, the individual company synopses (with the preparer of each synopsis identified), and an appropriate reference page. As a guideline, a team of five will submit roughly 18-19 pages of material as well as a title page and reference page.
Format the paper according to APA style.
