Challenges in the Global
Business Environment

According to the textbook, 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 Apple’s Chief Compliance Officer and
must prepare a video presentation for Apple’s suppliers regarding Apple’s
Supplier Code of Conduct to deliver via a web meeting. To prepare for your
presentation, review Apple’s Supplier Code of Conduct, located athttps://www.apple.com/supplier-responsibility/. Next, use a tablet, smartphone, laptop, desktop, or traditional video
recorder to record a maximum of a five to seven (5-7) minute dynamic video on
Apple’s Code of Conduct. Alternatively, you may submit a four to six (4-6) page
paper instead of the video submission.

In addition to the recorded video, you must also 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 presentation to email to the suppliers after the meeting for future
reference.

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:
