Organic Delights: Examining the Challenges of Corporate Social Responsibility
Bear, Stephen E.
Management Teaching Review, v2 n2 p98-106 Jun 2017
Organic Delights is an experiential exercise designed to help undergraduate business students learn about corporate social responsibility (CSR). In this exercise, students assume the role of a senior manager of a fictional restaurant and caterer. The challenge for the managers is to evaluate and choose among six proposals to promote the company's CSR. Students are first requested to evaluate the proposals on their own and then, later, to evaluate the proposals by working with a group of students who represent the company management team. The exercise enables students better understand the concept of CSR and reflect on the meaning and obligations of socially responsible business leadership. The exercise and recommendations for the debriefing are provided.
