The Oracle Vs. Microsoft Corporate Espionage Scandal

These are just a few articles you can examine to begin your research. There are many more sources which highlight techniques and tactics, in addition to court filings and books. The above is simply a starting point for the paper.  

The following questions should guide you while writing the paper:


What techniques were used by either or both sides to gain a competitive advantage?


Did either or both corporations violate federal laws?


How did one or both corporations respond to the charges?


How can we apply lessons learned to current corporations who are working tirelessly to protect their corporate secrets?


How does corporate espionage differ from cyber espionage?

The above questions are simply a guide for you to consider.  As they are deliberately broad in scope, you should have enough flexibility to focus your paper on specific topics such that are of most interest to you. If you are unsure how to specifically focus your paper feel free to contact me to discuss. 

You may earn up to a maximum of 33 points for the case study, which will comprise 33% of your final overall grade for this course.

You must include proper source citations within the text and a list of references or bibliography at the end of the paper.  Wikipedia is not considered a valid source for academic papers.  Plagiarism will not be tolerated.

Legal And Ethical Business Environment

Legal And Ethical Business Environment

When a reporter makes a mistake in a magazine article by misidentifying a fact, the magazine can run a correction. However, if a health care worker makes a mistake by misidentifying a patient’s symptoms or by giving an incorrect dosage, someone can get hurt or even die. Accountability and responsibility can be very different across different professions. Have you stopped to consider if this is fair? Should we hold people in certain professions to higher standards of legal accountability and responsibility? Choose a position, and discuss your answer:


FOR argument: Yes, we should hold people in certain professions to higher standards of legal accountability and responsibility. Why do you believe so? What professions do you believe should be held to a higher accountability standard, and why?  


AGAINST argument: No, we should not hold people in certain professions to higher standards of legal accountability and responsibility. Why do you believe not? Is there any situation in which you would be inclined to change your argument?

Topic: Servant Leadership from a Christian Perspective: The Issue of Serving

                                    Leadership Journal: Serving


Journaling provides a valuable tool for recording, reflecting on, and reviewing your learning. This approach provides an opportunity for you to “connect the dots” and observe the relationships between and among activities, interactions, and outcomes.

Unlike a personal journal of thoughts and feelings, this Leadership Journal is a record of your activities, assessments, and learning related to this academic experience.

Journal entries should include a record of the number of hours spent with your nurse leader each week.

Write a journal entry of 1,000-1,500 words on the subject of serving, including the following:

1. Provide observations and thoughts on the activities in Weeks 9-10.

2. Would your co-workers or those you “serve” consider you responsible for some aspect of their success? Describe a situation where you were able to assist another nurse with achieving a professional goal.

3. Reflect on at least two things you learned from the “Issue of Servant” video.

APA format is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.
