Strategic objectives

To address the question of your organisation’s strategic objectives, use ethics matrix and stakeholder theory to identify the definitive, dominant and other stakeholders, and their demands. In particular, you MUST present and discuss a stakeholder analysis table (see next page for an example of the table). This stakeholder analysis table MUST appear in the BODY of the report and NOT in the appendices.

Once the ethics matrix and stakeholder analysis table have been presented, this section of the report should then briefly discuss the following questions: What are the strategic objectives of your organisation? Which stakeholder demands are these strategic objectives intended to address and satisfy? Do the strategic objectives of your organisation align with, and address, the demands of these stakeholders? What do you conclude if stakeholder demands and strategic objectives align? If they do not align, is there a significant issue emerging for your organisation?
