Letter for the Local Newspaper.

Imagine that the 2011 nuclear accident in Japan had happened at a plant site that was owned and managed by an American company and staffed by American-born employees or foreign-born employees hired by Americans. There is always a possibility that any organization will experience an accident, a blunder, a misstep. Imagine that your organization experienced an accident similar to Bophal, India where many people died.

I am required to:

1) Write a letter for the local newspaper to publish to the public at-large or write a speech for the president of the company to present to the local media and citizens in an effort to apologize and possibly explain the cause of the problem and its severity.

2) Write a letter to your organization's head executives (this could be your Board of Directors or Senior Executive Staff.) Explain in your own words (make up an accident and use your imagination) to the executives what happened and your step-by-step recommendations to avoid that kind of accident in the future. List what departments and failings might have been guilty in both errors of omission or commission; and how these errors can be prevented in the future.

If it helps fire your imagination, consider the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico by BP Oil and the people who operated their oil platforms. What could have been done to prevent the accident you are discussing above?

While one type of person might be more concerned with a slowdown of revenue or corporate image, others would be more concerned about the loss of life or harm caused to innocent people. You are expected to perform extensive research on the Internet to uncover answers and solutions that others have used in the past to avoid this becoming a critical problem facing the organization or overcome its negative effects in the firm's initial international ventures. No matter the location, the caste, the class, or the population; a firm opening operations in a foreign country must first do no harm to the citizens of that nation.

Thanks for getting me going with this!

Dear Mr. Cajole,
Thank you for your visit to our company. As promised by me, I hereby give the details of causes that led to the tragic oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
