You should expect to take 2-3 pages (double-spaced, 12-point font) for your response (not including any necessary reference pages). Include at least one (1) external scholarly resource/reference in your submission. Click Case Study Guidelines for more details. Be sure to respond to all questions:
- How would you describe the mine ownersâ€™ business strategy?
- Why would the organization want to mislead the federal inspectors?
- How did the culture of the organization influence keeping the records? What do you think would have happened if an employee â€œspoke upâ€ and reported safety problems?
- Do you think that federal inspectors should also be held responsible for this situation? Why or why not?
