TESLA as the organization in which you are interested in with a public issue
the organization is facing. I have picked Tesla’s recent public issue with ‘phantom
braking’ in its 2021-2022 cars which has raised hundreds of consumer complaints
and ensued a federal investigation. Using your textbook as a framework, as well as
other sources for supplementary information, map the organization’s
stakeholders with respect to this issue and provide a stakeholder
analysis. Write a minimum of three (3) pages of APA
formatted paper in response to this assignment.

history and evolution of corporate social responsibility. International Journal

This paper details the history and evolutionary journey that
the concept of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) took along the years. I
will benefit from sections from this paper in order to discover the historical
concepts and theories that led to linking corporations’ obligations to
stakeholders other than the shareholders and creditors. I will shed some light on these findings in
my paper.

This paper examines through a quantitative study the
implications of U.S. corporations’ CSR initiatives for stakeholders while still
maximizing profitability. The basis of the study stems from the stakeholder
theory of CSR and agency theory. I will use the results of this study to
highlight the relationship and impact of a company’s actions and reactions on
its various stakeholders under the CSR umbrella. 3- Trebeck, K. (2008).

This study highlights practical expressions of CSR and stresses
the limitations of company responsiveness following these realities. Findings
from this paper will be incorporated into my paper to showcase the sensitivity
of time and responsiveness of companies in the face of public issues.

The paper completes a risk assessment and a study
highlighting the accusations that challenge the corporate social responsibility
(CSR) claims that Tesla is associated with in its mission. I will use the
findings in this study to reference Tesla’s past reaction and the stakeholders’
impact that previous issues had. Regulators open an investigation into ‘Phantom Braking’ by

Both of these journalistic articles depict the seriousness
of the story starting with some complaints and consumer reports around an
unexpected ‘phantom braking’ of Tesla cars that snowballed into even more
complaints and a federal investigation resulting in grave bearings on both the
market valuation and consumer valuation. I will use these journalistic pieces
to paint the stakeholder map, including the shareholders, consumers, consumer
agencies, the competitors, the SEC and the NHTSA.
