This week's Assignment consists of viewing a scenario about Sandwich Blitz, Inc., reading an article
about integrity in leadership, as well as the assigned chapter readings, and writing a two-page
Each Sandwich Blitz location is situated on very small parcels of land. This original strategy has
contributed to somewhat lower operating expenses for the business and both Dalman and Lei view
this as a competitive advantage. Based on new local health codes, new laws have been issued
requiring trash dumpsters be a minimum distance of 30 feet (9.144 meters) from the rear entrance of
the building. New land-use laws require that all out buildings be at least 6 feet (1.8288 meters) from
the property lines. The enclosure that houses the trash dumpster is 5 feet (1.524 meters) from the
property lines, which is in violation of those laws. The government inspector has told the unit manager
that he would be willing to approve this if Sandwich Blitz provides the food for his department's
holiday party. The location manager has conveyed this information to Dalman.
The integrity of a business organization and its leaders is a universally accepted component of
business ethics. In his article “Rethinking Integrity” Stratford Sherman outlines eight ways in which
business leaders can manage a business organization with integrity. After reading the Sandwich Blitz
scenario above, visit the KU Online Library and read pages 39–45 of the following article:
Source: Sherman, S. (2003). Rethinking Integrity. Leader to Leader, (28), 39–45.
