This week's Assignment consists of viewing a scenario about Sandwich Blitz, Inc., reading an
article about integrity in leadership, and writing a two-page double-spaced paper.
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 Kaplan Library and read Sherman’s Eight Steps toward
Integrity on pages 39–45 of the following article:
Source: Sherman, S. (2003). Rethinking integrity. Leader to Leader, (28), 39–45.
This article can be found in the Business Source Complete Database in the Kaplan Online
After reviewing these Eight Steps, write a paper of at least two full double-spaced pages in
length responding to the following:

situation and why.
