- As the company’s CEO, what level of culpability did James have for the decisions that Mike, Lisa, and Cindy made?
- In what ways would knowledge about criminal penalties influence corporate leaders like James, Mike, Lisa, and Cindy?
- Who would law enforcement officials identify as victims in the case above?
- What type of training could protect a company against decisions like those that James, Mike, Lisa, and Cindy made in the case example above?
During corporate training sessions, it may help for leaders to work through these types of role-playing situations. By helping people understand how government investigations begin, we can go a long way toward helping team members make better decisions. Hopefully, we can also lessen corporate vulnerability to government investigations, and also reduce the number of people that face charges for white-collar crime.
