Look at the Drucker Institute ranking of the best managed companies for 2020 (https://www.drucker.institute/2020-drucker-institute-company-ranking/) and the accompanying article Explore the Management Top 250 – WSJ.pdf

Amazon and Facebook both dropped in their ranking from 2019. Pick one company and write a memo to the CEO and Board telling them how they could improve their standing, if you think that’s feasible. Give a recommendation (2 pts) and then be as specific as you can about HOW to do what you recommend – if the CEO accepts your recommendations, what would she/he do tomorrow?(5 points)

Be sure to look at the company’s website, and see what they say about CSR, sustainability, governance, and other factors.

For Facebook, look at https://about.fb.com.

For Amazon, look at https://www.aboutamazon.com

Think about who the key stakeholders are for the company. Do your own research to see what recent developments might have impacted these ratings.
