Responsibility Play of the Week: Jets, BP, & Tylenol

Starting this week, we'll have a new feature: borrowing from ESPN, with your help we'll pick a "Responsibility Play of the Week" highlighting great examples of responsibility, sustainability, & transparency -- or lack thereof -- from around the world.  Doesn't have to be business-related.  Sports, culture, politics, and of course business.  This week's candidates...
 
New York Jets Bench Braylon Edwards for DUI.  After getting arrested for driving under the influence the Jets benched Edwards for one quarter of their game against the Miami Dolphins.  Did the punishment fit the crime?  Or were the Jets too lenient and should've deactivate and fined him?  Or do you think he was only arrested, not convicted and we should withhold judgment for more facts?
 
 
BP Cleans House.  Incoming CEO Bob Dudley plans a major management shake-up including replacing the exec at the center of the disaster: Andy Inglis, the company’s head of exploration and production.  Was this the right move, right time?  Or is it still too little too late.  Or do you want to tell Bob, are you kidding, this company should be sold off for parts?  Or should we leave them alone, they’ve been through enough?
 
The J&J Phantom Recalls.  J&J -- the poster child for responsible recalls and crisis communications after its stellar handling of the Tylenol poisoning in the 1980s -- hired companies to surreptitiously buy up children's and adult Motrin from retailers without revealing the issue — a so-called "phantom recall".  CEO Bill Weldon faces tough questions from a US House Panel later today.  Was this a legit practice?  Something the FDA should ban?  Or we need more facts?

The course was great! Great value and great insights into collaborating with various partners in multiple situations. It really change my thought process and how I view situations with our clients and stakeholders. - CollaborateUp Academy Participant
I soon discovered that it doesn’t really matter whether your introduction to CollaborateUp is through an issue solving workshop, or at an event as Richard brings all the chaos together with his savvy charm and good humour - the most important thing is that you get to engage and work with these great folks! My biggest take out over the past five years of being a part of their world – collaboration is a process and you’re not going to get very far unless you know what problem you’re all trying to solve together. The CollaborateUp framework helps by asking simple questions to help reveal the big answers. - Cate O’Kane, Founder, &co partnership consultancy
"The CollaborateUp Workshop gave our delegates a set of tools they can use immediately to collaborate more effectively across multiple departments and organizations." - Erika Lopez, Global Impact
"Building up the capacity and capability of nonprofits to make a difference in the world is a core part of the Office Depot Foundation's mission. CollaborateUp had a really big impact on the nonprofits we support, giving them tools and insights they can use immediately." - Mary Wong
Extremely practical and extremely easy to implement once you have an understanding of the steps and the formula and the requirements of the process. - CollaborateUp Academy Participant
The course actually aids with more than just collaboration - it helps drive thinking into issue clarification, meeting handling and setting up, communicating with stakeholders. I loved it! - CollaborateUp Academy Participant
“Even with a diverse set of stakeholders and a very limited timeframe, the CollaborateUp Formula allowed us cut through a complex set of issues and develop a concrete and pragmatic proposal for tackling a very tough problem. Richard Crespin is exactly what you want in a facilitator, someone able to bring people together to recognize their shared goals and the best ways to achieve them.” - Amit Ronen Director, George Washington University Solar Institute
