Ensure that your selected articles reflect a blend of research that has contributed to the generation of applicable theories as well as a critique and affirmation of the specific theories.

  1. Develop an introduction on the background of each cultural theory, the concept of CSR, and the purpose of the literature review.
  2. Analyze all articles and describe the key themes that emerge across the seven selected articles.
  3. Synthesize the material and summarize the patterns of similarities and differences regarding how each of the authors has presented each theme.
  4. Based on your analysis of the literature, conclude by evaluating the impact of each cultural model on the application of the CSR in current global business operations. Refer to the internal and external factors that determine the successful implementation of CSR policies.
