1. Fraud risks related to Tesla’s culture, leadership, and governance structure
a) How would you describe the “tone at the top” set by Tesla’s leader, Elon Musk? How does Musk’s leadership style and his “tone at the top” contribute to possible fraud risk at Tesla Motors?
b) How would you describe the company’s culture? How might this culture create pressures and rationalizations for fraud?
c) Review Tesla’s Code of Business Conduct and Ethics (See Supplement 1 – Tesla’s Code of Business Conduct and Ethics). How might any potential weaknesses in this code contribute to fraud risk at this company?
I need question 1) A, B, and C answered please.
