The Prince, by Niccolo Machiavelli

Scenario: You have succeeded beyond your wildest dreams because of the impressive
proposal you generated, along with many more successful documents. Now, from your perch
in the corner office, you find yourself with more time to think critically and creatively. As a
result, your thoughts turn towards a text you once read: The Prince, by Niccolo Machiavelli
(assigned to you by some long-forgotten but much-appreciated professor).
Your goal in paper four is to consider the company you have worked with for papers two and
three as you read and evaluate Machiavelli. While you have conducted a great deal of
research so far, anticipate the possibility of more as you work with The Prince.
In this paper, you will discuss Machiavelli in the context of your company through the use,
analysis, and application of 3-5 quotes from The Prince. Consider the following as part of
preparing for your paper:
In what ways does your company adhere to or reject Machiavelli’s teachings? How does
this adherence to or rejection of Machiavellian ideas help or hurt your company?
