Your analysis of this case and your written submission should reflect an understanding of the critical issues of the case, integrating the material covered in the
text, and present concise and well-reasoned justifications for the stance that you take.
(Case analysis criteria: Your case analysis should consist of:
• A brief analysis of the situation and pending decision problem, as presented in the case, and as relevant to your answer. This should be exceptionally brief and you
should assume the person reading the Assignment is familiar with the details of the case.
• Identification of the major issues surrounding the organization or individuals involved with the organization.
• Identification of alternate courses of action to address the issues identified.
• The decision or recommendation for action, with the appropriate supporting arguments.
• The case question is designed to guide the direction of your analysis in the case. Your analysis should address and ultimately answer the question.
You may discuss your case analysis Assignment with the class, but you must submit your own original work. Case analysis tips: Avoid common errors in case analyses,
• Focusing too heavily on minor issues.
• Lamenting because of insufficient data in the case and ignoring creative alternatives.
• Rehashing of case data — you should assume the reader knows the case.
• Not appropriately evaluating the quality of the case’s data. • Obscuring the quantitative analysis or making it difficult to understand. Typical “minus (–)” grades
result from submissions that:
• Are not well integrated and lack clarity. • Do not address timing issues.
• Do not recognize the cost implications or are not practical. • Get carried away with personal biases and are not pertinent to the key issues. • Are not thoroughly
proofread and corrected. Assignment
