Case Study Structure
Eight cases will be studied and analyzed in the course. For each of the eight cases, assignments will be made to the cohort groups. The assignments will be as follows: Solution/Presentation group: responsible for presenting alternatives or issues and discussing the pluses and minuses of each. Synthesis, analysis, and interpretation of facts may be presented, but not a straight summary of case facts. A solution must be recommended and supported. All group members must participate. In addition to the oral presentation of the case, the group will submit a hard copy of the presentation slides. No case write-up is required. Individual Memo write-ups: Each student is responsible for producing an individual memo write-up on two cases of your choice. Obviously, the individual analysis will be done on two of the eight cases where you have no responsibility as a team assignment. These should be a very focused analysis of the case, concentrating on the questions provided for each case. The analysis should be no more than 2 to 3 pages. These two case write-ups will carry the same grade weight as the group case analyses.
