How to do a case study: Each case comes with a scenario and a set of questions at the end. The main question you are concerned with in a case analysis is what recommendation you would make. I expect each student to address the issue(s) in the case as a professional and provide advice as a manager or consultant would to. The steps you should take are as follows: 1) Identify the issue(s ) in the case. 2) Critically analyze 3+ alternatives that will specifically address the issue(s) you mentioned above. This would go as follows – Duck Inc. has three alternatives to address the____ issue. One alternative would be to_______. If Duck Inc. selects this alternative, _______ would be the expected o utcome. Continue the process of analyzing alternatives…. 3) Make a recommendation based on your analysis above. Explain how to implement this as well as the hopeful outcome. 4. CASE STUD Y General Guidance Your submission must be in the form of APA formatted manuscript (title page – not required use below format or similar variation) , reference page, and citations within the body of the paper to support your discussion, 12 size font, and 1” margins). APA requires that you write in the third person a nd you should be directing this to the company not to individuals in that company, it is not a report about the company it is narrative report TO the company. Such documents are written in the third person and must remain objective, unemotional, and imper sonal . That means there should be no reference to you in any way shape and that there is no need to name any individual in the company, or for that matter, the company itself . It is inappropriate to repeat or summarize the case information. You should s tart by providing an analysis of, not repetition of, the case information and what you determine are the salient or critical corporate/strategic issues. Be careful to avoid gratuitous openings and closings . For these case studies, an abstract is not requ ired and abstracts never count towards a minimum word requirement. If you are, comfortable writing an abstract make sure it addresses your proposals in the paper and does repeat or summarize the case itself. Focus on demonstrating the ability to think an alytically and synthesize by providing realistic and viable solutions and/or alternatives. Each submission should demonstrate careful analysis of the company and the current situation followed by specific and focused recommendations. Businesses must make decisions regularly with imperfect information that means it is inappropriate to suggest any additional analysis, study, survey, or additional company effort to reach a decision. The student must resolve the issues based on the information available . A well -written case study should run approximately 500 -700 words (2 -3 pages, double -spaced) to earn full credit. Do not provide company histories and do not repeat or summarize case information. Complete and Post your Case Study to the Assignments Folder – Assignment may be in a memorandum, presentation form such as power point or in an APA style paper. APA style is not required, except references. EXAMPLE BELOW Daffy Duck RLMT 309 American Military/ Public University XXXXXXX Case Study 1. Case Issues: 2. Analysis 3. Recommendation 4.
