Preparing a Written Case Analysis

Preparing a written case analysis is much like preparing a case for class discussion, except that your analysis must be more complete and put in report form. Unfortunately, no ironclad procedure for writing a case analysis exists. All we can offer are general guidelines and words of wisdom. This is because company situations and management problems are so diverse that no one mechanical way to approach a

written case assignment always works.

Your instructor may assign you a specific topic around which to prepare your written report. Or, alternatively, you may be asked to do a comprehensive written case analysis where the expectation is

that you will:

1. Identify all the pertinent issues that management needs to address.

2. Perform whatever analysis and evaluation is appropriate.

3. Propose an action plan and set of recommendations addressing the issues you have identified.
