Case Study Analysis Guide
The guidelines presented below have been designed to help the student analyze the cases. They are not, however, intended to be a rigid format. Each question is intended to bring out information that will be helpful in analyzing and resolving the case issues. Each case is different, and some parts of the guidelines may not apply in every case situation. Also, the students should be attentive to the questions for discussion at the end of each case. These questions should be answered in any complete case analysis. The heart of any case analysis is the recommendations that are made.
