What are the central facts and assumptions you are making based upon the facts presented in the case
Students are to prepare a case study of a business, which has confronted a problem relevant to this class. The case study is to be researched and written consistent with academic standards for graduate students. The case study should be 10 to 15 pages in length, with proper footnotes and bibliography. The case study is to be submitted in MS Word format. All of the case studies will be combined into a virtual casebook and published on the web.
The case study should be consistent with the Case Study Guidelines listed below. However, students are free to divert from strict adherence to format in the interests of creativity and academic precision. Research sources should include both the business press (“Forbes”, “Business Week”, “The Wall Street Journal”, etc.) and scholarly journals.


CASE STUDY GUIDELINES

Use the following outline as a guide for analyzing class cases and preparing your case presentations. Not every case will fit this framework completely, but it can serve as a basis for case analysis:

Problem/Issue Identification
1.      What are the central facts and assumptions you are making based upon the facts presented in the case?
2.      What is the major overriding issue or problem in this case? What major question/issue or problem does the case illustrate for use in this course?
3.      What sub-issues or related issues are presented in this case to provoke consideration or discussion in this course?
Analysis/Evaluation
1.      Who are the stakeholders in this case, and what are their stakes? What challenges and threats are posed by and to these stakeholders?
2.      What environmental forces (economic, political-legal, social, technological and ethical) are operating in the case?
3.      What are the public policy implications of the case?
4.      How does the era or the time in which the case is set fit into an understanding of the
problem?
5.      What “responsibilities” does the corporation or its' managers have toward the stakeholders in the case?
6.      What are the ethical issues in this case?

Recommendations
1.      What recommendations do you have for this case? Are there any strategic recommendations involved? If a company or industry is involved, what actions should they take or should have been taken in the case? Why? Be as specific as possible, and include a discussion of alternatives you have considered in the case (especially, the known alternative, i.e. what actually happened in the case).
2.      Are there any “follow-ups” to the case, i.e. what actually happened in the case.. Remember, you have the opportunity to follow up on the case, its' legal outcomes, etc.

3.      Try to bring your assumptions in the case into play here.

Introduction:

1) Briefly identify the sports league (or team) and describe the history of your topic. When and where did the league begin? Who were some past two or three trendsetters that helped to popularize the sport (10 points)?

Body:

1) Who currently regulates this sports league or organization? What changes has he/she made to the league? What are a couple of their responsibilities? (10 points)

2) What’s the league revenue? What is the average team value? If you are writing about a team, what’s your team’s value? (5 points)

3) What teams (or individual players) are some of key current figures in this league (i.e. who generates the most endorsement and/or merchandising revenue)? (5 points)


4) Does your league have a salary cap? What type of salary cap is it? What is the amount of the salary cap? Are teams punished for going over the salary cap? How does the league handle the re-signing of star players? (10 points)

6) How does the league handle live gate revenue? What are some of the key venues throughout the league (i.e. historic or largest)? In terms of construction costs, what are some of the most expensive venue? What’s the current trend in terms of building venues? (10 points)

Conclusion:

Grading:

1) Correctly answering each of the questions in the introduction. This portion is worth 10% of your grade.

2) Correctly answering each of the questions in the body. This will encompass 60% of your grade.

3) Knowledge of future trends and challenges. This portion will be worth 10% of your grade. You must be thoughtful in order to receive full credit.





4) Quality of your research (20 points):

. You can use a variety of journals (peer-reviewed), books (peer reviewed – generally speaking), newspaper articles, websites, or magazine articles.
. You must use a minimum of ten sources. Of your ten sources, five sources need to be peered-reviewed scholarly articles or books (You already have four articles from your proposal). The class reader does not count as an academic source because I want you do to your own research.
. If you use only non-academic sources, you will receive no credit for research (-20 points). Sports Illustrated, ESPN.com, or the Los Angeles Times are not examples of academic publications.
. You may use Wikipedia once. Wikipedia is accurate normally. Wikipedia, however, is not an academic resource. It is an online encyclopedia and random people can change its content. Be careful!!
. You may use one interview. That being said, I will only count an interview as one “non-academic” source. If you are having problems finding information, please come and see me far in advance. Please do not wait until the day before the assignment is due.

5) Hyperlinks: If you decide to use links for your works cited page or bibliography, you will receive no credit for research. I DON’T HAVE TIME TO BE CLICKING THESE HYPERLINKS. Furthermore, who told you this was an accurate way of writing a bibliography?

6) Grammar: If you have problems with sentence structure, please use the writing lab or someone, who has good grammar skills. Let’s put some effort in writing this paper. I do hope that I am reading a second draft.

7) Spelling: I will deduct three points for every obvious spelling error on find on your paper. For example, if I see a red line underneath the word, I will know that you did not even bother to look at the word you just typed or you don’t know how to spell the word. Be careful with typos because they are also spelling errors. Please proofread your paper or find someone who will read your paper. I should not be the first pair of eyes to see this paper.





8) Citing: Please remember to cite all your sources properly! Remember that you must cite your source when you use their book or journal article as a source. That means when you either quote or paraphrase a source you must cite the source. For every reference that is not cited in your paper, I will deduct 10 points. More than three improper citations or no citations (i.e. uncited paraphrasing) will result in an automatic zero and I will report you to the Judicial Affairs Office. Please be careful!! Do not throw away an entire semester of work by not citing your sources properly. Please see a librarian or me if you need help with your citations.
