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. 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? 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 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? 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.

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.
