How to Write a Case Study

You have to think like a practicing manager
if you want to analyze a case successfully. As part of your analysis, it
is necessary, but not sufficient to answer the following questions in
enough depth to show that you have performed more than a superficial reading of
the case’s content, and subsequently applied relevant theory.

What is the issue being
presented or analyzed in the case? Focus on the main issue in the case if more
than one topic is presented. Use your judgment to decide on which issue is the
one that is potentially most costly to an organization if left unresolved.
There are more kinds of cost to be considered than economic costs. Do not neglect
them in your analysis.

Where did the issue take
place? Consider this because you need to take into account cultural and
environmental considerations that may differ from those of the United States,
in your analysis.

When did the issue take
place? There may be historic and environmental considerations different from
those of the United States, which should be taken into account in your

Who was affected by the
issues? In other words, who are the stakeholders inside and outside of the
organization that need to be considered when formulating an analysis, and
possible response to the situation?

Why did the issue
occur? This may involve conjecture on your part. It is all right to speculate;
just identify your speculation as such. In an empirical case, causal factors
may be identified as such.

How would you, as a
manager, apply the insights gained from the case to improve an (your)
organization’s operations?

Answers should be written in grammatically correct, well-formulated English sentences. Each
paragraph should be organized around a single topic, and transitions should
flow logically from one paragraph to the next.
