First step: Challenge
Understanding the problem
In today’s business environment, companies need to continually reinvent themselves. We take an innovation-led approach to help clients “imagine and invent” their future.
A case study helps students learn by immersing them in a real-world business scenario where they can act as problem-solvers and decision-makers. The case presents facts about a particular organization. Students are asked to analyze the case by focusing on the most important facts and using this information to determine the opportunities and problems facing that organization. We were asked to identify alternative courses of action to deal with the problems they identify.
A case study analysis must not merely summarize the case. It should identify key issues and problems, outline and assess alternative courses of action, and draw appropriate conclusions. The case study analysis can be broken down into the following steps:
• Identify the most important facts surrounding the case.
• Identify the key issue or issues.
• Specify alternative courses of action.
• Evaluate each course of action.
• Recommend the best course of action.
