A case analysis from the book “Principles of Management”. I have attached the case in point, please answer the discussion questions in depth referring to the chapter as well as outside sources, and please cite your sources. PLEASE ALSO READ THE ATTACHED INFORMATION – THERE WILL BE EXAMPLES OF HOW TO DO IT. PLEASE CAREFULLY READ ALL OF THE INSTRUCTIONS. Case in Point Chapter Case Studies Assignment
Case studies are descriptions of situations which you could likely encounter, at some point, within your chosen discipline. They may be presented as short essays of very specific organizational scenarios (such as you will see in your text, at the end of the chapters), or in more detailed and comprehensive reports, or in specific templates provided to you. Regardless, you will need to carefully analyze the task you have been given and look at the requirements of your assignment. The purpose of case study analysis is to provide you with the opportunity to:
think about the complexities of real-life situations that you may face in the workplace
make connections between the theory you have learned to real-life practice
provide realistic, reasonable, and practical solutions to real-life problems
Your professor is looking for you to demonstrate an ability to think critically and analytically. This includes:
methodically and systematically analyzing the situation
identifying all the issues
exploring all aspects of the issues in depth
analyzing potential implications, outcomes or relevant considerations, read between the lines
making connections between the case and the theory presented in the chapter.
To do this successfully, you need a step by step process to think about the possibilities connected to each element of the case.
Five Steps to Complete the Task
How do you prepare and complete a case study?
Step 1: Choose your case
Throughout the semester, each student will choose three (3) case studies. Student will submit their choices as follows:
Unit 1 – Case in Point #1 – (choose one Case in Point from Chapters 1, 2, or 3)
Unit 2 – Case in Point #2 – (choose one Case in Point from Chapters 4, 5, 6, or 7)
Unit 3 – Case in Point #3 – (choose one Case in Point from Chapters 8, 9, 10, or 11)
At the end of each chapter there is a chapter-specific “Case Study” along with subsequent discussion questions. For example, let’s say for Unit 1, you choose Chapter 3 – Personality, Attitudes, and Work Behaviors. In Chapter 3, at the end of the chapter you will find the 3.6 Case in Point: Hiring for Match at Netflix on pages 108 – 109. It could show up on a different page for you if you are reading it online. Nonetheless, it is at the end of the chapter. You will read the case scenario and then answer the three to six (this varies per case) subsequent Case Discussion Questions (of course supporting your answers via the correlating chapter text material you have just read). * Please note: Unit 4’s case will be the Robin Hood Case. It will be a comprehensive case that includes all chapters (Chapters 1 – 15) and is provided by the instructor. Also, please make note there is a separate grading rubric for the Robin Hood Case as well.
Step 2: Analyze the case (Main Element)
Reading the case and then re-reading it is not sufficient as an analytical process. To really examine in-depth all the possible issues included in the case, you need to read and think at the same time. Brainstorming all the possibilities at this stage may help you ensure that you have not missed some important information. Some things to consider when analyzing a case are:
What are the definite facts? – listing any definite information is a useful starting point
What is happening / has happened? – list any definite actions that have occurred
Who is involved? – brainstorm all the people or organizations who could possibly be involved
What is their role? – what do these actors do and how are they affecting the case
Step 3: Explore in more detail (Inquiry & Analysis)
Refer to your specific task and be clear about what you are being asked to do. What is the purpose for analyzing the case? You may need to:
consider potential actions required
devise a plan considering all of the issues
These will most likely be connected to real-lifework situations. Exploring the case in more detail will help you to:
find any details which may not be explicitly stated
identify what extra information is needed to complete the task
Step 4: Making connections to theory (Integration & Application)
Understanding the links between the theoretical content in your course, overall text, the specific chapters, and the practical realities of the case is an essential element of any case study. Once you have a detailed analysis of the case, it will be important to:
interpret the case and solve the issues by creating a plan or recommendations
search for literature to support your actions, decisions or choices and justify your plans or solutions
demonstrate how you have developed your ideas by referring to reliable sources
Step 5: Completing the case (Critical Thinking & Research)
This is about your ability to analyze a management scenario, just as described in the previous steps. Therefore, ANALYSIS is what I am looking for from you. Reading between the lines, changing your perspective, up-close, in-depth, and detailed examination of the case. Doing your best to identify key issues, key players, and the most pertinent facts, not just from the case itself, but also the pertinence and correlative perspectives of the chapter-specific content. There is a reason the case is tied to the chapter wherein it resides. Being analytical, not descriptive! You absolutely MUST support your discussion in these questions with cited text support and, if applicable, outside research with subsequent appropriate in-text citation (i.e. MLA or APA I don’t care, whichever you are familiar with — see attached guides for assistance). These are not simply one sentence and done types of questions, I want you to think critically about each. Your comprehensiveness and thoroughness is vital. Your task is to answer these questions that may be posed or implied, reading between the lines and answering the “whys?” and “so whats”.
Submitting the Assignment – the Deliverables
You will complete the Case Study on one document,
You must have a header or title page,
The header or title page, must include the following: Indicator of which Unit, which Chapter, the title of the Case, date, and indication of ownership of the paper
Next, in 150-200 words, briefly summarize the key points of the case.
Then, in 1 – 2 well-developed paragraphs per each question, address the three to six questions at the end of the case. The number of questions vary depending on the case.
Be sure to use specific terminology and concepts from the text chapters with proper in-text citation as directed throughout (MLA or APA…see Step 5 above)
Finally, in 150-200 words, conclude the case analysis with any other recommendations or suggestions that you would consider if you were the manager in the scenario (i.e. put yourself in the shoes of the person making the decisions). For additional details, please refer to the Case in Point Case Study Analysis Grading Rubric document below.
