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?

    Narrative 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.
