UTSC - MGT B05/B06 Case Study Preparation Guide : Read the case thoroughly before writing your response. 1. Identify the format of your Case Analysis The format of your case analysis will be specified in the “required” section of the case assignment. It may be a short memo, a letter or a comprehensive report, etc. Regardless of the format, your case write-up should be concise, well organized, logical and persuasive. 2. Identify your role and consider who the users of the information are You must identify your role and understand how your role will affect the decision of the users of the information. You will also need to consider who the users are and what information will help them in making their decisions. 3. Identify any constraints and criteria related to the case and decision making Constraints impose limits on how you van account and report. For example, are there any contracts or rules that impose limits? Do not list constraints unless they are used in your analysis. Constraints that you identify should be used in your analysis and ultimately in your recommendations. 4. Analyze the Situation A considerable part of your case data analysis is devoted to interpreting the information contained in the case, drawing appropriate inferences and making logical deductions. You must ask yourself what analysis can be performed that will assist the manager in identifying possible course of action to resolve the problem. In doing your analysis, you may have to make certain assumptions. Not all assumptions are reasonable. Make sure you evaluate the reasonableness of your assumptions. All assumptions must also be stated in your analysis. 5. Define the Issues and Prioritize them It is important to start off with a clear understanding of the issue (s) to be resolved. Your ultimate decision must address the issue (s) that you have identified. If you fail to clearly identify the issue, your ultimate decision may not make sense to the reader of your responses. Not all issues are equally important. The key is to prioritize them. The importance of various issues depends on the objectives of the decision maker in the case and the consequences of the issues.
