Writing the Case Analysis Begin the paper with an overview of the situation as described in the reading. Provide sufficient detail such that someone who has not read the case could understand what is going on. A thorough written analysis should include, but not necessarily be limited to, the following: 1) A clear statement of the problem(s). 2) A thorough analysis of the pertinent stakeholders and of the issues and the ways these combine to create the problem(s). Address the issues in the questions that follow the case if included. 3) One or more suggested solutions, with clear explanations of the strengths and weaknesses of each solution and with each solution supported. 4) An explanation of how the solution(s) can be implemented (by whom, etc.) and the problems that might be encountered with the implementation. Avoid “might be” scenarios. Unless such material can be solidly and logically derived from the existing case material, it has no place in the written case analysis. The quality of the written analysis will be judged not only on the solutions provided but also on how well the analyzer has supported his or her arguments with the use of case material, theory, and solid critical thinking. No statement should be included in a case analysis that is not thoroughly supported.
