A Case Analysis Paper (Final Paper) is due on the last class session.
The case study analysis paper must be submitted using APA-style formatting. Students must address the topic in sufficient depth, and are expected to supplement their analysis with research that goes beyond what is presented in the case and textbook. Good writing, consistent logic and cogent arguments are positive traits of any written assignment and will be considered for grading purposes. Students are required to use proper APA-style in-text citations and referencing.
The case study analysis paper must contain the following sections:
APA style cover page.
Briefly summarize the key facts, scope and aspects of the case.
Body of the paper.
Summarize your findings and recommendations.
References. (A minimum of 3 References).
Note: The paper should not exceed ten (10) pages in length, inclusive of all sections. The introduction should provide a brief but sufficient foundation for understanding the case, its key facts and pressing issues. Students should focus their efforts in the body of the paper by providing adequate analysis based on the facts of the case, as opposed to an elaborate description of such facts. The body will consist of the following; the management style that the student selected, why the student selected that particular management style, and how the employees under the student’s supervision will benefit from the type of management styles that were selected. Remember, you are writing the paper from a managerial standpoint.
