Guidelines for Case Analysis


Break the analysis into the following major headings:

Company Situation


Appendix Financial Ratios, Industry Analysis, Five Forces Analysis, SWOT, SGM, etc.

In addition, use the subheadings described in this document to break up long sections.

Use APA style which means double space throughout-do not add any additional space between paragraphs. Be sure to indent the first word of each new paragraph. Do not have long paragraphs containing a variety of related but different topics-break into smaller paragraphs for organization and ease of reading. Use a topic sentence to clarify the purpose of each paragraph. Number the pages starting with the Introduction , e.g., do not include the title page.

Start each of the major sections with an introduction that briefly characterizes and sets the stage for the section. Also at the end of each significant section, summarize with a paragraph capturing the key strategic findings of your analysis for that section. Do not make comments like "The case did not provide information on . . ." You do not need to site the textbook or case. Eliminate personal pronouns such as I, we, etc.

Staple or clip the paper in the upper left hand corner-no binders, please.
