(iii) If appropriate, consider the theory/models which are appropriate for your theme; describe them in summary only using suitable references and then pose and answer some of the questions listed). You may even consider it appropriate to criticise them in your conclusion / learning points summary.

(iv) Don't describe your case study in too much detail. Give the reader only sufficient detail to help them understand the key issues.

(v) Always support your sources with references. Avoid opinion or unsupported assertions

(vi) Always Include a Conclusion - your conclusion should comment on the usefulness of the theory (or otherwise) and the significance of your findings. You may even care to comment critically as to how the organisation should change and provide recommendations but this is not essential. Personal reflection is essential however.
