A case study analysis requires you to investigate a leadership problem, examine the alternative solutions, and propose the most effective solution based on the evidence in the case. Use only information provided in the case study. Do not do additional research on the case itself.
INTRODUCTION: Identify the key issues in the case study.
BACKGROUND: Summarize the key players, relevant facts, and the most important issues. This section should be brief, yet demonstrate that you understand the case.
EVALUATION: Consider each of the important issues in the case. Evaluate what is or is not working, and why. Be sure to evaluate from a leadership viewpoint.
PROPOSED SOLUTION: Provide specific and realistic solution(s) or changes needed. Explain why the solution was chosen. Support the solution with evidence from concepts and leadership theory that you learned in class, or personal experiences.
RECOMMENDATIONS: Depending on the case, suggest either what should have been done differently to have avoided the problem, or what should be done next, and by whom, to fix the problem. Support with leadership theory.
