Guidelines for Analyzing Cases
Problem and Issue Identification
1. What are the central facts of the case? What assumptions are you making about these facts?
2. What is the major overriding issue in the case? What major question or issues does this case address that merits study at this point in the course?
3. What sub-issues or related issues are present in the case that merit consideration now?
Analysis and Evaluation
1. Who are the stakeholders in the case and what are their stakes? What challenges, threats or opportunities are posed by these stakeholders?
2. What economic, legal, ethical, and philanthropic responsibilities does the company have, and what is the nature and extent of these responsibilities?
3. If the case involves company actions, evaluate what the company did or did not do in handling the issue affecting it.
