Case analysis is a powerful tool for teaching, learning, and most importantly practicing the art and science of management. The case method immerses students in real life situations and enables them to develop their business skills by analyzing realistic situations, applying business theories and tools, and presenting well-founded recommendations for action. However, working with cases is an unfamiliar educational approach to most new business students and is often misunderstood by advanced students. The case guide series introduces students to the case method and guides them in unobtrusive notes through the tasks that typically arise when assigning cases: analyzing a case, discussing cases in class, writing case reports, and making presentations (individually and in groups) and write case reviews. A final note introduces students to the most common business tools used for case analysis. This field-proven series is best suited as a complete package for case method orientation, but each note stands on its own and can be used as a supplement to other course materials. Understanding the case method: Note 1 of the case guide series describes the case method and its purpose, and describes the basic process of reading and analyzing a case.
