The following information will be required for the Executive Summary.  TEXTBOOK CASE ANALYSIS GUIDANCE(CAG) Preview the documentand the TEXTBOOK BUSINESS CASE ANALYSIS EXECUTIVE SUMMARY TEMPLATEPreview the document These files are required for the unit textbook case studies.

Synopsis of the Case: The content of the synopsis should present relevant background facts about the case under examination.

Relevant Factual Information about the Problem or Decision the Organization Faced: State  the precise problem or decision the organization faced.  The section  should include information that addressed the business issue under  examination. This section should be no longer than a single paragraph.

Explanation of Relevant Concepts, Theories and Applications Derived from Course Materials:  This  section should be the bulk of your paper. Analysis of the business  problem or decision in light of the course concepts must be presented,  as well as the business lesson another organization could learn from  this situation. Besides citation to the text, learners must conduct  research in the University library related to the top. Citing the  textbook only is not enough to demonstrate you understand and can apply  the course objectives. Here is where comparative and contrasting  positions should be considered and examples and illustrations provided.

Recommendations: Provide logical  recommendations to address the business lesson identified above. The  recommendations need not to be specific to the organization examined,  but should consider how other organizations, if similarly situated,  could lessen the impact of the problem or decision identified. Recall,  that the organization under examination has already moved pasted this  problem so any recommendations made, at this point, are fruitless. The  focus of this section should be on what other companies should be aware  of to address similar problems or decisions. Citation to the textbook  alone is insufficient for analysis in this section. Learners should  conduct research in the University’s library to support their positions.  Depth of scholarship is not demonstrated by providing personal opinions  alone, but by using examples, analogies, comparison and illustrations  from the academic literature. Not only does this synthesize the material  to assist the reader’s understanding, it is an effective way to present  the academic sources and extend the discussion of your ideas. This  section should be a paragraph or two.

Alternative Recommendations: This section is not a  continuation of the prior. Provide suggestions for how to avoid the  problem or decision the examined organization faced. Analysis here  should be may be forward- thinking, predictive or, most likely,  preventative in nature but tied to the thesis statement. Again, opinion  is insufficient to provide the required academic analysis. Sources,  other than the text, must be provided to sustain the statements made.  This section should be a paragraph, at most.

Conclusion: End the assignment with  a summary of the important points made in the document. No new  information may be presented. Writing a conclusion can be done by  rewording the opening or reformulation the topic sentences of each  paragraph to make a summary for the reader. This section should be a  paragraph, at most.
