A case study is a short description of a real business situation. Analyzing case studies gives you the opportunity to apply concepts to real business problems. Cases are generally written for several types of analysis. There is no “right” or “wrong” answer in case analysis. Rather, cases provide a vehicle for you to demonstrate your understanding of concepts and your ability to apply them to situations. Download and read the detailed guide to case analysis. This is the fourth of the four short case analysis assignments in this course. All cases are from the assigned textbook. The case for this assignment is:
• Case 4: Big Changes for a Small Hospital (Chapter 13, pp. 550–5 51).
Read the case and answer the questions at the end of the case. However, answering these questions is not enough. Consider the questions to be clues to the important concepts and facts. Discuss the case in a larger context. Use the following questions to guide your analysis:
•How does the case relate to the textbook material?.
•How does it relate to your experiences?.
•What theme or lesson would you take away from the case?.
Write all your case study analysis in one document. The case analysis should be two to three pages long. Be sure to follow the APA style for writing and editing. Cite any sources you use.
See Course Calendar for due dates.
