By arms when it is attacked by arms, by truth when it is attacked by lies, by faith when it is attacked by authoritarian dogma. Always, in the final act, by determination and faith. How Tsinoy Taipans built their empires. It is a rags to riches story that even myself did not realize until I went to trace his roots in China.
Included in these cases are questions to help you understand and analyze the case. You may, however, be assigned other case studies that do not have questions.
This Hands-on Guide presents a structured framework to help you analyze such cases as well as the case studies in this text. Knowing how to analyze a case will help you attack virtually any business problem. A case study helps students learn by immersing them in a real-world business scenario where they can act as problem-solvers and decision-makers.
The case presents facts about a particular organization. Students are asked to analyze the case by focusing on the most important facts and using this information to determine the opportunities and problems facing that organization.
Students are then asked to identify alternative courses of action to deal with the problems they identify. A case study analysis must not merely summarize the case.
It should identify key issues and problems, outline and assess alternative courses of action, and draw appropriate conclusions. The case study analysis can be broken down into the following steps: Identify the most important facts surrounding the case.
Identify the key issue or issues.
Specify alternative courses of action. Evaluate each course of action. Recommend the best course of action. Let's look at what each step involves. Read the case several times to become familiar with the information it contains. Pay attention to the information in any accompanying exhibits, tables, or figures.
Many case scenarios, as in real life, present a great deal of detailed information. Some of these facts are more relevant than others for problem identification. One can assume the facts and figures in the case are true, but statements, judgments, or decisions made by individuals should be questioned.
Underline and then list the most important facts and figures that would help you define the central problem or issue. If key facts and numbers are not available, you can make assumptions, but these assumptions should be reasonable given the situation. The "correctness" of your conclusions may depend on the assumptions you make.
Use the facts provided by the case to identify the key issue or issues facing the company you are studying. Many cases present multiple issues or problems.
Identify the most important and separate them from more trivial issues. State the major problem or challenge facing the company. You should be able to describe the problem or challenge in one or two sentences. You should be able to explain how this problem affects the strategy or performance of the organization.John L.
