HELLO GUYS Can some one help me out with how to write a case study? Is there any specific format or methodology to be followed? Can anyone tell me :? Regards SHARAT
hi sharat

Here are some of the tips on writing a case study

Read a case at your normal speed without stopping to take

notes. Read the assignment at the end of the case (if there is an

assignment), and then carefully read the entire case again,

taking notes in the margins as you read. You are trying to

identify problems in the case and formulate recommendations to

solve these problems, then prepare an outline with the following

four headings: Summary, Analysis, Recommendations, and


As you write your case analysis, you must include

appropriate references to the assigned reading. Your references

should be in the following format: (Brandenburger & Nalebuff, 1996, p.


1. Summary of the facts presented.

2. Analysis of the problems.

3. Recommendations for solutions to the problems.

4. Implications your recommendations will have on the operation

of the organization in the short and long term, and for

broader policy implications. In other words, if your

recommendations are implemented, what changes will the

organization have to make in the way it does things now and

in the future?

Begin your write-up with a synthesis of the facts in the

case in one or two brief paragraphs under the heading of Summary.

Do not put any discussion of problems or recommendations for

solutions in the Summary sectionit must be a brief summary of

just the facts in the case.

The most important section of your analysis comes next,

under the heading Analysis. This section should be the longest,

most thorough section. Managers cannot solve problems unless they

can first identify them. Recognizing that something is a problem

and then understanding the nature of the problem is the beginning

of all managerial wisdom. Solutions generally fall into place

relatively easily once the specific problem is understood

(precision in problem identification is vital). There are often

several viable solutions, but you cannot implement any of them if

you cannot identify the problem. It is critically important there

be references to the assigned reading in the Analysis section.

Your grade will depend, to a large degree, on how many

appropriate, logical references you include in your write-up.

Next, write your Recommendations as to how to solve the

problems. Put the solutions in order of priority. It is

critically important there be references to the assigned reading

in the Recommendations section. Your grade will depend, to a

large degree, on how many appropriate, logical,relevant references you

include in your write-up.

Finally, in a section headed Implications, you should write

what implications your solutions will have on the organization's

future. Include appropriate references in the Implications


Even though this is not an English course, you are expected

to write in clear, concise, well-organized English. Be

particularly watchful for errors in spelling, especially, understand

the difference between "its" and "it's.

Hope this will help you out in analysing a case

There are many different kinds of case studies. There are also a wide variety of uses of these studies, academic research in support of commercial points. There are roughly four types of case studies: illustrative (descriptive events), exploratory (IP), cumulative (comparison collective information) and critical (examine a particular topic and the results of cause and effect). Once you become familiar with the different types and styles of case study writing and how each applies to your goals, steps make writing more fluid and ensure the development and delivery of a standardized case study which can be used to support a point or illustrate achievements.
