This is your first Case Study Analysis for this course. Please take a moment to read over the Case Study Analysis Guidelines as well as the attached rubric. Conducting a case study analysis should be done in a thoughtful manner and clear guidelines have been provided. In any industry, in every market, and in all environments, there is the need to think critically, apply your knowledge, and make actionable choices. This includes both experience-based knowledge and academic knowledge. Conducting a case study analysis is an excellent opportunity for you to apply some of your recently acquired know-how and gain insight into real-world issues.
Conducting a case study analysis requires you to investigate a business problem or issue, examine possible solutions, and propose an effective action-based recommendation. Answers to case study analysis write-ups are not black and white. Cases are specifically designed for critical thought, further investigation, and proactive solution building. No two papers will be alike, nor will this case study analysis be the same as the one assigned three modules from now.
Please proceed to the Review section.

Does your analysis include at least three references?
Is the paper in the current APA style?
After reading the analysis, does it align with the Case Study Analysis Guidelines?

Your paper will automatically be evaluated through Turnitin when you submit your assignment in this activity.
Why Analyze?
Conducting a case study analysis requires you to investigate a business problem or issue, examine possible solutions, and propose an effective solution. When reviewing cases, there is always an issue, policy, change in environment, or problem that has led to the discussion of change or the next steps. In Business Ethics, this is no different. When you are reading through the cases, make sure to consider the stakeholders: Who are they? Where did they come from, what are their motives, and how do the next steps impact them?
Each case study in this course has multiple viewpoints; consider them carefully and think through your subsequent step recommendations/solutions. How will the externalities (positive, negative, and neutral) impact the different parties?
The case study analysis assignments are worth 20% of your final grade.
Please proceed to the Preparation section.
