Tips for Effective Case Writing
An effective case analysis has three parts: (a) in the introduction, you need to have three elements—a statement of the strategic issue being addressed in the case, your answer or response to the issue, and how you will prove it. By the end of the introduction, the reader should know what the strategic issue is, what your position is regarding the issue, and how you are going to prove or substantiate your position; (b) in the body of your paper, use each paragraph to make a specific point supporting your position. Keep tying each paragraph back to the issue. Do not lose your way by simply reporting data. Make each paragraph purposeful. Identify the point you are making and how it substantiates the issues you have defined for the case. Detail your explanations and clearly show how they prove you are right relative to the position you are taking on the issue in the case; (c) the third portion is the conclusion. Simply sum up how you proved your position statement or arguments to be correct relative to the issue and recommendations you are supporting.
