...University of Phoenix Material Case Study Analysis Paper Prepare a 1,400 to 1,750-word case study analysis paper based on the University of Phoenix Material, “Case Study for Student Analysis,” located in Week Two of the COMM/215 page. Below is a detailed description explaining how to prepare a case study analysis paper. _____________________________________________________________________________ Typically written in narrative form, a case sets forth, in a factual manner, the events and organizational circumstances surrounding a particular managerial situation. Placing the reader at the scene of the action, the real events presented provide an opportunity to help evaluate alternative courses of action. Case analysis is used in academics to help you demonstrate your ability to evaluate situations critically, to apply concepts you have learned in a class, to solve problems, and to communicate your findings and conclusions. The purpose of this exercise is to introduce you to case studies and the analysis process, and to a proper format for writing the case study analysis report. Try not to worry about trying to find the "right answer" to a case. Usually, there is no single right answer. Most cases are intentionally ambiguous and can be viewed from many different perspectives. Several feasible solutions are usually available to any give case. The best solution is the one you can best support with thoughtful analysis, logical arguments, and substantiating evidence from......

...This case study is an excellent example of how different types of parties can be brought together in a large scale transaction and how the original energy of those early meetings can be lost over time. I imagine that when Anthony Athanas was purchasing those old piers back in the 1960s many, if not all, of his colleagues, friends, and family members told him that he was off his rocker. I’m sure Athanas was looking at this land as his family’s ticket to financial prosperity and somewhat of a legacy that he could leave to his descendants for years and years to come. One of the items I wish the case would have divulged is the amount of money that Athanas had invested in the properties. For me this information would have given an insight to his net worth and how much he had riding on this investment. I assume it was substantial given his actions later in the process. Twenty years later Athanas’ dreams came true and all those naysayers were more than likely green with envy. The amount of pride Athanas’ had in his investment at that moment had to have been insurmountable. Being approached by a big time real estate development company and their extremely wealthy client, Hyatt Corporation, must have made Athanas feel larger than life and made him feel like something he isn’t, which is a developer himself. The case doesn’t give much insight into whether Athanas had any representation or anyone consulting him throughout the process. From the beginning, I saw this as matchup...

Case Study

...Yin (2005) suggested that researchers should decide whether to do single-case or multiple-case studies and chose to keep the case holistic or have embedded sub-cases. This two-by-two combination can produce four basic designs for case studies. When selecting a case for a case study, researchers often use information-oriented sampling , as opposed to random sampling [3]. This is because an average case is often not the richest in information. Extreme or atypical cases reveal more information because they activate more basic mechanisms and more actors in the situation studied. In addition, from both an understanding-oriented and an action-oriented perspective, it is often more important to clarify the deeper causes behind a given problem and its consequences than to describe the symptoms of the problem and how frequently they occur. Random samples emphasizing representativeness will seldom be able to produce this kind of insight; it is more appropriate to select some few cases chosen for their validity. But this isnt always the case. Three types of information-oriented cases may be distinguished: Extreme or deviant cases Critical cases Paradigmatic cases. [edit]Critical case A critical case can be defined as having strategic importance in relation to the general problem. For example, an occupational medicine clinic wanted to investigate whether people working with organic solvents suffered brain damage. Instead of choosing a representative sample among all those......

...component of the problem that existed at L'Oreal. The needs that each product fulfilled were beyond basic physiological needs and extended to 'belonging' and 'esteem' factors which contributed to an individual's sense of intimacy, self-worth and need for respect from others (e.g. peer's, loved ones etc.).This can also be related to the reasoning behind the companies advertising campaigns that launched a call to action entitled 'because you're worth it'. The nature of such products transcended functional values and the emotional attachment that consumers felt was also important to distinguish and create 'star' products. This is alluded to in the 'Customer Value Hierarchy' which identifies core, basic, expect and augmented product values. In the case of L'Oreal, the Plenitude line is clearly competing on an augmented level which attempts to exceed customer's expectations through high quality and innovation. Within the context of the U.S. industry, the Plenitude range was positioned within a highly competitive sector that was dominated by large operators such as Proctor & Gamble and Ponds (Exhibit 11 and 12 highlights the various players in both the moisturizing and cleansing sectors in a graphical BCG and depicts the amount of growth with volume; from this analysis the leaders in moisturizing and cleansing are 'Olay' and 'Noxzema' respectively). Another feature of the industry which is pertinent to describe is the industry point of view regarding the products which they sell.......

...Fast Food Nation and Supersize Me, I found the different emphasis in the contents, but they both show the fast food has influenced people deeply and we must find the right way to build the right opinion about the fast food and health. In the Fast Food Nation, we find the Eric Schlosser’s book promises to tell the dark side of all-American meal. It’s covers much of fast food culture and he also discusses how it developed, how taste of food can now be manipulate, federal regulations , health issues, and the spread of fast food abroad. In this book, it separate to ten chapters to show the detail of the fast food influences. First Schlosser traces the sources of the beef, chicken, and potatoes served in fast food restaurants. In all cases, the sources have been consolidated into a few huge companies supplying the nation's fast food chains. Then it documents that where the food comes from. The slaughterhouse business too developed out of the philosophy of more profit with fewer works. The meatpacking industry looked for ways to deskill the works, so it could be done by low-paid workers. Third, it shows the fast food and cultural change. The golden arches of McDonald’s have become a symbol of America. Schlosser is not the first critic to notice the change in American society brought about by the chaining of America. As the small family-owned business has fallen and been replaced by giant corporations with no concern for the local community, the quality of life has changed.......

...A Case Study by any Other Name Cathy Foster Liberty University   A Case Study by any other Name Researchers have different methods of observing their subjects. Among the most popular is the case study. Case studies are used a lot in psychology and one of the most famous psychologists that used case studies to detail the private lives of his patients was Sigmund Freud. What is a Case Study? “A case study is an observational method that provides a description of an individual” (Cozby & Bates, 2012). During a case study the individual is usually a person however that’s not always the situation. The case study can also be a setting, which can include a school, business, or neighborhood. A naturalistic observational study can sometimes be called a case study and these two studies can overlap (Cozby & Bates, 2012). Researchers report information from the individual or other situation, which is from a “real-life context and is in a truthful and unbiased manner” (Amerson, 2011). What are some Reasons for Using a Case Study Approach? There are different types of case studies. One reason to use a case study is when a researcher needs to explain the life of an individual. When an important historical figure’s life needs explaining this is called psychobiography (Cozby & Bates, 2012). The case study approach help answer the “how”, “what”, and “why” questions (Crowe, 2011). What are Some Advantages and Disadvantages to the Case Study Approach? Some......

...Case Study Complete Case History The patient in this case study reports being ‘sick with flu’ for 8 days. She has been vomiting, and cannot keep any liquids or food down. She also reports that she has been using antacids to help calm the nausea. After fainting at home, she was taken to the local hospital, severely dehydrated. Upon looking at her arterial blood gas result, it would appear that this patient would be suffering from metabolic alkalosis. This patient’s pH is greater than 7.45 (normal: 7.35-7.45) and her bicarbonate (HCO3) is greater than 26 (normal 22-26). Blood gases indicate that case study patient is suffering from hypochloremic metabolic alkalosis. Focused Assessment The case study patient reports being “sick with flu” for eight days. She reports vomiting several times a day and taking more the recommended dose of antacids. She reports that she fainted today at home and came to the hospital. The case study patient reports that this all started approximately eight days ago. The case study patient also reported taking excess amounts of antacids. Ingesting large amounts of this medication can cause metabolic alkalosis. When antacids are taken in large doses, the ions are unable to bind, and therefor the bicarbonate is reabsorbed and causes alkalosis (Lehne, 2013). Renal and Respiratory systems response Hypochloremic Metabolic alkalosis occurs when there is an acid loss due to prolonged vomiting which causes a decrease in the extracellular...

...Case Study: L'Oreal in China Allen Cha 1a) In a short time, the young Chinese cosmetic market has become quite saturated with numerous firms. In order for Yue Sai to position its brand effectively, it has to draw upon unique strengths that others do not have. Madam Yue-Sai created Yue Sai with the aim “to create, produce and sell the very best beauty and skincare products that we can offer to Asian women and to the world…” The company started under her belief that the Chinese women had different standards for beauty and required specifically tailored cosmetic products. If Yue Sai under Cotyhad continued to build its brand under this positioning instead of focusing on distribution, the brand would be a far more prominent player in the current Chinese market due to first mover advantage. Yue Sai is currently competing in target markets and product properties that it simply cannot succeed in. Consumers that are aware of Yue Sai’s original positioning brand image are most likely in their 30-50s. Luxury cosmetic firms do not traditionally target this consumer segment. If Yue Sai repositions its brand from “cosmetics for confident, modern Chinese women” to “delicate luxury cosmetics for modern mature Chinese women”, the brand would be able to instill a distinct image in the targeted consumer’s mind relative to competition. It is the ideal positioning for a brand named after Madam Yue-Sai, who now perfectly fits the new segment. It will be able to grab a dominant share of a...
