THE CASE BRIEF A Model For Case Analysis, Writing And Discussion


  • John Washbush


The session addresses a common problem in undergraduate case discussion and writing—the tendency for students to reiterate lengthy lists and discussions of facts of the case without effec-tively identifying key facts while failing to adequately addressing their implications. The case brief, using the basic problem-solving model, provides a carefully structured approach for the student to more precisely define key facts, identify valid strategic problems, and more pointedly define, discuss and recommend relevant courses of action. In addition to describing the model used in the brief, the session will interactively demonstrate an exploration of a short case using the case brief format.
