    If you don't know what you are looking for, you won't find it. Most cases illustrate one of three core scenarios: -The need to make a critical decision and potentially persuade other characters in the case to accept -The need to perform an in-depth evaluation that lays out the pros and cons or strengths and weaknesses of the subject of the case need to perform -A comprehensive problem diagnosis that identifies the root causes of a problem described in the case The critical question of the reading pro If you don't know what you are looking for, you won't find it. Most cases illustrate one of three core scenarios: -The need to make a critical decision and potentially persuade other characters in the case to accept -The need to perform an in-depth evaluation that lays out the pros and cons or strengths and weaknesses of the subject of the case need to perform -A comprehensive problem diagnosis that identifies the root causes of a problem described in the case The critical question of the reading process is, What do I need to know to accomplish what the main character has to do or to resolve the major uncertainty In business, numbers have meaning only in a specific context. Without the context, they’re simply numbers. A decision is only as good as its implementation. A smart decision can be undermined by poor implementation. Implementation is critical because a great decision will be defeated by a poor action plan. Those long hours will just make you sleepy, not more knowledgeable another reason for becoming involved early is that to learn how to be a good participant, you must participate. When you write about a case, you need to be concerned about four things: 1. The question you’ve been asked 2. How to read and analyze a case 3. How to organize your writing about a case 4. How to write clearly, concisely, and correctly So, when you use numbers in an argument, make sure you tell your readers what they mean and how they’re relevant to your position.

    This book is informative, but the author tried to explain clearly enough for readers to comprehend. This book is suitable for those who want to proceed to study a case study on your own. It contains theories, three case examples as well as intensive analyses and clear instructions for writing them.

    It is often that you find confused with too many problem solving frameworks, business frameworks, and case categories that fail to put them in a coherent perspective. The distilled experience with case studies by the author helps you crack difficult cases no matter your background. The first book I read that effectively tackle the all-important reading/analysis of cases (Harvard style). The 8 steps proposed to tackle each case is not intuitive in its language, and should be linked more to the use It is often that you find confused with too many problem solving frameworks, business frameworks, and case categories that fail to put them in a coherent perspective.
