Directions for Individual Project ISAS 610
* Please note that your group number is listed under the “Study Group” link on the left pane of this page.
Each student will be required to analyze one of the “Case Studies” found throughout your textbook. The student will use this analysis to develop a project that details their case study. The project should take the form of an annotated presentation of 20 to 40 screen shots of information. Although students can use a variety of tools in developing their project, the preferred solutions for presenting your materials are Microsoft PowerPoint ® or Adobe Acrobat®.
In developing your presentation, your slide notes should be long enough to explain clearly the points made on the slide, as if you were making an oral presentation. A suggested presentation structure would be the following:
State the company background.
Identify the problem facing the company (as identified in the textbook case study). In addition, you also may choose some other problem that you know the company is experiencing.
Present possible solutions to the issues identified in the case study. You should identify some options of your own in addition to the solution described in the textbook case.
Discuss recommended solutions (along with support for choosing the solution).
Present references, in American Psychological Association (6th ed.) format (if used).
Students are encouraged to use the Case Study Questions found at the end of each case study to help develop their presentations.
Here are the selected case studies for the projects. Your name is listed beside the case study for your project. Please note that EACH individual will submit an individual project based on the case study that they are assigned.
