The following guidelines are offered as suggestions for preparing the case summary:
i. Prepare a draft of the first one or two paragraphs that set the scene for the case. Introduce the main character(s)/ decision maker in the case, the organization, the time frame (e.g., Wednesday morning in September 2013) and set the scene for what the case will focus on.
ii. Provide a brief summary of the rest of the case: include an overview of the industry, give some background on the company, describe the data that needs to be made available in the case for students to do a meaningful analysis, provide a list of exhibits you think will be provided in the case.
