5–6 Page Case Study
Title
The title should include the firm and leadership system. Make the title count. See the CEEMAN and ecch websites in the Resources area to get some ideas for titles that work well.
Abstract
Make it a practitioner abstract, meaning it is a description of the issue, urgency, firm, and sector. Include a “so-what” statement; for example, provide some sense of why this case is valuable or topical.
Introduction
Define the leadership system that is the center of the case and describe the situation in which the leader is embedded. Make the description interesting and define the degree of urgency or risk to create a sense of engagement. Be clear, crisp, and complete enough to create some common ground between the reader and the case.
Company Overview
You may use subheadings.
The overview is an orientation to how the leader and organization arrived where the student first finds them in the case. The overview can provide an historical perspective on the firm, the marketplace, culture, and key players. Measures of size, effectiveness, and specifics on market dynamics enhance the understanding of the size and scale of the organization and the importance of the leadership system issue.
Current Situation
You may use subheadings.
Tell the story of the situation in chronological order so that graduate students can understand the sequence of actions and the role of specific players in those actions. Include any specific plans to resolve the issue or situation offered by specific players in the firm. Do so without judgment, since it is the evaluation of the student readers that is important.
Specific Problem or Problems
You may use subheadings.
The focal point of the case is a specific problem that readers solve by taking action. Make sure the case brings the graduate-student audience to that point of recognizing where they enter into the fabric of the case narrative. It is a point of decision or a point of post-mortem decisions that occurs in the midst of fallout from a prior poor decision. The focal point must be compelling and realistic, but must also offer more than one logical interpretation regarding what decision or actions to take.
Action Alternatives

You may use subheadings.
The menu of action alternatives must relate to the point of urgency in the storyline of the case. For graduate students, some subtle direction toward specific action steps is recommended. Action steps could include making a decision, figuring out what alternative options exist and how to present them, or providing a postmortem, including some ways to integrate learning and improved leadership or leadership decision-making.
Conclusion
The final lines of the case study should drive home the urgency of taking action to resolve the core issue while providing a quick précis of where the players in the case find themselves.
Appendices
The case study should include a few well-selected enrichment materials that might include charts or links to videos. Each appendix should help build understanding and contextual information necessary to explore and advocate an action plan.

Overall Comments
Lorenzo,
Please see my comments in the attachment. You used multidisciplinary theories and models that inform leadership practice in diverse cultures. You have identified and supported leadership theory as it applies to your chosen case relative to its present operations as well as its approach to leading the organization into the future as a dynamic global enterprise. You have communicated your plan in a scholarly, professional manner, which is consistent with expectations for members of the business professions. You are off to a good start and I look forward to seeing how this case evolves as you dig deeper both into the company and the literature. Yours in Learning, Dr. Toni
