  • The simplest thing would be to identify the situation and key problems. Include them in the introductory section of your case study. Once you have done that, identify how those problems were solved. This will bring you to the next section – Solution – this is the most technical part, in which you have to explain the solution and its components. Once done, figure out the benefits achieved and list them. The concluding remarks can talk about takeaways, future prospects and recommendations.
  • Use primary sources to research the background and events, then write about what happened and why it is important.
  • Open Power Point, then write your case study. Use charts, graphs and other visual representations.
  • Use brutal honesty, but do not be opinionated. State the true facts, and use appropriate language regarding the situation. Try to speak with the significant other about these facts, in order to represent the full story.
