Case Study Instructions: Overall

As your case study analysis develops over the span of the course, you will synthesize the research data and outcomes of the nine-step assessment process in order to assess the long-term financial health of the chosen company.

Part Three

In 250 words, develop an introduction to your analysis that can serve as an overview. Consider factors that might impede their ability to focus on the information you are presenting. For example, some of your audience may be pressed for time, another may have a crisis in their work team that needs to be attended to quickly, and others may simply not be paying attention. You have one chance to impress them; keep your overview focused, succinct, and informative. Present only key and other potentially relevant points this group needs to know.
