How to write a case study
Stages of case study preparation
- Defining the key problem
- Defining the subject of an investigation that corresponds with the central question of the research (a company, a nonprofit or educational organization, some social initiative, medical case, etc.)
- Defining of the goal: what data should I search for to answer the main questions of my research?
- Collecting data: 3 basic ways
- Researching and gathering the information from the open archives and libraries
- Contact a company (or institution) representatives and for some available data that they can share with a student for his/her research.
- Last option (if the first two are not available): gather the data from other analytical works in which these companies and cases were already discussed.
- Data analysis and organization according to the research purposes.
- Building the case: showing how this case supports the key idea of the paper or answers its central question. Indicating what questions cannot be answered due to the lack of information. Drawing the prospects of the further research on this topic (if the missing data will be collected).
- Summing it up.
