Module 2 Case Analysis Assignment 1

PRM 522 Case Analysis Guidelines and Requirements

As you progress through this course, you will encounter several companies in the textbook that havegone through a process in which best practices have been evaluated, developed, implemented, andmonitored. These companies have established hundreds of individual best practices that can beobserved, duplicated, and used in other companies. You are assigned three different companies toperform a case analysis of those best practices.

This assignment requires you to identify and evaluate the best practices that the three selectedcompanies developed and implemented in the cases contained within the textbook, and answer severalspecific questions related to the best practices of these three companies. In addition, you are to identifythe best practices that were used, and analyze them for their effectiveness.

The content that must be included in each case analysis increases as you progress. “Perform youranalysis through chapter 4, 8, and 12” means that you are to only use the analytical tools and informationdiscussed up to that point in the textbook. As you progress through your textbook, you will encounterseveral companies in the textbook that have gone through a process in which best practices have beenevaluated, developed, implemented, and monitored. Thus, each chapter illustrates different processesand varying levels of implementation of the best practices that these companies have established. Youare to address only the chapters that have been covered at the specific point when you perform the caseanalysis. Many of these individual best practices and processes can be observed, duplicated, and usedin other companies. You are assigned three different companies to perform a case analysis of the bestpractices that were chosen during the development and implementation process previously discussed.

Case Analysis will be completed on the following companies:

? Continental Computer Corporation (Use Knowledge attained through Chapter 4).Case 1 dueSunday 11:59 PM EST/EDT of Module 2.

? Case 2: Haller Specialty Manufacturing (Use Knowledge attained through Chapter 8). Case 2due Sunday 11:59 PM EST/EDT of Module 4.

? Case 3: The Space Shuttle Challenger Disaster (Use Knowledge attained through Chapter 12)Case 3 due Sunday 11:59 PM EST/EDT of Module 6.

Your primary objective in the case analysis assignments is to identify and evaluate the best practicesthat the three selected companies developed and implemented in the cases contained in thetextbook. Requirements for each case analysis include:

? Specifically address the case questions asked in the textbook. In addition, specifically identify thebest practices for each of these three companies up to the identified point in the textbook.

? In addition to answering the case questions in the textbook, you must address:

? Why or why not the specific best practice was effective.

? Did it work?

? Why or why not?

? Identify and document the feedback loop used to determine the success of the best practice. Ifone was not present, create a feedback loop that would work in providing effective and efficientfeedback.

? Discuss whether or not each best practice would work in other departments, organizations, orindustries. If it would work in other domains, explain how and why. If not, explain why it wouldnot work.
