Individually, I'd like you to submit an analysis after reading the case which includes the following: See page 529 and go through as much of the analysis(Strategic Case Analysis: points 1-4) as you feel is necessary to understand the case. Select only two ratios to perform. A.Make a concluding diagnosis. B. Make a Formulation statement C. Make an implementation statement/s.
This last step with the IBM case will assure you of a good grade if you put in the effort. Remember this is the class that demonstrates your understanding of many of the things you were to learn in the undergraduate program. I will submit the 3 best analyses to the department head.
