I love packages, particularly when they come in brightly wrapped boxes with my name written on them. Those are the best kind. We are a package culture. We like our groceries packaged in bags, our to-go meals packages in boxes and our records packaged in file folders. Packages make things handier to find an easier to carry. They also gather together things so we can make more sense of them. While getting your college degree you will learn how to write a case study. In essence, you will be learning how to put thoughts into a package.
A case study is a concise analysis of a situation usually presented for review or action. Before a new business or enterprise gets started the initiator must first present a case study of the area and need or problem that business can solve. The best way to begin a case study is to know the case fully and be able to look at it from all angles. One of the bonuses you get while pursuing a college degree is how to write with a certainly amount of objectivity. A case study is business, never personal. After learning all there is to know about the case, divide the elements into categories to be placed in a package. The categories are a description of the case utilizing your research, the problem or need the analysis reveals, possible solutions to the problem, and you recommendations for the future.
You’ll notice people don’t like to carry around big, bulky, awkward packages. They want to carry small, balanced ones. The same is true for your case study. Although it should contain a lot of information, the overall design needs to be compact. Each sentence must carry an important message and led to the next one so it flows together as one process. Most case studies are around 500 words long unless assigned a particularly complex case. Be clear and to the point with your case study so your readers can get the most out of the package you give them.
When you’re in college getting your degree, most of the things you learn will not be taught in the classroom as a subject. They will be taught be developing the habits to make your assignments succeed. Packaging is one of those lessons and the world of business awaits those graduates who can do it well.
