For this assignment, you will conduct two separate case studies. You should include both in a single document to upload in Blackboard.
Case studies are an essential learning strategy in business classes; they provide an opportunity for you to critically analyze events that have taken place in real-life businesses. This develops your critical thinking and research skills as you research the competition and industry in which your business resides with an end goal of formulating a recommendation for the challenges faced by the company.
