[email protected] 1 Course: CPIS606 Information Systems Strategy Assignment: Case Study Date: Fall20172018 Submission Date : As Syllabus 1.0 Mini Case A horizontal Perspective . Unlike standard cases that develop a single issue within an organizational setting (i.e., a "vertical" slice of organizational life), mini cases take a "horizontal" slice through a number of coexistent issues. Rather than looking for a solution to a specific problem, as in a standard case, students analyzing a mini case must first identify and prioritize the issues embedded within the case. This mimics real life in organizations where the challenge lies in "knowing where to start" as opposed to "solving a predefined problem." Highly relevant information . Mini cases are densely written. Unlike standard cases, which intermix irrelevant information, in a mini case, each sentence exists for a reason and reflects relevant information. As a result, students must analyze each case very carefully so as not to miss critical aspects of the situation.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
