SUGGESTIONS FOR CASE ANALYSIS Note : The most difficult task students usually face in Accounting 2010/2011 is learning to do case analysis. The mini-cases are integral to the problem-solving orientation of the course. They form a major part of exams, assignments and class discussions. We are providing the following suggestions to help you think through a case analysis. The suggestions do not necessarily apply to all cases. You must consider the relevant ones for the particular case. Also, we do not expect you to fully understand each of the suggestions on first reading or by the time you attempt your first case. Your understanding should improve with experience and with class discussion. 1. Read the case carefully, completely and thoroughly before beginning. Think before writing your response. You may find it useful to outline your response before writing. 2. Identify the role you are asked to play and understand the perspective the role implies. Play the role consistently as you develop and write your response. 3. Identify constraints. Constraints impose limits on how you can account and report. For example, are there any contracts or laws that impose limits? Do not list constraints unless they are used in your analysis. Constraints you identify should be reflected in your analysis. 4.
