HBS Cases We will discuss three HBS cases during the course. The cases should be purchased (in electronic form) at . The questions 6
about the cases that will be discussed in class will be posted on iLearn about a week before the discussion date. Active participants of the in-class discussion will receive bonus points of up to 2% of the course grade. The case grades will be reported on iLearn in the following form: • 5 points (0.25% of the course grade) - for marginal contribution • 10 points (0.5% of the course grade) - for good contribution • 15 points (0.75% of the course grade) - for excellent contribution • 20 points (1% of the course grade) - for outstanding contribution Normally, about a third to a half of the class receive bonuses after a case discussion. Remember that quality, and not quantity, counts. You will not be cold-called and made to participate in the discussion. I strongly advise that you attend the classes during which the cases are discussed even if you are unprepared/unwilling to participate. If you have to miss the class during which a case discussion is scheduled, or if you are not comfortable enough speaking during the discussion, you may turn in written answers to the questions about the case. You do not have to do it, but if you do, I will assign bonus points based on the written output too. The written answers have to be turned in before the class starts. Any written answers turned in after class get zero credit irrespective of content. Late Homework Policy Projects turned in one business day later lose 10%. Projects turned in a weekend later lose 20%. Projects turned in more than three calendar days later receive no points. Please refer to the text of the projects for the specific dates. Electronic Submissions All written assignments should be submitted in printed form. Please reserve e-mail submissions for emergencies and special circumstances. Whether you submit something by e-mail or not, please make sure that your write-up speaks for itself. I will not be able to go through your Excel documents to fill in the missing estimation results or to see how you got the answer you got. For partial credit, make sure that you tell me what you are doing. If your results look weird, but you are sure you are doing everything right and this is what the data are, mention that the results are weird and try to explain why. If you have to submit your work via e-mail, please make sure it is easily printable (e.g., if you wrote your answers on an Excel spreadsheet, hit print preview and make sure the 7
lines do not continue on the next page, printing would not mean printing out 10 pages of data inputs, etc.) Optional Final At the end of the course, I will post preliminary grades on iLearn. If you like the grade, you do not have to show up for the final and you do not have to tell me anything. The preliminary grade will become your course grade on the day of the final.
