Assignment: Case Study 1 (75 points)

Read the case study “Can This Bookstore Be Saved?” (this can be found as an attachment to the case study in Week 2 within Moodle).

·         The Case Study Review should include (2 to 3 pages)

o   This does not include title pages or reference pages

o   This is at least 2.5 written pages (page 3 must be at least ½ of a page)

·         Summary of the case

o   This should be thorough enough (but not plagiarized (meaning in your own words)) to give a reader who has not read the case a very good idea of what is going on

·         Answer to the questions at the end of the case which are based on the textbook readings or outside sources (these are not your opinion but you can include comments)

o   Such as Question 3-14 asks you to use the value chain and competitive forces models to evaluate the impact of the Internet on book retail stores such as Barnes & Noble.

§  Page 60 of your text book discusses the competitive forces and the Porter model

§  Page 61 looks at information systems in value chain analysis (the model is in figure 2.14)

·         Conclusion which is your thoughts on the case and its contents

·         In completing the case I want at least 3 in-text citations referencing the text book material or an outside source backing up your comments/answers

Present the paper in Microsoft Office Word document format. Name the file LastName_Case_Study_1.doc and submit it to the Online Venue (Moodle) by the beginning of Friday class of Week 3.

·         All written assignments and responses should follow either MLA/APA rules

o   Title page (in MLA the title is usually on the first page but, the instructor can request a title page and this is what I am asking for so that there is at least 2.5 full pages of content)

o   No paragraph spacing

o   Double spaced

o   1” margins (top, bottom, left and right)

o   12pt font size

o   Times New Roman
