are experiencing (or have experienced) at work.
Follow the step-by-step procedure to case analysis described below.
Your assignment should consist of three parts:
Part A. Case Description
This brief section should set the background for your assignment. You need to identify and outline the
central problematic case you are focusing on. Furthermore, it is also necessary to briefly introduce the key
protagonists and symptoms. Please provide enough background information related to your organisation

Part C. Conclusion
This section is dedicated to approaching solutions to the problem analysed previously. In this context,

alternative solutions to the problem.
? Identify which would be your final recommendation and consider it critically
