Case Study 4-1
The popularity of Southwestern University's football program under its new coach, Bo Pitterno, surged in each of the 5 years since his arrival at the
Stephenville, Texas, college. With a football stadium close to maxing out at
54,000 seats and a vocal coach pushing for a new stadium, SWU president Joel
Wisner faced some difficult decisions. After a phenomenal upset victory over its archrival, the University of Texas, at the homecoming game in the fall, Dr. Wisner was not as happy as one would think. Instead of ecstatic alumni, students, and faculty, all Wisner heard were complaints. “The lines at the concession stands were too long”; “Parking was harder to find and farther away than in the old days” (that is, before the team won regularly); “Seats weren't comfortable”;
“Traffic was backed up halfway to Dallas”; and on and on. “A college president just can't win”, muttered Wisner to himself.
At his staff meeting the following Monday, Wisner turned to his VP of administration,
Leslie Gardner. “I wish you would take care of these football complaints, Leslie”, he said. “See what the real problems are and let me know how you've resolved them”. Gardner wasn't surprised at the request. “I've already got a handle on it,
Joel”, she replied. “We've been randomly surveying 50 fans per game for the past year to see what's on their minds. It's all part of my campus-wide TQM effort. Let me tally things up and I'll get back to you in a week”.
When she returned to her office, Gardner pulled out the file her assistant had compiled (see the following table). “There's a lot of information here”, she thought.

Case Study Presenting a case to a teacher is same as presenting it in front of a jury. You need to have structured and solid arguments to convince the jury (teacher, in your case) and prove your point. If you are an excellent lawyer, you can even convince the jury that your defendant is not guilty even if he is (not ethical, of course). The bottom line is: you need to structure your case analysis. Although every case analysis more or less follows the same pattern; there is a slight variation depending…

Case Studies Definition: A case study is an in-depth study of one person. Much of Freud's work and theories were developed through individual case studies. In a case study, nearly every aspect of the subject's life and history is analyzed to seek patterns and causes for behavior. The hope is that learning gained from studying one case can be generalized to many others. Unfortunately, case studies tend to be highly subjective and it is difficult to generalize results to a larger population. Types…
