Group Project Report Guidelines

Your  team (3-4 members) can choose  any case  in your  textbook. You will write a report and create a presentation on this case and  its company. Presentations are scheduled on the last two days of class and the  report  is due at  the  time of  the  presentation. You will present in order by group number. The report  is worth 150 points and the presentation is worth 50 points.

Your group must choose a case by week three  of  the semester. Your  professor  must approve your topic so that duplicate presentations are avoided. Therefore, topics are approved on a first come, first served basis. You can email your case or two or three to me, and I will let you know if that case is still available,
