You will analyse a case study and submit a written report based on questions I will ask you. The goal is not simply to answer the questions, but delve deep into the strategic decisions and options available to the actors in the case study. Why would you do in their situation and why? Do you think they are acting rationally? Could they do better? How can they avoid the situation they find themselves in? These are but a few of the many questions you may ask yourself.
