Exercise Analysis

In addition to reading and preparing to discuss the assigned case studies, students will also prepare an analysis of three exercises during the semester.

Requirements

Summarize your analysis in a set of no more than 3 PowerPoint slides. Use the main slides to communicate the key points in a concise and direct manner. You may use the “notes” section on PowerPoint to add more detail and justification. Do not fill the main slides with text. The slides should include:

  • Specific details about the key facts and problems of the exercise.
  • Discussion on how specific issues in the exercise have broader application and to the class materials.
  • A balanced perspective which explains both the rationale for a recommendation (the why) as well as its feasibility (the how). Well-considered recommendations include discussion of potential threats to success as well as rationale for an organization’s ability to overcome them.

The process for submitting your exercise analysis is as follows:

  • Submit the exercise analysis via email to me (at wade.mackey@temple.edu) – no later than the day the analysis is to be discussed in class. The file should be in Microsoft Powerpoint (.ppt or pptx) format.
  • Please bring the analysis to class on a flash drive and also bring a printout and make sure you hand it to me before the class starts. You may be asked to lead a discussion about the case using your slides.
  • Late submissions will not receive assignment credit.
