BA 491: INSTRUCTIONS FOR WRITTEN CASE ASSIGNMENTS
Competition in the Golf Equipment Industry in 2009 Case.

All case assignments must follow a simple memorandum format with the following sections:
1. The paragraph, a short one, must contain a sentence must stating the response to the required topic. For example, if a recommendation is required, the sentence might start with “I recommend . . .” or “This is to recommend that . . .” If a question is given, the sentence must respond to the question directly. The paragraph should also contain a summary of the justification for the response. 2. The next paragraph or two should contain the justification for the response along with supporting data or information. The latter would be a reference to a concept in Strategic Management and should include facts and information in the case. Stick with information and data provided in the case, materials taken from other sources are not acceptable. 3. A concluding statement.
