Case studies are an important part of most graduate programs as they reveal more readily the concept or theory discussed in a real-world context. Consider the chapters you have read from Hess & Cameron that present a case study of an organization. In each of these chapters, the way organizations incorporate various values is described in real-world scenarios. This helps us see how the value, reactions to the value, and outcomes from demonstrating the value might be displayed—and thus, presents a rich case for learning best practices. For your Case Study Paper, approach the assignments as an addition to Hess & Cameron as you will select an organization and review a biblical value that the organization has displayed. Remember, just as Hess & Cameron demonstrate, biblical values can certainly be displayed in secular workplaces; after all, all truth is God’s truth!
A general format for the paper is:
- Title Page
- Background of the company selected
- Discussion of the biblical value
- Discussion of how the value is displayed
- Lessons learned
The paper must be 8–10-pages (not including Title Page, Abstract, or Reference page) and must include at least 5 scholarly resources in addition to the course textbooks and the Bible. The Case Study Paper is to be written in third person and must be in current APA format.
The Case Study Paper is due by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Sunday of Module/Week 5.
