You are required to submit three (3) paragraphs addressing these questions (no need to include the questions, just number your answers): As a hint, Q2 is the most important followed by Q3 and then Q1.
1. Analysis of the Case: What is the case about?
2. Analysis of the Case: What frameworks, theories or constructs assist in making sense of the case? How do they do this? (1-2 only, describing how it enables analysis)
3. Reflection: What can you (personally) take away from the case that could be applied in your future career (as a future business leader)? (Hint: Think of a context. For example, imagine you are at work and need to write a brief summary to your boss outlining the situation. They would expect (and trust) you to provide them with the most critical information and insights).
