Part C: Issue Background Your objective in Part C of the first project assignment (customnursingassignments.com) (Project assignment (customnursingassignments.com) #1, Part C: Issue Background) is to provide background and commentary on the general problem or issue you intend to focus on in your case. Your submission should be approximately 1,000 words. You should think carefully about what information to include and about how to organize it. In addition to doing background work on your case site and its environment, you also need to do background work on the general problem or issue you intend to make a focal point of your case. At this point, although you may not be able to precisely articulate your case problem or issue, you should at least have a general idea of the kind of problem you’re interested in. For example, you may be interested in ethical dilemmas, compensation issues, product launches, new types of business models, or different types of social responsibility initiatives. Doing background work may help you narrow your focus and identify specific aspects of your problem that may be particularly appropriate for a business case. Be sure to choose a problem or issue that is likely to correspond to your desired decision level. Finally, remember that good cases generate discussion and debate, so do your best to choose a case problem or issue that will create openings for different points of view and different analytical perspectives. Once you have a general problem or issue in mind, these prompts are designed to get you started on background work. Because some of these questions may not be applicable to your specific problem or issue, you shouldn’t attempt to address all of them.
