    Task Description for Case Study Journals
    Students are required to write two journals which analyze case studies from the following list and which relate to the matching topics.

    Theory Topic Case Study

    What Is The Purpose of Writing Journal Entries?
    The purpose of writing case study journal entries is to strengthen the link between business theory and real world business practice through thoughtful analysis and application.
    How does theory link to actions taken in a real world business environment and which leads to organisational effectiveness?

    A case study journal entry starts with reading. As you read, underline or highlight the parts that stand out to you as interesting, important or relevant to the theories you have studied in Business Management. 
    How Do I Write a Journal Entry?
    A case study journal entry consists of at least one direct quotation of the part you underlined in the case study, copied word for word and enclosed in quotation marks. Be sure to reference the author(s), the year of publication and page number in parentheses after the quotation. You should follow with an explanation of why you found the passage to be relevant and supportive of your analysis.
    You should write about how the case study relates to a theory or several theories you have learnt in a particular topic in Business Management. Make sure you write thoughtfully and analytically when you address the key contents listed on the checklist for each case study journal.
