Netflix case study | Financial markets homework help

Case Preparation:

Remember, the cases are graded per the rubric. Any analysis details should be covered in an appendix. The BoD would want your recommendations with the proper support.  Do not go to the Internet to find, for example, a SWOT analysis and use it for your case.  You are expected to do the research and develop your own strategic analysis.

In doing your cases you will need a minimum of five references outside the Case material from Thompson.  The Thompson information is to get you started. (Do not use just the data from the case.) One of the references should be the company’s latest 10K report. Wikipedia and QuickMBA type sources do not count.  Certainly do not use websites that develop term papers or do strategy analysis on these cases and publish them. Use current business websites to find out about recent developments.

The case study analysis allows you to apply your knowledge to the real world. Your goal is to identify the major problem confronting the subject company and provide a strategic solution for the problem. Each of the companies that you will be studying faces different situations in the marketplace. Your analysis of the case using strategic management tools and tools that you have learned in other classes will allow you to interpret what is going on in the companies in the marketplace. To fully understand the case you will need to collect data and interpret it. You must also isolate the critical issues that the company faces.  Remember that in the words of Lord Kelvin, “that anything that cannot be expressed in numbers represents knowledge that is of a poor and uncertain kind.” You will have to get into the numbers, ratios, annual performance change, etc.

After identifying the critical issues you can generate alternatives to address the company’s competitive situation. Evaluating these alternatives allows an organization to select one course of action. With a course of action defined the strategic manager can then provide a plan for implementation this is what you are to do on the case studies. Always refer to the rubric for the critical points to cover. The format for the case studies should be as follows.

In addition to the APA cover page, you need a one page, single spaced executive summary for the case as noted below. This one-page report should use headings and subheadings to identify the critical issues. Begin with your understanding of the situation in a problem statement. Follow this with a concise presentation of your analysis and the alternatives you see. Recommend one course of action and support that recommendation with facts and other information, such as competitor’s moves. The last item is presents a plan for implementation. After the one-page summary you proceed with the body of your presentation.  The summary page should encapsulate your understanding to the problems facing the company, a brief summary of the strategic analysis, financial analysis, the alternatives considered and a single recommendation with an implementation plan.

After the executive summary page, you are to use standard APA formatting and a 4 to 5 page expansion upon the points you have made in the executive summary. Tables, charts, graphs, etc. are to be put in the appendix and referenced from the body of your paper. Deductions may be taken for papers where the body is longer than six pages. Remember, in management you must get your thoughts across quickly if you expect your work to be read. Long reports generally wind up in a stack awaiting reading at some future date (which never comes).

Case Study Report Format:

Your report should include:

I.          NSU Cover page (1 page in length).  It will present the name of the case and the author(s) of the report.

II.         Executive Summary (1 page in length). 

            The Executive Summary is a concise overview of the report.  The Case Study Report should be written from the perspective of an outside consultant, writing to the Board of Directors of the firm.  It notes the essential points of the report and should have the following sections:

A.              Problem Statement: State the main problem facing the firm (or industry) in one, succinct sentence.

B.               Analysis: Summarize the main findings of your analysis.  You may use bullet points, bold, italics – any means to convey and highlight the key factors you have determined based on your analysis. Don’t repeat items from the body of your report like the SWOT.  Summarize the major issues.

C.               Alternatives:  State briefly (one sentence or a bullet point each) 2 or 3 alternative courses of action that could be implemented

D.              Recommendation:  Choose one course of action and support your choice.

E.               Implementation:  Briefly (2 or 3 sentences) present how the plan would be implemented.  This tests the viability of the choice.  For example, your plan would demonstrate that the company has the people, financial resources and time to implement your recommendation.


These bullets should appear in your paper. The following is a precise format of the Case Studies.


            FORMATTING for Executive Summary:

·  Single-space

·  One inch all margins

·  Use bullet points, lists, or other means to convey information briefly.  Further explanation can be found in the main body of the report.

·  Use headings and subheadings to organize the material in an easy to read and understandable manner that highlights the essential points of your analysis.

·  Do not include a summary or overview of the firm in your report.  All parties are knowledgeable and need no background presented.    


The body of your paper should be in standard APA format, with appropriate references.                   


Remember that cases are graded per the rubric. The Case Study rubric can be found in the Rubric file.

Week 1 report | Instructional Design


Project: The ADDIE Model: Analyze

Over the next few weeks, we will evaluate how the ADDIE model—analysis, design, development, implementation, and evaluation— can be applied to instructional design. The model can be applied to both higher education and a real-world organizational training needs. Each week of the course project, we will leverage a step in the model, creating relevant documents for a specific problem or topic of interest.

For clarity, the course project will use the terms “course,” “curriculum,” and “training” synonymously to reflect a specific, designed instructional product comprising several weeks or units of material to address an identified need. In real-world contexts, the terms may have varied usage (e.g., course referring to a specific educational piece; curriculum referring to a set of courses or educational pieces; training referring to an organizational intervention or initiative). Because you will have the opportunity to select your own setting for your course project (e.g., higher education, organizational training, etc.), using the noted terms synonymously will help us achieve clarity and consistency in the course project instructions regardless of the variety of contexts students in the course choose for their projects.

Course Project Summary:

  • Week 1—You will analyze the need and goals for instruction in a setting, institution, or organization of your choice.
  • Week 2—You will create a description of your proposed course and its learner objectives. You will begin using a Course Design Template that includes drafting the high-level sequence for the course, content types, initial presentations, and generative strategies for each week/unit of instruction.
  • Week 3—Adding to and enhancing your previous work in the Course Design Template, you will produce weekly, pre-instructional strategies (overviews) and three instructional artifacts (e.g., lecture, video-script, info graphic, etc.) for the week/unit 1 content of your course.
  • Week 4—Using a Course Planning and Budget Template, you will break instructional design of your course into a two month development sequence, detailing tasks, responsibilities, and projected costs for the analyze, design, development, and implementation phases.
  • Week 5—Adding to and enhancing your previous work in the Course Design Template, you will create a learner assignment or activity for week/unit 1 of your course. You will also design a grading rubric for the assignment and a summative evaluation plan for your course.

Week 1 Instructions:

This week, the deliverable will be an analysis summary, including components that appraise the need for instruction and discuss learner and contextual analysis. For your course project, you may choose:

  • To create curriculum materials for a higher education situation or
  • To create curriculum materials for an organizational training context.

Whichever choice you make (higher education or organizational training), you will continue that choice for each week’s deliverables.


  • Propose a setting for your instructional design project.
    • Summarize key details about the institution or organization you will use. What is it? What is its focus or what does it do? You can use your current institution/organization, a past institution/organization you are familiar with, or a hypothetical institution/organization.
    • What is the curriculum need (i.e., specific course) for the institution/organization? For example, a higher education institution might have identified a topic or skill that is lacking in a larger set of curricula or a program, a gap that has been identified via institutional assessment, and/or  a need proposed by an advisory committee, the industry, the market, or the scholarly literature. Similarly, an organization might have identified a performance gap that will require training to address. Provide evidence for the proposed need or performance gap.
  • Compose a goal analysis for the instructional design.
    • What are the course/training title and the course/training description?
    • How will this course/training address the identified need or performance gap?
    • What are three high-level goals for the course/training? (Note. Goals refer to institutional/organizational level goals. That is, what the organization aims to achieve. You will compose course objectives for the learner next week).
  • Analyze the expected audience or learners [target audience] who will engage the curriculum.

Case 1: Mass Murder

Andrea Yates was convicted of drowning her five children and given a sentence of life in prison.

Later, it was found that the sentence of life in prison was based on the inaccurate testimony of a highly respected forensic psychiatrist. Her life sentence was overturned, and she was found guilty by reason of insanity and sent to a mental hospital.

Yates suffered from severe postpartum depression and had been hospitalized for an attempted suicide before she killed her children. Yates was delusional and reported having thoughts that were degrading and persecuting her for her motherhood. She was also having command hallucinations telling her she was a bad mother and her children would grow up to be criminals, so she should save them by drowning them.

Case 2: Serial Killer

In 1980, John Wayne Gacy was found guilty of murdering 33 young men. He picked up some of his victims at a local homosexual bar. Other victims were taken home for “interviews” as prospective employees for his construction business. The remains of 29 victims were found buried under his home while the other four victims had been thrown into the Des Plaines River near Chicago.

Gacy always maintained his innocence throughout the trial and appeals process claiming someone else put the bodies in the crawl space beneath his house. Also known as “The Killer Clown,” Gacy used handcuffs and chloroform to subdue his victims, and then he would tie a rope around their necks and slowly twist until he squeezed the life out of them.

Gacy had been married twice and had two children from the first marriage. Both marriages ended in divorce when his wives found items from his victims or were unhappy from a lack of any sexual contact between them. During both marriages and afterwards, Gacy was considered an outstanding member of his community. Gacy was executed on May 10, 1994.
