The need for research will depend upon your assignment.  In many cases, you will simply be using your class textbook and notes.  In other cases, you may need to find articles and books to support your case analysis and solutions. 

Should your assignment require outside research, it is unlikely that you will find research on the case study itself.   Instead, you will conduct research on the company (if it is real), the industry, and/or the management or business theories or issues/problems addressed in the case study.   The research won’t provide you with the answers, but rather support your analysis and recommendations.  Check out the Business and Management research guide for help in using library resources to find articles and books.
