I took a look at the website of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company. The Case Study Analysis services were presented as a way to provide assistance and expert insight for any individual or business who has a problem, needs advice or insights about their company or products. All web pages including the FAQ page offer a link to the Case Study Solution Services that have been discussed in previous articles on this site. This Case Study Solutions Service is presented in the form of “case studies” which one can either download or request for a company report.
I thought the cases used by the Case Study Analysis Service had the same goal. The services offered in the website all seem to include the same set of cases and guidelines. There are some cases that use a lack of business planning or general problems about the service provided. As far as the specific issues I was looking at, there is no mention of the HBR Case Solutions.
But the Case Study Solutions actually is available in the web page for the Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company. The “products” included in the web page for the Case Study Analysis service include the Case Study Solution Handbook and Case Study Guide. The case studies that will be part of the website also includes HBR Case Solutions.
So I opened up the case studies in the Case Study Solution Handbook. I noticed that the first page of the case study did not contain the HBR Case Solutions. This could mean that these case studies were intended to be freebies. But then again, I assumed that the Business Consultant was being paid to give the freebie to interested parties. They would have to know what was supposed to be included in the case study.
When I opened up the first case study, I did find the HBR Case Solutions. The Case Study Solution Handbook included the HBR Case Solutions. The Case Study Solution Handbook provides several links that leads one to the HBR Case Solutions. Again, I assume that it was paid to be included in the web page.
This is why the hotel company was suggesting that the case studies provided had been developed specifically for them. The website clearly states that the companies are all available at the company website. If you need help or input on your business and how to improve it, you can go to the web site and download the case studies.
In this Case Study Solution I learned that the most common problems that are found are about lack of work strategy and strategies. A business that doesn’t have a solid work strategy and doesn’t have an effective marketing plan is far less likely to survive. The hotel industry is no different than any other industry that is struggling to get a foothold in a competitive market.
The Case Study Solution Handbook makes clear that the hotels that don’t have a work strategy are more likely to go out of business than those that do. This is the most common issue that is discussed.
Another finding that was common with the hospitality industry is that there is a long list of issues that can lead to bankruptcy. The aforementioned lack of marketing plan and not having a marketing plan can lead to bankruptcy.
The Case Study Solutions that is provided is also useful. The HBR Case Solutions comes with the Case Study Solution Handbook A1 and Case Study Solution Handbook.
There are many options that can be taken to improve your businesses and take advantage of Case Study Solutions. . Here is a helpful way to find Case Study Solutions.
