Information in the case study.
The student must also keep in mind that different kinds of information are presented in the case study.There are facts,which are verifiable from several sources. There areinferences, which represent an individual's judgment in agiven situation. There is speculation, which is informationwhich cannot be verified. There are also assumptions,which cannot be verified, and are generated during caseanalysis or discussion. Clearly, all these different types of information are not equally valuable for managerialdecision-making. Usually, the greater your reliance on facts(rather than speculation or assumptions), the better thelogic and persuasiveness of your arguments and the qualityof your decisions.
