Infosys Case Directions/Requirements
For this week’s individual case assignment, I ask that everyone first read the preceding section in the text entitled ‘How To Conduct a Case Analysis’. If this is your first exposure to working with analyzing a business case, it can seem daunting. However, I plan to the role this out with you in conjunction with our progress with the text. For example, we will take an incremental building block approach.
Use the format posted in the announcement section (nine sections) of the course. Include all detailed information for sections 1 through 5. Based on section 5, you will have your focus for section 6.
Key Issues To Be Addressed: As you will see in the case, Infosys faces many external threats. At the end of the case, Adrian Patel is faced with a number of key issues impacted by those external threats.
Please address each of the following in your case analysis in detail:
Please address each of the following questions: How do the proposed tax code changes in both India and the U.S. potentially impact the U.S. Division? How does U.S. H-1B visa reform potentially impact her U.S. Division? Is Infosys more vulnerable in this respect in relation to competitors in the industry? Should the U.S. Division consider relocation? If so, why? If not, why? Please provide supporting data. These key issues should be your problems/issues to be addressed (Section 5). They should provide the context for the use of any analytical tool in Section 6. They should be the focus of your recommendations late in your case analysis submission. These are the purpose of your case analysis.
Be precise; support your reasoning for each question.
For section 6, I want your analysis portion of the case to focus on what is covered in this unit’s reading:
Provide a detailed PESTEL analysis. Please be detailed on the points relevant to the key issues to be addressed. Utilize the relevant data from the series of charts provided at the end of the case.
Complete the remaining sections as an MLA format.
