Ecision-Making and the Internal Dynamics of Public Organizations case study
Using case we have reviewed in class as models (see Wichita case, for example), students may draft an original case that details an innovative practice or series of practices on the topic of Administrative decision-making). For this assignment, students may focus their case on how one public agencies or nonprofit organization has implemented similar practices (take care not to sacrifice depth of analysis for breadth). In their cases, students are expected to thoroughly integrate analytical frameworks presented in lecture, course materials)

The paper is not an analysis of a case. It should be an original case based on one topic. It should be a case which has similar style of example cases I listed in the instruction!
