Selecting a case
You are allowed to pick a case based on your interest, yet it is recommended to select a larger company as it will be easier to find sources for your analysis. Some examples could be H&M, Accenture, Apple, Nike, Dell or Uber. Feel free to select a company which is of your interest and could be a good subject to this project. If you select a single company, you apply learned theories onto it and for instance compare its specific positioning with a market within which it operates.
