You will have two tasks to complete for the Polaris Industries Inc.: Global Plant Location case (p. 449). One will involve a Group Discussion and the other will be an Individual Assignment. The information from both parts will be used for your individual Case Study Paper, due in Week 5.
The Individual Assignment will help you to focus your analysis of the case, apply course concepts, and accomplish the course Learning Objectives. You and your group members should discuss the best answers to the question or questions presented. Each member of the group is required to post a response to the assigned questions in the Group Discussion Board.
