Print Share
The case uses an original setting (Santa?s Workshop) to discuss aspects of operational finance decision-making. Using the framework explained in FN-471-E (Operational Finance II: Diagnosis and Forecasting), it provides the users of the case to apply the framework. The case is written for discussion of diagnosis and action plan. The A-case discusses previous part of the analysis (Analysis and Diagnosis of the situation as is).
