  • Evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the approach and what might be done differently using the Fabrics, Inc. example.
  • Identify the sources of data used in the analysis.
  • Discuss how closely the approach corresponds to the ideal model presented in the Blanchard and Thacker (2019) text. Consider the advantages and disadvantages of the assessment methods used.
  • Describe at least two additional methods that could have been used, providing rationale as to why these methods could be used.
