Training Objectives
At this very interactive and practical workshop, participants will learn about the case study—the history behind it, and its benefits and limitations. They will then be taught as to what makes a ‘good’ case. Instruction would be provided on how to design a case study – ensuring that the key areas of the introduction, body, conclusion and exhibits - are covered systematically. The workshop would also include tips on how to teach a case.

For the participants, we expect that developing in-house case studies would provide the following key benefits for their students/audience:
  • To demonstrate stronger critical thinking skills
  • Make connections across multiple content areas
  • Develop a deeper understanding of concepts
  • Be better able to view an issue from multiple perspectives
  • Take a more active part in class
  • Become more engaged
  • Develop positive peer to peer relationships
Pre-Workshop Requirements
  • Participants are required to come to the workshop with a definite idea and learning objectives for a business case. They need to identify a company, the case protagonist, and preferably (not mandatory) obtain permission from the company to write the case.
  • Participants are requested to share their case idea and learning objectives with us by two weeks prior to the workshop dates.
Post-Workshop Activities:
  • By the end of the workshop, each participant will have successfully drafted a 2-3 page Case Plan. The Case Plan includes the opening paragraph, the outline of the finished case by subtitles, list of data requirements, and a time plan. This plan is the basis of each case study.

  • Participants will receive feedback on the Case Plan from the workshop trainers within a few weeks of the completion of the workshop.
