About The Book

Case method, the most widely used tool in management courses, is a natural vehicle for deepening our understanding of the subject matter. Management and management education, being dynamic, case method of instruction continues to evolve and adapt. The book gives a background and then provides history of case method with an introduction to case method of instruction – this is for anyone who needs to know how to use case method. Given the state of the management education arena today, this could mean just about anyone, including people that are new to management or even teaching. Corporate and worldwide cases included in this book are based on real business situations and secondary published sources of data and reports. However, the names of the organizations and the individuals described in some of the cases have been changed based on request to protect their identities. Necessary camouflage, theory and situations are added to some of the cases to make them more analytical and to ensure higher degree of learning value.

To aid better, there is a case matrix for quick access to pick out a case for teaching or learning. It is like a ready reckoner to facilitate in realizing the interdisciplinary and interrelatedness of subjects and the need to have understanding of disciplines dependency for better decision-making. Subsequent to this case matrix, there are more than 75 cases covering different areas.
