The Case Centre Connect Issue 17

Dear colleague

Welcome to our winter issue of Connect!

Have you ever wondered what’s involved in managing a case collection? Find out more in our interview with Steve Momper, Director for Darden Business Publishing. You can also meet Formula 1 fanatic, Mark Jenkins, in our ‘5 minutes with…’ feature, and find out why INSEAD’s Stanislav Shekshnia believes role play is so powerful in our feature about his Board Process Simulations.

Football, family businesses and banking in Oman also come under the spotlight. Will traditional values at FC Barcelona have to be sacrificed to ensure its continued success? Can an outsider take the reins at a hugely successful family concern? And can Bank Muscat build on its success by ‘encouraging everyone to think outside the box’?

Best wishes
The Case Centre team
