Outstanding contribution to the case method 2012

The Outstanding contribution to the case method Award at the ecch Case Awards 2013 has been won by Peter Killing of IMD.

Peter KillingPeter Killing is Professor of Strategy at IMD and has a PhD in Business Strategy from Western University, Canada.

Professor Killing has been described by colleagues as is a truly remarkable case teacher, who is a master at running case discussions - possibly the most gifted - as attested to by many students and participants. He has 79 cases registered in the ecch catalogue, including many award winners and multiple best sellers. He has a wide following at both IMD and The Ivey Business School in Canada, where he previously taught.

Commenting on his win Professor Killing said: “I am very pleased that ecch gives recognition to good case writing, as cases, for me, lie at the heart of the teaching process. A great case leads to great classroom dialogue and that leads to learning.”

Professor Killing’s major research interest is the interface between strategy and leadership, especially in businesses implementing must-win battles and is currently examining these issues in family businesses. Recent cases include PepsiCo in Mexico, a turnaround situation that was driven by the creation of must-win battles; Crompton Greaves, a study of an Indian company proposing to make an acquisition in Belgium; and a series on the creation of Nestlé’s nutrition business. Now semi-retired, he lives in Western Canada (Victoria).
