E-PARCC Teaching Case and Simulation Competition

Public managers often find themselves working beyond their organisations to address policy implementation and service issues. Today's managers need to be successful operating in multi-organisational networked arrangements and with the public to solve problems that cannot be solved, or solved easily, by single organisations.

To stimulate the creation of effective and innovative teaching cases and simulations in this area, the Program for the Advancement of Research on Conflict and Collaboration (PARCC) at the Maxwell School of Syracuse University sponsors an annual competition. This competition seeks to encourage the development of new cases and new simulations to be used in teaching collaborative public management, networks, governance, and/or problem solving.
