case centre connect Issue 09

Dear colleague

Welcome to the first Connect of 2014!

Are you ready for your close-up? You could soon be on camera if you follow the example of two case writers at Babson College, US, who have pioneered the use of video teaching notes. Find out more in ‘Lights, Camera, Action’.

Among the four cases featured in this issue is K2: Against All Odds, a study of the tragic events that took place on K2 in 2008 when 11 climbers lost their lives. In addition, LEGO’s history and recent threats to its continued success are detailed in LEGO Group: Building Strategy, while Greatview: Challenger of Tetra Pak and The Rise of Samsung Electronics both explore how established giants can be successfully challenged.

Finally, don’t miss our exclusive interviews with deans from leading business schools who share their thoughts on the future of the case method.

Best wishes
The Case Centre team
