The Case Centre Connect Issue 11

Dear colleague

Welcome to the June issue of Connect!

We interview Lesley Symons about her recently completed thesis, Where are the Women Leaders?. Does it matter that so few cases feature women? Join the debate.

Also, toothpaste doesn’t talk back, but opera singers do – discover insights into managing creative people in our feature about the free Collarts case, Crisis in the Opera House. The challenges of leading in an alien culture are explored in Leading Change at Michelin’s Shanghai Factory, while in Team WIKISPEED: Developing Hardware the Software Way, we find out why the case author joined the team he wanted to write about.

Discover how business decisions can be a matter of life or death in the winner of EFMD’s ‘Best of the Best’ category, SMS for Life. And in the second of our two-part series, we take an in-depth look at how cases are being used in on-line courses.

Best wishes
