The Case Centre Connect Issue 15

Dear colleague

Welcome to our spring issue of Connect!

This issue is packed with inspiring stories and inspirational people, including Wee Beng Geok, the charismatic founder of the Asian Business Case Centre, who is the interviewee in our ‘5 minutes with…’ feature.

Our featured cases include Samsung’s European Innovation Team, which explores the amazing achievements of a customer-focused initiative, and Media Development Loan Fund, a success story in spite of a reluctant backer. We explore the story behind iDiscoveri – an educational company founded by a visionary entrepreneur, and also highlight a series of cases that focus on corporate social responsibility in Central and Eastern Europe.

Finally, don’t miss our in-depth exploration of cases written from published sources.

Best wishes
The Case Centre team

Grab a coffee and watch a short video guide to CoursePack Creator, your fast and easy way to create one-stop study solutions for students. "I think of cases as if they were like plays in which the students end up taking on roles given their perspectives and experience.” Mary Crossan, Ivey Business School. Read more. “It is very important for a fictional case to be anchored in concrete details that bring it to life, including appropriate and credible vocabulary.” Paul Saintilan, Dean of Collarts.
