The Case Centre Connect Issue 33, Spring 2018

Dear colleague

Welcome to the Spring issue of Connect!

We begin with the Fabergé case series for the first featured case, as the heritage jewellery brand is brought back to life by a leading venture capital business.

Social media analytics is the focus of the second featured case, where Twitter data helps the Red Cross’ Communications and Information team detect a stakeholder on one of their missions in Africa.

We then head over to the other side of the Atlantic, as sisters Christine and Carine attempt to open one of their Lebanese cuisine stores in New York.

The final featured case involves the Camden Coalition of Healthcare Providers, who are contemplating whether to push ahead with a Housing First demonstration project.

Elsewhere, the Dean of Antwerp Management School, Paul Matthyssens, is in the ‘5 minutes with…’ hot seat, we take a closer look at our new Undergraduate Case Teaching Licence, and discuss why certain companies are so popular as case subjects.

Best wishes
The Case Centre team
