ecch connect - issue 06

Welcome to the April issue of ecch connect!

In this issue we celebrate case writing.

At the 2013 Case Awards and Competitions an unprecedented seven schools from around the world were first time winners (see below for a full list), demonstrating how excellence in case writing is spreading worldwide. Our featured cases section profiles some of the winners along with a brand new case on Boeing that we're sure will take off too!

If you're considering developing your own teaching case why not take a look at our feature on case writing. We offer practical guidance for writers and top tips from experienced case authors.

In our other feature you can find out more about the winner of the first ecch Innovation in Case Teaching competition - a must read for case teachers everywhere.

Best wishes
