The Case Centre Connect Issue 51, April 2021

Dear colleague

Welcome to the June issue of Connect!

Our two in-depth features bring you reflections from educators around the world on the switch to online teaching during the pandemic, and the late Debapratim Purkayastha’s thoughts on management instructors’ strategies to teaching amidst the COVID-19 challenges.

In our first featured case a family-run medical startup faces an array of strategic and ethical challenges.

Next, the manager of Spain’s second largest hospital is looking towards post-COVID management.

In the third case a Moroccan family healthcare company weighs up whether to sell some of its equity.

The last is a simulation case where students have to make their decisions as the founder of a new platform venture in the sharing economy.

Finally, Anne Wilson, General Manager of the South African Business Schools Association (SABSA), takes the ‘5 minutes with…’ hotseat.

Stay safe and healthy!
