Learning with Cases
Written to help students prepare, discuss more effectively in small and large groups, and to learn better and faster in the case method. It provides students with a number of tools to analyze case studies, including the case difficulty cube, the three stage learning process, the short and long cycle case preparation process and the case preparation chart.

Writing Cases
Sets a new milestone on how to write good cases quickly. Case writing is identified as a three-phase process, and the book guides the reader through each phase. New ideas in this edition include the Case Origin Grid, The Case Shopping List, action triggers, and the story line and decision frame cuts. Another addition is the class testing of the new case. The development of the Case Plan with its five components remains as the central planning tool for effective case development. All of the material contained in this text has been tested in over 35 countries on all continents with thousands of workshop participants from many disciplines.
