Case learning is a method of applying theory to sound practical real-world applications. Each selected case provides a description of a problem situation taken from a specific company. The purpose of each case is to augment the course content with applications that enable the Learner to apply text materials to a problem and solve that application problem using Learner selected methods and procedures.
There are no exact answers or perfect solutions to case problems. Indeed, each recommended solution and justification can and is usually different comparatively amongst a group of respondents. The solution must fit the case and must be vigorously supported. The problem statement, analysis, selected solution, and especially the justification of the selected solution, are all critical elements in the case method. There are no shortcuts to case presentations but a formalized methodology that enables the case presenter the optimal way to solve the case problem.
