Case study porn

Euen Semple

A while back I tweeted "Stop reading case study porn and get on with it".

The fabulous case study of Queensland Police on Facebook

Ross Dawson

There are many challenges, given that individuals are posting on the Queensland Police Facebook page, sometimes about things that are not officially in the public domain, however these are just dealt with on a case by case basis rather than in massive policy manuals. I hope that public sector organizations in particular look carefully at this case study on how valuable social media can be, if approached with the right attitude

Is the case study method of instruction due for an overhaul?

Jay Cross

Working Knowledge , an online forum from HBS, gave Professor Emeritus Jim Heskett a platform to raise the issue of the relevance of case study instruction. Heskett’s original article noted that “The case method has become synonymous with education for management.
