For many business schools in the developing world there is a dearth of locally relevant cases easily accessible for instruction. Many faculty and institutions are focusing on developing more local relevant cases for their courses, however developing a case study can be a daunting and time consuming task. In addition to the importance of writing cases, case teaching is a unique skill that professors hone over time. Case writing and teaching can be much more effective when matched with a supportive team for mentoring. Join us for this webinar event as we focus on exploring the best practice for mentoring case writers.

Objectives of the Webinar

  • Learn what case mentoring is and what makes a good case mentor

  • Find out about the process of case mentoring from the initial outreach to the corporate interviews, writing, and ultimately instruction

  • Discover some of the internal and external factors that will promote the success of a case or provide roadblocks

  • Review personal examples from an experienced case mentor
