3rd, 5th, 7th & 8th March, 2022


Indian Institute of Management Calcutta Case Research Centre (IIMCCRC) of IIM Calcutta is glad to announce its 9th Case Method Workshop to be conducted over four days, during evenings.

DATES OF WORKSHOP: 3rd (Thursday), 5th (Saturday), 7th (Monday) & 8th (Tuesday), March 2022.

MODE OF DELIVERY: Online (over zoom platform)



Case Method has evolved as a very effective pedagogical tool in engaging students through real-life managerial decision-making scenarios. However, academicians often struggle with finding appropriate cases for their deliverables and wish to fill the gap by developing their own cases. Very often, they find the case-writing process very challenging. IIMCCRC’s past case method workshops have highlighted the need. This workshop offered by IIMCCRC of IIM Calcutta is exclusively dedicated to meeting this demand for handholding in case-writing.
This workshop aims to develop skills for writing highly effective cases through a participative and feedback-oriented approach. The workshop is broadly divided into three modules: Case Ideation & Proposal, Developing the Case, and Developing the Teaching note. Each module is interspersed with relevant assignments combined with feedback from experienced faculty. Additionally, the workshop allows the participants to interact and network with academics and practitioners from diverse fields of expertise and learn from each other’s experiences.


  • Learning the craft of developing and writing highly effective cases
  • Introspection and feedback on the assignments on case proposal, case development, and teaching note
  • Certification of participation in the workshop
  • Expansion of professional and personal network

The IIMC Case Research Centre (IIMCCRC) was set up in 2012 as one of the distinct centers of excellence of IIM Calcutta. The idea was to create a world-class repository of cases and teaching notes that can be used by its faculty members and academicians at other business schools in India & worldwide. The primary objective was to meet the growing demand for India-focused high-quality cases among academicians and practitioners. It also had a mission to:

  • Champion the cause of case-based learning in Business Schools in India
  • Provide resources and create opportunities for new and existing faculty members who are interested in developing case studies
  • Establish a strong communication channel between the academic community of IIMC and the Indian business community and create an environment for mutual learning.

With its constant and active engagement in developing cases based on key industry challenges and success stories in Indian companies, it is proud to have successfully reached a rich collection of more than 100 teaching cases today. These cases span multiple management disciplines such as Strategy, Entrepreneurship, Finance and Accounting, Marketing, Supply chain management, Organizational Behavior, and Information Technology & Analytics. These cases are authored/co-authored by faculty members of the institute.

The center has been active in conducting case method workshops focusing on case writing and teaching with eminent global experts as speakers. These are well attended by academics and corporate professionals from India and abroad.


IIMC was established as the national Institute for Post-Graduate Studies and Research in Management by the Government of India in November 1961 in collaboration with Alfred P. Sloan School of Management (MIT), the Government of West Bengal, the Ford Foundation, and Indian Industry. IIMC’s vision is to be an International Centre of Excellence in all facets of Management Education, rooted in Indian ethos and societal values. Its mission is “to develop innovative and ethical future leaders capable of managing change and transformation in a globally competitive environment and to advance the theory and practice of management.”

Today, the institute serves as an autonomous body, continually evolving to meet its goals in an ever-changing business environment. It has blossomed into one of Asia’s finest Management Schools, playing a pioneering role in professionalizing Indian management through its Postgraduate and Doctoral level programs, Executive Training Programs, Research and Consulting Activities.

IIMC is the first accredited institution in India with the “Triple Crown,” having won international accreditations from AACSB, EQUIS, and AMBA. It is also the sole Indian member of CEMS, a global alliance of elite management schools.

The institute makes extensive use of cases in its postgraduate courses as well as in executive programs
